Description : Large log-boring auger with a thicker pointed end.
Fonctions : Elbridge R. G. Jewett Junior tells the story of his grandfather and namesake, Elbridge E. Jewett Senior as recited to him by his father E. Lincoln when Elbridge was a boy. "In the 1930's Grandfather Elbridge, a blacksmith, designed and built an auger to solve a serious water shortage on the family property in Jewett's Mills". Elbridge Sr (1885-1959) and his sons Lincoln (1912-2003) and M. Pearson (1925-2000) spent three summer months building a wooden aqueduct about 3000 feet up the hill from the original pre-dam location, through fields and trees, at the site of a large active spring. They cut fir trees, bored holes down through the centre lenght of the 10 foot logs with the auger, used 2 ft. steel dowels to join the logs together, dug trenches to bury the waterline and carry water downhill to the Jewett homes and a farm. To this day the aqueduct supplies excellent water to the two original homes (#21 and #31 on Route 615), via 1 inch plastic pipe replaced in the 1960's. In the 1930's, long before the dam was built, the three Jewett men used a bucksaw, shovels, and hired a teamster Ivan Haines haul logs using Elbridge's horses. There were no chainsaws or backhoes. The donor spent most of his life in Jewett's Mills, New Brunswick and as of January 2020 now lives in Fredericton, New Brunswick.
