This tool at Smith’s Tavern is a mystery. It is made entirely of brass, which side is up or down is uncertain as both ends having different type of hanging hooks. It is composed of a tube connected to a round cylinder that has a sliding round port cover. Could it be a type of scale?
If anyone knows anything about this particular tool, please email the Historical Society with this much-needed information.
