The Turning Oars collection features a series of photographs depicting the process of creating oars for Cape Kiwanda Wood Products of Pacific City by partners Paul Hanneman and Terry Learned. To look at the process chronologically, view the images in numerical order (Turning Oars 001 — Turning Oars 072). Terry Learned provided the description for this image.
This photograph provides a close-up view of the follower arrest. Using a series of springs, this machine part is latched around the shaft of the oar to help stabilize the material as the cutting head moves down the handle. At a specific point, the follower arrest will trip from the carriage as the cutting head gets close to the wider blade of the oar. The follower arrest then locks itself on the track.
