If it has a square hole threw it, with wing nut screws to lock the bar placed into the hole, it could be a handle for a T-auger bit set.
As to what it's worth, I wouldn't have any idea.

I sent a link of this thread to my blacksmithing friend, who finds and repairs old tools and he thinks I could be right. That it's a handle for T-auger bits.
He says it might be worth $20-$30 or so.
Nice find!

Cool thanks

I cleaned it up a little and the chestnut handles look real good so I would say it is at least 100 yrs old.  it will look good on the wall with some of my other vintage tools

I think that might be Millers Falls, Mass USA??? What do you think Jim?  Millers Falls had a plant in western Mass as far as I can remember.

I believe Millers Falls tool company started in Millers Fall, Mass, USA, but I could be wrong, but I know they did have a tool factory in Millers Falls, Mass.
It would be fun to find it listed in an old tool catalog and see how much it went for brand new.
