Logging Tongs, custom grapple.

Logging Tongs, custom grapple.
These Logging Tongs will lift upright or pull a log.
I had some extra cant hooks so I decided to make a log tongs.
Cant Peavey hooks on a custom bracket shackle.
John in Eagle River by Fred Meyers 242 - 83two4For rent, is also an option.
These tongs do not have the counter lever for squeeze.
I will add 4 rubber pressure bands as pictured for extra squeeze if needed (they did fine for me without the rubber bands).
I will update as I go, thanks for looking.
The hooks are genuine Antique Blacksmith hand forged cant hooks.
They open up for a Maximum 20 diameter log.
5 fully extended.
(I just sharpened the 2 bits)(Currently using 5/16 bolts, could be opened to 3/8 but it is working well as is.
)All materials are reuse theme.
Not 1 new part, using what I have the goal.
Well the hook and link are like new out of my stock.
Its coming along nicely, I would like to run a couple weld beads across those outer tee plates, but I designed it to work also as is.
Thanks for looking, I am pleased with the performance so far.
I will offer a 30 warranty, if it needs repair, I will fix it.
I suspect you will not have problems.
Tech tip, these tongs work good sding on a road, as I sded a log 200 yards on asphalt and it was enough to wear the chain links in half, ouch, wish I had these tongs for that s.
Thanks, John
