Instructional video

Has Norwood ever made or considered making a series of instructional videos on sawmill operation and lumber production? I know woodmizer makes one but if I bought it I would kind of feel I was cheating on Norwood.

Not that i know of.  They tend to rely on customers, FWIW.   The reality is, the systems are so user-specific, I suggest that a we're so good video would be wasted.  There's a lot on line, and a lot of users here.  What are you're questions?  If i'd have known them Friday night, we could have answered them yesterday if what we were doing was on-topic. 

(not difficult, just not focussed on your issue-of-the-day)


P.S. Four years ago, I was a novice.  Not a whole lot smarter now, but my questions are different.  Ask away!

I have spent many years writing instructional material for Autodesk Inc. I could write better instructions for Norwood. IF Norwood is listening, please do not hesitate to contact me. Producing instructional materials, to be fair, is difficult. Producing material that stays current is expensive, especially since you need to produce to FIGS standards. You may want to invest in a content management system. But I highly suggest Norwood consider one. These systems are coming down in price and can expedite the process and help avoid costly errors. These content management systems are very similar and can be tied into your parts catalog or CMMS.

Not really any specific issues or questions. Just have a thirst for knowledge. I've watched just about every video I could find on the net and a few with the SPIB. I just get tunnel vision I guess. 21+ years in the army in a maintenance section and I try to find out all I can on a specific subject. I did a search on the internet for instructional DVD's and all that came up was woodmizers and the reviews said they were pretty dry.

Norwood has a series of videos on YouTube.  Here's one I did for them on quartersawing.  I plan to do more, but I'm pretty swamped with work.  If you subscribe to that YouTube channel, you'll find more and be alerted when new ones come out.

Good judgement comes from experience... experience comes from bad judgement.
