Mid-West Tool Collectors Show Impressive Antiques

Homemade tools at the Mid-West Tool Collectors Assn. fall meeting show creativity and resourcefulness.

Snow Knocker
#12 is a snow knocker from the Moffet collection. Used to remove built-up snow from horses’ hooves, the tools were hung on a wagon, buggy, sleigh or sled. Small folding models were designed to fit in a pocket or saddle bag.
