Need Help ID this...


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone could help me ID this, and what is was used for? :shrug: It was in an area that was active in the early 1900's. The small can spun perfectly on the wire when turned. Just curious if anyone else has seen anything like this?

Hi Dave,

Could be that it is an early version of a rodent trap. Fill the big can with water, then spread your bait on the can on the wire. Mouse crawls out to the can with the bait, can spins on the wire and the mouse gets to tread water (for a little while..) beer.gif

Hi Mike,
