    Default Tool ID

    I'm trying to identify a tool, I've heard a lot of guess on it but haven't been able to verify any of them. A photo of it can be seen half way down the page of the site below, it's number 1171:

    Please let me know if you recognize it.

    Can you be a little more specific? Each tool submission is numbered, what's the number of the tool you're referring to?

    Is the coil fixed on the end only? It looks as though the spring might be able to to be moved from the handle side toward the point. I assume there are to makers marks at all.

    The coil is fixed in place and doesn't move at all, and there is no maker's mark or text of any kind.

    Best guesses that I've heard so far on it:
    -used to clean mud or grease out of a hole - screw it in and then pull it out
    -used to impart rotary motion to something

    It could also be used to remove some type of plug from a hole.
