This tool at Smith’s Tavern is a wooden clothes wringer. It is of rudimentary construction with no manufacturer’s markings. The device consists of a large wooden ribbed drum and two fixed poles - it is operated by turning the “Z” shaped crank handle that utilizes two springs on both sides of the device. Clothes were fed into the device between the drum and poles which would squeeze dry the clothes.
