  1. Thanks again for the help. I'm going to try the de-rusting. I'll post a pic when I get it cleaned up.
  2. Thanks for the help everyone. I never considered a leather working tool. I looked pics of wad cutters and found a modern one that looks just like it. Now what would be the best way to clean this up without ruining the fine crosshatch pattern on the back?
  3. The two pics are of the same tool, front and back side. Best guess on the house was early 1900s say around 1910 and it's near Greenville SC. The only major industry that I know of around here is, and has been, textiles. Yes the hole goes through to the end where it's about 3/16". I was trying to get the crosshatch design on the back of it.
  4. I found this in a wall of an old house that was being restored. Can someone please tell me what it is? It looks kind of like a nail set but I don't understand the hole in the end.
