Cant hook and peavey storage
« on: September 10, 2020, 11:10:02 PM »
For those that have stationary mills, How do you store cant hooks? I'm currently just leaning mine against the wall, or more often on the ground after it gets knocked over. I think I would like to hang them up if possible but haven't came up with a way to do that yet. All of mine are logrites if that helps.

Mine leans up against the hitch at the front of the mill. It always ends up there so it's easy to grab

If it's hollow, weld a length of round bar or rebar to your frame out of the way? Or if it's not, a piece of pipe to stick the end into.

For now my shed is small so I lean them up against a 2x4. when I make a bigger shed, I want to hang them horizontally, like on a gun rack, or just long screws or nails.

   I think the MagicMan hauls around a 40' storage container full of his. I heard he injured his leg last year because he opened the door of the container and the load had shifted and several dozen fell out on top of him and they had to get a loader to dig him out. :D :D :D

I just stick mine up with the hook between some rafters and let them hang down, works for me. I made two smaller ones with handles about  3 feet long for small logs and have a couple of medium size ones and one old antique one for the virgin logs.

When I built my toolshed last year I put in a couple screws that the cant hooks hang from just inside the door. It's tough to see in this photo but there is one screw sticking out about 2" from the wall that the hook part of the cant hook hangs on. A large hook at the top of the wall keeps the used blades in place. On the opposite side of the doorway is the same set-up for new blades with another cant hook hanging in the middle. This keeps them out of the weather and out of the way when I'm not milling. When I am milling they are out leaning against a post under the sawmill shed.

A round steel plate with a pipe weld perpendicular to it in the middle.  Holds it vertical anywhere and easy to roll around with peavy handle to move.

This is interesting.  All this time I thought they were designed to be leaned against something and fall over so you can trip over them constantly. :D That's how I have always kept track of them.  Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

The little hole in the tractor loader makes a handy storage spot when not in use.  The rest of the time it's leaning against the tool and accessory block.

You could drill a hole in your tool block to hold your canít hook in the upright position for quick access

This is what I'm trying to avoid!!!

You must have a better kind of ground than I do.  With the gumbo around here, it will either to dry and you would have to drive it in with a hammer or it will be too wet and won't support the weight of a peavey and said peavey will soon be lying on the ground.
