Item # 17-015

Vintage improvised hand rasp for wood. Probably from the late 1930's or perhaps earlier.

Assessment based on the carriage bolts and the screws holding the rasp in place. The carriage bolts appear to me to be "pre-modern" as they seem a little more "beefy". The screw slot on one of the screws holding the rasp in place seems to be hand-cut as the slot is off center which would make that screw at least into the mid-1800's time frame. Of course, an old screw that was handy might have been used so it proves little. The rasp blade itself is likely a rasp for use in a mechanical device as I have seen a number of them in old hardware stores and being sold at country auctions in tool lots. I have not been able to trace them to their typical use.

Anyway, this is a very nice old wood rasp, unique for it's one-of-a-kind improvisation with nice old patina. A nice display item for the tool enthusiast.

Size is 17 1/2 inches long by 1 1/2 inches wide by 2 3/4 inches high to top of handle bar.
