I might be wrong but what you have pictured is not a cant. What problems are you having.

From that picture.... I am pretty sure the hook is supposed to be turned around the other direction.

I bought the 60" Log Rite and then gave Dad's old wooden handle one to my brother.

 

 

no going back to old one if I ever get it back it's going on the wall to be forgotten. :D

Nice variety MM.

Alabama, you should get a hookaroon as soon as you can. They are worth their weight in advil.

That 60" cant hook will guarantee you some leverage. Keep an eye out for a short one at flea markets, etc.  A wood handle won't get you in too much trouble with a short one. 

I bet you'll get hooked on sawdust.

I'll look into the hookaroon too. But if I can get the cant going first at least I can do something. :)

I use the Hookaroon to reach across and snag/drag stubborn flitches from the loader arms onto the sawmill bed.  Very handy.

I got in touch with Tammy a couple of weeks ago and now have a nice 60" Logrite. This is going to be so much better than my bending, screwed together, wood handled hooks. Thanks for the conversation guys!

I have found the handiest thing around a circular mill is a longish peavey and a shortish cant hook. A long cant hook always seem to hit the overhead or other parts of the mill. A two foot cant hook will turn a large cant and not get in the way. Establish a location for both, a pocket works out good that way you can reach around and grab it without the search. Frank C.

In order to fit in the box we have to reverse the direction of the hook.  On the hook is a sticker that tells you to change the direction of the hook.  On the directions and warranty sheet it tells you to reverse the direction of the hook before use.
Your counting on these guys being able to read! Me thinks some just look at the pictures.

Reading through this topic I noticed that since I posted the picture in my Reply #25, another Logrite has been added to my Logrite Corral:


 
Six is a much better number anyway.  logrite_cool

Last week I was dealing with larger logs so the Blue 60" Cant Hooks were used.  This week the logs are much smaller so only the two Orange 48" Cant Hooks have seen any service.  Not only are the lengths different but the hooks are also properly sized to fit different size logs. 

I added the Orange reflective tape to each of them.  The Green Hookaroon is a "one of a kind" and is the only Green one ever produced.  :)

60Log rite Peavey is my go to tool around the mill,I use it as a pry bar, and not just for logs, but moveing rocks, anything needs prying, used to tear down a deck once,even prying logs on the mill, the point works great I have a smaller  canthook when Im moving cants on the mill.
