Mystery Tool

| May 2005

For many years, my tool collection has included this unusual tool. I have not found it in any tool book, and the large membership of our Richmond Antique Tool Society can't identify it. The straight point is made with four sides to the point, and the large end is a socket, which fits something with five faces. Can any Gas Engine Magazine readers identify this piece? There are no names or numbers on it.
