Anyone have an idea what this thing is?  Took a picture on a playing card for size perspective.  Maybe some type of pound in conduit hanger?IMG_0770.thumb.jpeg.3c84e066586a10a9b5df2490c63124b2.jpeg

Post maul. Used to be one on every farm. Most were 16 pounders.

Yep. Didn’t have them around here but that’s what it is. All the holes here were dug vs pounded as far as I can tell. No hedge posts straight enough to pound I guess 😊

Indeed. We have several of those. From 10 up to 16lb. A few have pockets in the face from someone pounding T posts in. I've only used them on cedar posts. A weekend of fencing with them can wear a fella out too. It was a good buy at $20. I've seen them going for as high as $75 around here.

The driver isn’t chipped much. The shovels don’t have much wear on the edges or handles however he did like to grind that ax ….a little wonky , easy fix.

I used this homemade pry bar to install the fwa driveshaft in a neighbors tractor. I couldn't get a bigger bar in there to hold up the end and align t splines into the differential.

Can anybody identify what it's made from?

It’s hard to say, it like 3/8 round stock, and I would guess you chose something that was tough to start with. I am going to guess a rod from a camper shell door lock??

Found this in a shed we’re tearing down. Can’t find anything on the inter web from the number.

Is this the handle to a stove to, "Shake Your Grates".

I'm not certain that's a wrench. If it is, it isn't one I've seen before.

I thought that, but what’s the square hole for, flue adjuster?

The stove comment got me thinking. The square end could fit end of shaft of rocker grates in a coal stove and the other end could be a lid lifter. Should be bent a little different for that and lid end should be flatter and have a little hook. So don't think so.

Well, a square nut. I have a bunch of old cast iron wrenches with square holes. But still, that other end gives me pause.

Picked up this shear today. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a small one. It does 1/8”-3/8”. Most of of the ones I have seen were larger.

Maybe wood stove lids are different than a coal stove.  I think it looks like I could lift a stove lid with it.

If you turned it over I reckon it would work with stove lids I've seen (and lived with, including cutting the wood)
