Here's another thing from what's now my (pipe organ) "voicing tools" box, simply because I had it out this morning and it ended up still in my pants pocket right now, thus was handy for the pics. ;-) Shown with a US quarter coin for size reference, it's about 4" long.
It is otherwise what's known as a 'countersink' bit, with its one square/tapered shank end it was obviously intended to be used in a hand crank driven 'brace' sorta drill, to allow flathead wood screws to be drawn down neatly and properly. Turns out, after however many years since it was actually made (I have no idea?) it's also a really good thing for me to use (once in awhile) to do specific things to individual organ pipes (by itself, by hand, no other attachment required) to help them to sound correctly. :-) I also don't recall at the moment where in the world I first got it, but it remains one of those tools in my voicing box I keep a close eye on...if somebody else tries to appropriate it y'all better d*mn well bet I'll go chase it back down again... <LOLOL>
