Just a game

Postby Sailfish » Wed Nov 04, 2009 4:05 am

Figured i'd see if anyone likes doing these things to break up their work day.
I like antiquing and old stuff.
I'll post a pic of something I think is interesting, we'll see who gets it.

Today's object:

I don't have a name but I think it is for hole making for planting.
That's why they call it hunting and not getting

Looks like a bullet removal tool for my muzzle loader, only bigger and shorter and with a handle.  So I'm going with a shell removal tool for a civil war mortar.

No, no, no but good guesses.
Not yard or hunting related.
This example is from the 18 century.

It's called a Sugar Devil (I did err I meant to say 1800's not 18 century sorry for throwing you off)
Used to break up sugar in large casks, sometimes fruit as well.

And before they had "cubed" sugar you would use one of these to get a piece for your coffee. Sugar nippers. Sweet huh?
