What was this tool used for?

Postby Dan Stuckey » Tue Aug 02, 2022 12:58 pm

Anyone have any idea what this old tool might have been used for? Fairly old, the guy that had owned was a baker years ago. Has several small nails on the one end. I thought maybe something for pulling raw wool but think the nails are too short.

I have seen that tool at some shows. It was weavers that were using the tool to pull the wool loose or to clean the wool.

We used something very close to that when doing large animal taxidermy work called a hide stretcher. They make newer styles now but this was the old school type. Like said here I've also seen a tool like this used by weavers working with wool and other materials.
