    Aloha Gang,

    Yup... got these and just stored them away... these are from Lehman's and run about $50 each before shipping....

    These are heavy duty beasts of a tool.... you will not break or wear these out.... and do not drop them on your toes ;)

    a few tiny dings from storage.....

    $40 each shipped Priority, insured with tracking to the USA only....

    Thanks for taking a look...

    Have a great day!

    Take Care and God Bless,

    Bear

    Saw cut a log into cylinders. Stand on end, and drive down on the froe blade with a mallet. Use the handle for leverage, and split off shingles for roof repair or siding.
    The cutting edge is on the bottom. Froe means "away", as in " to and froe" (toward you and away from you.)

    This is what knife batoning evolved out of. Search term Riving into google.

    I will admit when I read the title earlier I thought it was going to be a joke about afros.Thanks guys for the tool lesson. I had never thought how shingles were made.

    Aloha Gang,
    Let's spice this up a bit and get this out of my way...

    2 heavy duty froes....
    3 heavy duty framing chisels...
    1 mallet....

    All unused... except for a few blows on the mallet.... some surface rust from sitting in the shop drawers....

    Checked the receipts and it all came out to a bit over $400

    $200 shipped Priority Insured with tracking to the USA only....

    Go out and build something ;)

    Have a great week!

    Take Care and God Bless,

    Bear
