A Miners Pry Bar

A Miners Pry Bar

A Miners Pry Bar.
This type of miners pry bar had many uses from levering coal and rocks from the coal face and headings to moving and aligning machinery etc. The majority of these bars were made from old rock boring drill rods though this example is a purpose made pry bar made from strengthened 1″ and a 1/4″ inch iron rod.

Made from iron. Size 51″ long x 1 1/4″ inches diameter.

Weight approximately 7kg.

This pry bar has a hole through at 5″ inches from the head (as seen above) for it to be locked onto a miners tool bar whilst underground. 

The working end (as seen right) has a taper for levering.
