    Log jinker, cant hook or peavey

    This shifts logs up to 7m x 750mm x 2 tonnes into the Lucas mill (or to shift anything heavy). The tongs are used to lift the log off the ground to sling the chains underneath.

    At the end is shown a 'cant hook', or 'peavey', used to roll logs.

    There are no plans, I made it out of available scrap. The main beam is 90 x 90 x 3.5 square section, sliding into slightly larger sections at each end and a separate section for the middle hoist. Holes in the beam allow 2 long bolts to fix the end frames on the main beam at the chosen length. The end frames are made from square section steel 50-75mm x 3-5mm, with appropriate bracing. The wheels are off an old trailer. Chain winches are 2 tonne.

    Great device, olefella! I remember a similar jinker that an 'old fella' in Northern California built to do much the same thing back in the 70s, but his was a 4 wheeler, sort of like a homebuilt lumber carrier... Where abouts are you? Cheers

    Never heard the term Jinker before. I have a trailer made for a big propane company to move tanks. It is a horseshoe open back frame. 4x4x3/8 thick tube with an arch over the middle equiped with a big hand winch. When the tank is lifted high enough you slide cross pieces under it and lower it down onto them. It has short torsion axles under each side. Best 75 dollars I ever spent!
