Object detail

6 x 2" (15.2 x 5.1cm)
Clark's patent makes "the barrel of the hollow-auger adjustable, and enabling the operator, though having but a single auger, to adapt the size of the tenon (within a reasonable limit) to the bore of his auger bits. It will thus be found of especial convenience where, as in the repairing of a wagon wheel, the wheelwright has to fit one or more tenons to a bore already made, and for which he may have no auger of the size adapted to form a suitable tenon." (Patent Number 28,653)
