This has to be one of the best/worst I've seen in a while. At least he's not asking a fortune for it. Does anyone know what it is? I do. I have one and use it regularly in the winter.

Is it a damper lever for a wood stove?

I hope the person who buys this crank handle has an easy starting T, or i can see some mighty big blisters in his future. :-)

I sent the seller a note. The person who answered said she found it in her late husband's treasures and someone told her it was for a Model T. She thanked me for pointing out it wasn't for a Model T. Twice! :-)

Fred, it's all in how you read it.

As I recall the tool in question was used on the old cook stoves. There was a square hole in the end of it that slid over a shaft that was attached to the grates in the bottom of the firebox. By mounting the tool on the shaft and shaking it back and forth the wood ashes could be shaken through the grates into a chamber under the grates. From there they were shoveled into a bucket and carried out. If you carried the ashes out and dumped into the outhouse hole it would help decay the "matter" that was built up in the hole. It was best to dump it when the hot coals had died out because Dad hated digging holes and building outhouses.

As well you should know the three main vegetables in the garden are lettuce, turnip and pea.

My mother-in-law would tell her kids they had to finish dinner. They had to eat every carrot and pea in the bowl.
Ba da dump.
