Before composite roofs, most roofs in this area were made from shingles. A shingle mill “was used to slice a section of log into tapered wedges to create shingles.

The shingle machines were most likely built in Everett, WA by the Sumner Iron Works. They had four different models depending on hoe long of shingle you wanted to cut. The web site below tells some of the history of them.They were by far the machine of choice on the West Coast.
Thanks. This is great info. 🙂
