Help with a name please
« on: August 13, 2017, 11:36:17 PM »
Hi, some years ago now, a member posted a picture of oldworld Lumberjacks standing on a huge section of log.  Log hardly describes the chunk of wood which must have been over 20' diameter.

The log was wrapped around with steel ropes that would be used to roll the log out of the forest.

The picture gave the name of this method of rolling.

Does anyone remember the image or the name of the method of rolling huge logs please.

Hello Derek.

I believe Parbuckle may be what you are looking for. (?)

Thanks Scott, indeed it is.  I don't suppose you have any idea of the derivation of the name do you?  The name just does not seem to fit the 'tool'.

Hey Derek.

I have nothing concerning the etymology. Nor can I find anything worthwhile to pass along.
