Can you identify this antique hand tool?

Item No. 1173

Hello from Hazard!
We had one more guess come in from Item No. 1173. Steve Burkhart, Woodsfield, Ohio, said it is a pig snout cutter. He said the item appears to have a fluted cutter blade.
Kathy Clossin submitted the item.

Item No. 1175
Item No. 1175

Rollin Kinsey, Akron, agrees with the folks last week who said Item No. 1175 is a screw on a wire connector.
It was submitted by Charlie Wilson, of North Canton, Ohio.



Item No. 1176

Milton Schweitzer, Spartansburg, Pennsylvania, said Item No. 1176 is a porcelain coffee filter for an old coffee pot.
Dean Evans submitted the item and said a friend found it in her mother’s house. Dean knew what the item was, and Milton is correct.


Item No. 1177

Moving along to Item No. 1177, submitted by Coiln Young Sr., of Cambridge, Ohio. These antique hand tools were found inside a wall of an old post and beam barn that Colin was rebuilding in 1989, in Fort Edward, New York. They are rustic cast iron with wooden handles.
