Mingo Improved to Mark Logs for Firewood Length
SMH Inc. has made improvements to the Mingo, a light-weight, hand-held tool for marking logs to be bucked for firewood. It is made of impact-resistant plastic and dispenses ordinary paint used by contractors and surveyors.
The Mingo is positioned at the end of the log. Holding the easy to grip handle, the notched wheel is rolled the length of the log. As it rolls along, the Mingo clearly marks the log at the precise measured increments with a paint mark.
The Mingo measures and marks accurately, quickly and easily. With the improvements, it now can mark logs at intervals of 6, 12, 14, 16, 18 or 24 inches.
