Never Throw Anything Away

While attending an auction last year, I purchased a miscellaneous box of eight or nine old boxes of hog rings, hog ear notchers new in the box and other miscellaneous items along with this pointed tool. I had no idea what the pointed tool was. The sleeve (or vent tube) was not on the shafted tool. Not knowing what it was, I put the vent tube into my junk box along with other odds and ends. After reading the mystery tool article in the February 2017 issue of Farm Collector, I found the tube in my junk box while looking for something else. So don’t ever throw anything away!
