ELeBlanc

Mystery tool? Looks like an ice pick? Help...

Its all metal about 8 inches long. Looks like an ice pick that is missing the hook part.

Someone suggested (or guessed) that it was for stretching out holes for lacing. It came from a Harness Shop.

thanks in advance - Techexchange

Could be some form of stuffing thing for pushing stuffing into something like a horse collar.

It was made/welded by the user of the device for something- I picture something that was sewn or stitched inside out that needed prodding to reverse it afterwards.

Or it's a tent stake.... :rolleyes:

First post was for fun, but I made one of those for metal detecting.  Some people use a screw driver.

Official opinion....

It's a thing, for doing something to another thing.  

And unless someone has one, or has seen one in action, the uses border on limitless.   Sorry I can't be more explicit, or helpful.

Maybe to fill saddles when they are worn out.

It's a T-bar. I'm sure of it.

You might be right. I've never made a saddle but it might be for nails up under the cantle. I watched a video by Don Gonzales on hammers and he did have a very small hammer. "Shrug"

I have seen a tool similar, but with a bit of a hook on the end.   It had something to do with lasts.   Maybe to help yoik a last out its stand.

Or possibly to remove boy scouts from horses hooves (Swiss army knife joke).
