What is it?

Sat Feb 23, 2008 8:54 pm

Besides scrap metal! Found this in Bob while working out there this afternoon. Anybody ever see one? Does anyone have an idea what it is? Sorry, there are no Cub hats or mirror/basket/cupholders or calendars for the correct answer. I have no clue as to what it is either. So you can lie to me and I will believe you.

It is 18" long and made of aluminum. The flat end may have been to a point but looks to be broken now.

That's a rammer for ramming sand around a pattern in a flask to make a mold in a foundry operation.

Obviously I believe you. That being the case then I suspect the right end of this would have been blunt instead of tapered to a point.
