Pump Augers / Pipe Auger / Pod Augers These were purchased by the collector from Iron Horse auctions back in the 80's. The collector was quite proud of them. There are 8 different versions or sizes of these large, heavy, and rare auger drills.Several have side mounted cutters attached that could be sharpened or replaced. There is no extension handle.
These were mostly used by early settlers to make water pipes before the time of iron pipes. You can read about the process on the internet using a Google search. I was reading one story where the early California settlers used a set of these to bring down the largest of the virgin Redwoods or Sequoias down by Calaveras back in the early days when they could not think of any other way to bring down a 300+ ft. tall tree that was over 25' in Dia. It took them 20 some days to destroy what had taken 2,000 or more years to grow, just so they could say they did it. Too much time on their hands. All appear to be usable. Nice and different!!
