Description (l to r) Cecil Noble (head splitter), Cliff ___, (gutter); Bob Snow (header); ___ (idler); WAWONA. After the codfish were on board, they were processed by the splitter, gutter, header, and idler. The idler puts the fish in the head-in box, the first step in the process. After each fish is cleaned and trimmed by the header, gutter, and splitter, it is sent to the salt-passer and on to the salter who salts the fish and places it down the shoot into the kench (salt troughs).
