Thanks to you
Hey, Frédo, remember you, she was under construction on your diorama, at Richelieu 2009.
I am anxious to thank Mr Gordon Birell, because I was inspired by his machine.
Just another photo than I like

Hello the friends
To unwind of the construction of my machines, it there a few months, I enjoied building lumberjack's tool in the scale 20,3. The set is 4,5 cms high, built with parts of recovery,and he is functional.
A friend told me that it is called a "böker" or a "logjack"
Could the specialists tell me what the name is exactly?

I'm no specialists, but what you have is a log jack, newer than the one I have pictured here, but does the same thing.

Yours has a hook at the bottom (like a crow bar claw) to hook a chain, or, use the top as a jack to lift.
The following described device is very handy to hold and lower the tree after sawing the stump off. [a, planks with holes bored in them; b, log; c, chain; d, crotched limb; e e, lever; f, iron pins.] It is made of two hardwood planks about 8 x 5 inches and 1-1/2 inches thick bolted together at the top and bottom, with a 2-inch space between for the lever to work in. One-inch holes are bored through the sides of both planks, in which iron pins are placed for the lever to pry over. The lever is made of white ash, and has two notches near the large end, with a chain link attached midway between notches. A stout chain is hooked in the link, passed under the log, and attached to a crotched limb leaning slightly against the opposite side of the log. By working the small end of the lever up and down and moving the pins up one hole at a time, a good-sized tree can be raised from the ground high enough to be sawed easily without a backache.

The only Böker I know of is that "Böker or Tree Brand is a commercial manufacturer and distributor of knives, based in Solingen, Germany."
