    I'm looking for a set of small logging tongs, not ice tongs , but, real honest logging tongs. I need to move some chunks of firewood, and these would work great for how i have to do it. thanks

    I don't know how strapped for time you are, what you're specifically doing, how big the pieces you're moving are, or if you're experienced at moving timber, but a chocker cable or rigging strap may be quicker/cheaper to obtain.

    Just throwing that out there. :)

    I've got one of those too - with an extra lever, called a log jack. It works on smaller logs, but if the log is too large there just isn't enough leverage to get the log up on the jack so it isn't laying on the ground when I cut it into rounds.

    But I use the tongs to lift firewood rounds. I cut up the logs into rounds and stack the rounds. Then later I split the rounds when I need firewood. It is easier to move and stack the rounds than to move and stack split firewood - IMO.
