Oregon Gator Speed Load Cutting System Review
The Oregon Gator Speed Load cutting system is one of the most popular and successful speed loaders on the market today. The company was founded in 1997 by two brothers named John and Michael O’Neill. They have been making their own products since then, but they were still not satisfied with their product until they decided to make a better version of it. They started to research how other companies made their equipment and tried to copy them.
After some time, they came up with a new design that had the same features as the original, but added several improvements such as:
A stronger frame
An improved motor
New attachments for different types of wood
They also developed a special coating that makes it easier to cut through wood. The coating is applied using a spray gun which allows for faster drying times.
In order to manufacture the product, they needed to purchase machinery from a manufacturer. Since there are many manufacturers, it was difficult for them to choose one. Finally, they chose a small company called J&E Industries because of its reputation and good working conditions. The cost of the equipment was very high at $1 million dollars; however, it proved to be worth every penny when the first batch of speed loaders sold out within days!
The first set of workers that the company hired had no experience. This was a problem since they decided to start selling the equipment immediately. The company started advertising for workers and received more than 2,000 resumes! They hired as many people as they could, but many of them quit after only a few days of work.
It turned out that many people were only interested in the job because it paid well; however, they did not actually like their job. Once the word got out that working at Oregon Gator was not fun, it became difficult to hire new workers.
In order to solve the problem, the owners decided to create their own training program. They hired a group of experienced workers and sent them to factory training in another state. These workers came back as instructors and taught other employees how to assemble the wood cutters. The employees who went to the training came back better trained and ready to work at Oregon Gator.
After three years, the company had grown to a size that it could not have imagined. Not only did it expand, but it became very popular both in the U.S. and around the world.
Oregon Gator started selling their products in Europe, Asia, and South America. Sales increased by more than $3 million dollars a year and Oregon Gator had to open a second factory just to keep up with the demand!
Today, the company is worth more than $20 million dollars. In order to keep up with growing demand, they have opened a third factory and have announced plans for a fourth one. They have also announced that they will be changing their name from Oregon Gator to Oregongineer in order to emphasize their expansion into new lines of “engineered products”.
The Oregon Gator Speed Load cutting system continues to be one of the most popular items in their line of equipment. It is so popular that imitators have appeared on the market; however, none of them can compare to the quality and reliability of an Oregongineer!

Another benefit of the new factory was that it allowed Oregon Gator to expand their product line. They designed and built new engineering machinery for making other products. These new machines were also installed in the new factory. The company is now well on its way to becoming an engineering company as well as a manufacturer of wood cutting equipment.
One day Mr. Baker came into your office and told you he had an idea that could expand the company even more.
“I’d like to get into the business of selling naming rights for our new machines,” he said.
“That’s a pretty big step,” you reply. “
What would we call these new machines?”
“Since the new machines are really quite different from our old ones, I think it would make sense to give them names instead of numbers. I was thinking that we could hold a contest and let people name the new machines. If enough people like the name, we can start calling them that instead of their serial numbers.”
“Hmm,” you say. “
What if nobody can come up with a name they like?”
“Oh, I’m sure we’ll get several good names. We’ve had the cutters for years; I think people will be able to come up with names that stick.”
“I suppose we could always go back to numbers if we don’t like any of the nominations.”
“Exactly,” Mr. Baker says. “
So would you like to submit an entry?
I mean, I’d be happy to if you don’t want to, but I figure you might find it fun.”
“Sure, I’d love to,” you say. “
What do I need to do?”
Mr. Baker hands you a slip of paper with a web address on it.
“All you have to do is go to this website and submit your nomination. There’s no sign-in or anything like that, so it won’t slow things down. Good luck!”
You walk Mr. Baker to the door and then head back to your desk to enter your submission. When you get there, you find that the website is very basic. All it has is a title at the top that says “Name the new Oregongineer Cutters” and a big button that says “Nominate”.
You type Oregon Gator’s website address into the address bar at the top of the page so you can save your work, just in case.
Then you write down your entry.
After you’ve finished, you hit “enter” and a new screen pops up with a message saying they’ll review all the entries and contact the winners soon.
You put the whole thing out of your mind and go back to work.
Over the next few weeks, you begin to hear rumors that some people have won the contest. You get a couple of calls asking if you want your name to be listed in the credits of the instruction manual for the new machines. You also get an email from Mr. Baker saying that they will be sending you a free machine, which you’re supposed to review and let them know what you think.
After getting the congratulations message, you promptly forget about it and go back to work.
A few months later a package is delivered to your apartment. You sign for it and take it inside.
You open the box to find a brand-new Oregongineer 700. It has all its parts, and there’s a hand-written note from Mr. Baker thanking you for your submission and telling you that the machine is all yours.
You smile and plug it in. Then you open up the instruction manual, which is nicely bound and looks almost professional. You turn the pages until you find your name in the list of winners.
