Parbuckling. (2)
To make: Pass a couple of ropes
several times round the log as shown
in the figure and haul on them. If
one ropeonly is used wind it near the centre
of gravity of the object.
Uses: To move logs & along flat
or up slightly inclined planes. If
there is any danger of the log running
back in the case of an inclined
plane, use wedges or stones to pre-
vent this as the last few turns are
being hauled on; and bind round fresh
turns before the ropes runs off.
