Hello from Hazard!
We hope you didn’t pack all your sweaters away during those 70- and 80-degree days; we even heard the weatherman say the “S” word (snow) for April 22.
A couple of correct answers to Item No. 646 came in. We had identified it as an early automobile tire vulcanizer (patching kit). Thanks to these readers who knew what it was, too: G.A. Henderson, Williamstown, W.Va.; Tim Parke, Wattsburg, Pa.; and Bill Swanson, Butler, Pa.
The mailbag was empty of guesses on Item No. 647, so we’ll show it here again this week. The tool, shared by Jerry D. Miller of Middlefield, Ohio, measures about 7 inches long.
Do you know what it was used for? Send your answers to Hazard a Guess, P.O. Box 38, Salem, OH 44460; or via e-mail: email@example.com.
Until next week …
