History Of Use
Some tie haulers preferred to haul the logs unhewn in the winter. They were taken to a site near the railway and left there until spring when they were easiest to peel. Then in April or May bark shavers or barker's spuds were used to peel the logs. (Information from previous card)

History Of Use
Angus McLean 1889-1969. Angus arrived in the Hazelton in 1909 as a prospector. He soon became disillusioned and went to work for the Public Works. He helped build the original road from Hazelton to Burns Lake. In 1912 he moved to Smithers. When it was known for sure the railroad was coming, he helped lay the first foundations of Main Street by filling up the swamp with trees & brush, then covering it with gravel. Throughout his life, he still had several mining claims. He worked some of these until 1957. For more info see Historical File: McLean, Angus.

History Of Use
Bucksaws were used to 'buck' logs or saw logs into lengths so that the lengths could then be split with an axe if needed. Buck saws such as this one are seen in 1908 Sears Catalogue. Buck saws were probably used on farms throughout the early 1900s.

Description
Cant hook has a modified wooden handle with a brace and large piveting hook on the end. The total length of the handle is 123.5cm with the metal collar attached 19.5cm from the end. The round collar brace has a bolt and nut which attaches the hook. The slightly arced hook is 32.5cm with a sharp point at the end. The cant hook has been modified as there is what appears to be an old license plate wrapped around the wooden handle and jammed under the hook brace for a snugger fit. A large nail has also been wedged in to allow for tight fit. The license plate has vague signs of old black and yellow paint. The corners are bent and there is extreme rust.
History Of Use
Cant hook used in forestry for rolling a log. Cant hook appears to have a modified handle made from a large stick that has been shaved and rounded to accomodate the cant hook.

History Of Use
Dating to 1947, this chainsaw was manufactured by I.E.L., Industrial Engineering Ltd. in Vancouver. They later became Pioneer Chainsaws. Handles were designed to swivel as they had float carburators and had to be kept level. There is a pin release at rear of carburator and the gas tank is on top. Model AB is indicated on the orginal donor information sheet. This saw likely came from donor's brother-in-law, who in turn acquired it from Paul Watson from Quick. Paul is not related to the family that owned the Watson Store. Source: donor's husband.
