I don't have a clue what this tool was made to do. It is too big for a cabbage stomper to make sauerkraut. Maybe a poo stomper for an outhouse. HeHe
Over all length is 93", and head is 4" diameter.

My grandfather had something that looked similar. The large end was a little bigger. His was used as a maul. He wasn't about to hit his wedges with anything steel. He didn't want the end of his wedges mushrooming.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Could be a cannon tamper made back during the 1976 Bi-Centennial Era. I used to come across and LOT of modern reproduction stuff from that era in the gun shop.

Don't know, but if you're on the fence between kraut tamper or poo tamper, I think you'd want to make up your mind and go one way or the other. LOL

Do a search for cannon ramrod. There are several that look a lot like this.

That is an interesting thought. Something that I never considered.

Did Clinton/Sullivan have artillery? Could it be that old?

My first thought was a cannon tamper, made out of wood so no sparks generated from the action.

Sauerkraut packer. Mom had one to pack kraut into the large crocks. Never did like kraut much.

I Have crocks from 5 Gal. to 30gal. The handle is 93" long. Most ceilings were not that tall when this tamper was made and there is no way it would work. We have cabbage stompers and they are only 4' long for the bigger crocks. Loren

I'm agreeing with a post hole tomper.
Here is mine I made. It is just under 72" long.

either a pole tamper or a duct rodder for utility company. Probably the former.

Utility workers used to hand dig holes for poles, and they had super long tampers for filling the holes.

I have pole hole spoons and digging bars. The bars had a chisel point on one end and a tamping foot about 3x4" on the other end. I don't think by the time linemen were putting up power poles that a wooden tamper would have been used, but I could see it being made and used by a farmer to set gate and barnyard posts.

Maybe some kind of crude pipe plunger. If you use it in an outhouse it could double as a weapon to wack critters, or clear spider webs. The last thing I want is a huge spider dangling in my face in the middle of the night. :shock:
