Klampare

old swedish word for a person working at a sawmill sortihttps://digitaltmuseum.se/search/?aq=text%3A%22Klampare%22ng. This is a foreman or supervisor at a lumberyard, comparable to a log scaler. Since klampa in presentday usage commonly means tramping / stamping the old word comes across as slightly comic.
