Searching for any info related to this Aluminium felling wedge I found in the woods today...
850E03CD-FAA8-42F2-B948-AD4FCC9F7E8F.jpeg Marked “Young” and “689”
I usually find the info with enough digging, but on rare occasions I need to call in the big guns.

thank you

Wooden and aluminum wedges are used more to hold the cut open to prevent pinching the bar than to cast the tree in any direction.

Well I might have found some info...
I found a “Young Iron works” in Seattle (My Home State)
they made logging tools including wedges since 1902 3CD1241B-19B1-42EC-8390-8F2860991FD0.jpeg
