Geocache Description:


Lesjöfors är ett gammalt brukssamhälle som spelat en betydande roll i den svenska järnhanteringens historia. Redan 1642 fick svedjebrukande finnar privilegier att bygga en hytta strax väster om Lesjöfors, Dalkarlsjöhyttan. 1675 utfärdades privilegier för ett hammarbruk och kring det växte Lesjöfors upp. I Lesjöfors utvecklades den så kallade koltornsugnen, en ny typ av vällugn.
1852 påbörjades tillverkningen av stålfjädrar, en produkt som gjort Lesjöfors bruk välkänt och som idag är basen för brukets verksamhet.
Vid Lesjöfors museum finns en imponerande samling gamla och mindre gamla maskiner. Cachen som är en filmburk, är gömd i en av dem.

Lesjöfors is an old industrial community that has played an important role in Swedish iron industry. It dates back to 1642 when immigrant Finns got permission to set up a blast furnace in the vicinity. In 1675 the permission was granted for a hammer to be set up and around it the community of Lesjöfors was built up. Production of steel springs started in 1852 and has since been the speciality of the works.
At the museum an interesting collection of old and less old machines can be seen. The cache, a film canister, is hidden in one of them.
