Nygren clue 3

The third item of the Nygren saga was puzzling as multiple people guessed different things.

Nicole Hosette of the South Dakota Historical Society guessed that the item is a windmill shut off handle for a water pump. Marlin Perks out of Stockville agreed, saying it could be a lever to control the break on a windmill.

Larry Martin out of Valparaiso said that he believes the pipe to be an “inside pipe tightener” for when you can’t tighten the pipe from the outside.

If you have any items lying around the farm and have been curious as to what they are, be sure to submit them with a bit of information about yourself and the item to jager.robinson@lee.net.
