Hazard A Guess: Week of June 26, 2003.


Hello from Hazard.

No mail on Item No. 683, so we’ll feature it again this week. Does anyone care to hazard a guess as to its use?

Don Redman added his voice this week to Item No. 682 and moved the consensus on it to a fencing tool.

Redman believes it is a splicing tool for woven wire fence, used to wrap the horizontal fence wires when splicing two rolls of fenced together, or when wrapping the wire on an end post.

“The hook is put over one horizontal wire and the other wire is placed in the notch and then the tool is twisted around the wire, causing a nice, tight wrap for the splice,” Redman writes.

It’s hard to know for sure from the photograph, he admits, but he owns several styles of fence splicing tools and the look of this tool fits the bill.

Take another look at 683, and send your responses to: Hazard a Guess, P.O. Box 38, Salem, OH 44460, or via e-mail to: editorial@farmanddairy.com.
