Record #:
In the age of GPS devices, some tools introduced in the late 19th century are still tools of the trade for the lumbering industry around the world. Profiled and pictured are Caulk Boots, with spiked soles for traction and slippery surfaces; Pulaski Tool, with an ax on one side for chopping, a mattox on the other side for digging; and Biltmore Stick, used for calculating trees’ volume.
