Hazard a Guess on this Champion Tool


Hello from Hazard!
We received three responses on Item No. 1056, but all three are different. Karen Woodruff says it looks like an old-style wood clamp, Bruce Baltzly thinks it might be a post for a pingpong table, and Henry Chupp, of Springboro, Pa., writes, “I don’t know how No. 1056 was used, but if I had four of them, I wouldn’t have made legs for our quilt frame last winter! The height seems to be about right, and they could be moved as the quilt gets rolled up,” so he’s wondering if it’s a quilt frame leg.
Alas, it may remain a mystery.

Item No. 1057 is one more from Richard Kind, of Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania, who writes it was found in a shed, but he doesn’t know how it was used. It is marked “Meadville PA. No. g2” on one side of the handle and “Champion Tool Co” on the other side of the handle.
