Default Log pull spike

Well I had a guy come by the other day with a job to make a log pull spike.. Time 1hr 30min.

The drawing he did was good but the design was off..

Most log pull spikes are pretty short.. Turns out he wanted on with a shank about 10" long.. Way to long to be useful, but..

So today I pulled out a bar of 3/4" hot rolled and started wailing on this thing.. The end product though good was made from mild steel as requested.. (I am shaking my head as I just typed that)..

The end of the bar was upset for about 3" of length to about 1.250.. Then the upset is offset on the bar..

The end was set for a striking end, and the side was drawn out with the cross pein hammer on the face of the anvil just over the table..

The spread out end is then offset and the end forged down for the striking end.. This offset side piece was then drawn out with the pein again..

This operation is much simplified with a good striker..

Luckily having the big HB anvil in the trailer made it doable in a timely fashion.. Working a large section on the 175HB on the light stand with the bouncy floor was brutal..

Here it is..

I did test it and the tip bent a little with some extra weight on it..

I may have to adjust the point geometry tomorrow..


This is the typical type item where a medium carbon steel would have been perfect..

Jen I'm not smart enough to figure out how it works. Can you show a pic of it rigged?

Your right it says to roll a log. She did say it was not her design and it did not work too well. Makes me wonder why the guy does not use a log roller???

Ah. As I said not very bright.

Seems like a job for a cant hook or peavey but who the hell am I to cut Jen out of work?

Around here when you talk about log spikes or boom spikes you're referring to something like what is shown in the picture. They're driven into a floating log and used to tow it--log salvage and beachcomber guys use them a lot. They're not strong enough to yard logs off a beach or to tie a boom together although they can be used temporarily when making booms up.

Cant hooks and peaveys are almost identical; cant hooks have blunt ends while peaveys have spikes on the end. The pic that Chris posted shows a cant hook. Cant hooks tend to be used more on small logs while a peavey is for heavier stuff where you can't wrap the hook around the log and need to use the spike to get some leverage....
