Monroe Harbage and Bader also confirmed Item No. 1142 is a tool used by cobblers to stretch an area where there is a bunion to relieve pressure.

Hazard Item No. 1143Several readers knew Item No. 1143 as a pair holds together a headboard and footboard of a bed with the older style framing. Our thanks to Harbage; Joyce Hann; Jim Moffet; Randy Winland, Prospect, Ohio; Helen Hutchison, Evans, W.Va.; and Phil Maasz, of Smithville, Ohio, who all responded.
Bader picked up the item at a sale. Bader has been in the hospital for six weeks, and we wish him well!
