Hookaroon vs pickaroons.
« Reply #12 on: January 21, 2016, 08:43:30 am »
Here is how the old Norwegians explained the difference to me.

Hookaroon is a woods tool with a tip shape that made pulling and moving logs around, it holds better. Most times then it was on the back of their limbing axe.



Pickaroon was a mill tool for sorting boards or pulling slabs.

That sounds like you could be on to something.   That is the best explanation I have heard so far.

I will have to measure the handles on the pickaroons and let you know.  I was out using them today and the one with the most hook definitely works the best so I will do some more grinding on the other one to get more of a hook on the point.

I have two 24" logrites and a 48".
The 24s get used the most for firewood and lumber.
The 48 is handy for reaching stuck stuff in the dump trailer or truck bed.

Roger looks like your pics was in the date of those that would be lost. Any embedded 12-30 after.

No sweat I have copy's of all those pictures.   As soon as the site is able to handle posting pics again I will post them back up.

Removing wood from my truck bed is what I use my pickaroons most for.   I like the ax handle one because I can use one hand on it to stick the wood.   The other Pickaroon I made is a little longer but it is to heavy for one handed use.
