I received an email recently asking me to field test a new piece of American –made logging equipment called a LogJaw. It sounded like something I would have seen before, but on further investigation it proved to be useful for a wide range of jobs.
Essentially the LogJaw is a metal hand-operated lifting device weighing approx 1kg. It has three sharpened steel prongs, approx 2cm long, one of which hangs free from a pivot bolt. A comfortable, shaped handle with an incorporated knuckle protector is gripped in the hand allowing the user to ram the single metal prong firmly into the end grain of a crosscut log. As it is lifted, the other two prongs bite into the side of the timbergiving three points of contact. Further lifting increases their grip. Once the log has been moved, the device is easily detached by pushing the handle downwards, which frees up the two side prongs, and the single prong is easily removed from the end grain.
LogJaws are generally used in pairs, and can be used by two people to carry a large log with one person using a single LogJaw at each end, or by one person to carry a single log with a LogJaw in each hand. I experimented by shifting various sized lumps of timber with my logging assistant (daughter Ruby) around the yard. Our impression were that these implements are well-made, simple to use, versatile and effective.
Further opinions were gathered when I took the LogJaws to the UK Logging Championships at Woodfest Wales in early June. Everyone who tried them felt that they were a useful piece of kit, and were impressed by the quality of their construction and effectiveness in gripping the timber when lifted. (To be honest, I was lucky to get them back at the end of the day…!!).
