Topic tags/keywords: strange tool insert tool

Went to habitat restore today and found this tool. No idea what it is for but couldn’t resist buying it knowing that someone here would know what it is. It looks like it would inject something into something else. larry

It’s listed at the above address as a Speed Tufting Tool. I believe they are also called punch hooks.

Now that you have the right tool for it, you may want to become a hooker.

I don’t often kill people, but when I do, I use a rug tufting tool.

My understanding is that during the Civil War someone asked, Who are they? about some shady women that were living in camp. The reply was, Oh they’re Hooker’s, referring to them belonging to Union General Hooker. And I think it was Mother Dexter that said, that her boss said, she was the best hooker he ever had (at the rug factory)
