Hello from Hazard!

Item No. 1138

Ed Homer, of Transfer, Pennsylvania, who submitted Item No. 1138, wrote and confirmed Jim Moffet was correct. The items are coopers tools (chime mauls) to drive or push down the metal rings (called chimes back then) on a wooden cask which is another name for a large barrel.
Homer also writes, “I like the story best, however, about driving earthworms to the surface.”
