Hazard A Guess: Week of April 1, 2010


Hello from Hazard!


That’s what we heard on Item No. 887, which we’ve featured for the past two weeks. Silence.

Sorry, Charlie. Actually, apologies go to a friend of reader Nello Mungai of Hickory, Pa. Nello had taken the photograph to send to Hazard and help his friend discover what how it was used. I guess we failed him.

On to Item No. 888, then. Ron Anwander, of Vickery, Ohio, e-mailed the photograph and adds this description: “Two thin, metal layers, with holes like a sieve, joined together at the outside edge with space between the two pieces and has a wooden handle.”

“Whatever it is,” adds Anwander, “it was well used.”

It has the marking “ADE-O-MATIC Co.” and a patent number, but Anwander hasn’t been able to find any information about the company or this contraption.
