Hazard A Guess: Week of Feb. 26, 2009


Hello from Hazard!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the Hazards are so delightful…

Jeffrey Lehn of Baden, Pa., found Item No. 856 delightful because he knew how it was used: It’s a bearing scraper, used to remove high spots on Babbitt bearings used in older engines and machines.

Thanks to Les Howell of Beach City, Ohio, who shared the item with Hazard.
