How to Use

Simply position THE MINGO at the beginning of your log or other surface to be marked. While holding the easy to grip handle, roll the notched wheel of the tool down the length of the log. As you roll it, the device clearly marks the log at the precise measured increments with an easy to see paint mark. 

It is a quick and easy method of marking your log so it can be effectively cut to the desired lengths resulting in more uniform and efficient yields of firewood. 

This gives you firewood that fits in your stove better and burns more efficiently.
