For some time the Lake Hamilton Paper Company has been having trouble shipping paper from the Paper Plant. But now, thanks to Freddie Forklift (below), they are able to boost shipping significantly.

The Lake Hamilton has a long rolling building were pulp is turned into paper (above,left and right).

We can see that lights have gone up in the employee parking lot (above).

Looking inside (above) we can see that there is plenty of white paper behind door 1.

Several stacks of brown paper (above) can be seen behind door 4.

It look like there is plenty of paper stored behind Door 6 (above).

Plenty of paper is seen behind Door 7 (above).

We can see the tracks of Freddie Forklift (above).

But door 13 (above) still looks empty.

Many, many thanks to Geoff Bunza for his inspiration for Freddie Forklift.
Freddie is controlled by and Arduino Mini Pro micro-controller
and move by a model airplane servo mechanism.

Thanks so much Geoff.
