Ah yes, a winged screw - is "wingnut" also used for the screw rather than only for nuts (botanical)?

Nice detail in the shot! I would have tried to place the screw a bit more in the center of the image, though...

I have to disagree with Thkn. That is a wing nut. The screw is a separate piece.

It looks like that hacksaw has been around the barn a few times.

Ok then thnkn and selvin, here's the other shot I took of it:

I thought the first one gave it more context.

Thanks Cal for setting thnkn straight. I looked round my husband's workshop and there were wingnuts on several items, including the air compressor, the tiny vice and magnifying set used for very fine work (one of the boys used it as an aid for his assignments when studying electronics at High School), accessories for his Triton workbench ....

This saw was used specifically as a meat saw when we killed and butchered our own meat. The saw commonly known to us as a hacksaw has very fine teeth. Either way, yes Cal, it has seen many years of use but now just hangs in the wood shed in disuse.

Thanks everyone for looking and commenting.

Bernice

I guess I'll never forget that in english this is a "nut". See here also: Things with wings - winged lock(?)

Again - I am very sorry if I caused any confusion, at times it's hard to explain what you mean in another language, especially if you got more words in your native language for the same word in the target language.

I hope we can close that "nut chapter" now.

Th.
