Tool ID

I'm trying to identify a tool, I've heard a lot of guess on it but haven't been able to verify any of them. A photo of it can be seen half way down the page of the site below, it's number 1171:

Please let me know if you recognize it.

Re: Tool ID

Can you be a little more specific? Each tool submission is numbered, what's the number of the tool you're referring to?

As mentioned in my original post, number 1171.

Thanks for taking a look.

Re: Tool ID

DOH!! Missed that, sorry. :o

I could only hazard a guess.

Re: Tool ID

Is the coil fixed on the end only? It looks as though the spring might be able to to be moved from the handle side toward the point. I assume there are to makers marks at all.

Re: Tool ID

I like the rest of the site. Very good colection and alot of fun figuring that stuff out. Highly recommend for everyone else to take a look.

The coil is fixed in place and doesn't move at all, and there is no maker's mark or text of any kind.

Best guesses that I've heard so far on it:
-used to clean mud or grease out of a hole - screw it in and then pull it out
-used to impart rotary motion to something

Re: Tool ID

It could also be used to remove some type of plug from a hole.

Re: Tool ID

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll do some research and see what I can find on them.
