Bear Trap

Bear Trap

Description:

The bear trap is in fairly good shape with average signs of wear; some degree of rust is present on the center piece (by which the bear sets the trap off when he steps on it). There looks to be an old maker's name of some sort. Arvin Starks & George Bikadi found it in the McKenzie Basin in 1957 while hunting. Believed to have belonged to Oscar Johnson. [update 2013]: Bob Menzel believes the type of trap to be "Newhouse" brand based on the hinges (Aug 2013).

Large Metal Block

Large Metal Block

Description:

This large steel block (pulley) is rusted and made of metal. There is a U-shaped piece of metal at the top of this block which is attached to two pieces of semi heart shaped metal by two pins (one on each end of the U). Near the bottom of the two semi-heart shaped pieces of metal are two octagonal holes (one in each piece of metal). There is an axle put through the holes which hold the pulley between the two pieces of metal and let it turn freely. The metal is in poor condition and bears inscription [barely visible], "Rope master K No. 110R Patents Pending". History: the block dates possibly from the time of Andy Devine (World War II period or later). Recently found by 11 year old Brent when he was looking for mushrooms up the Blackwater road above Oberson's.
