Description Timber jack used for shifting logs
The timber jack is a mechanical device which transfers the rotary motion of a double-ended handle to the longitudinal extension of a steel bar or ‘spear’, which is used to stabilise or roll very heavy logs.
Donated by Allan Sangster who owned a farm in Ward. It was probably not used in Ward but at Rai where Mr Sangster farmed before he came to Ward.
