This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
The advice from Uncrate.com is wise...just leave your wrench set in the toolbox and tackle your next handyman job with the Craftsman Figure Eight Wrench. Available in standard or metric varieties, each wrench can deal with eight common sizes. With four different fastener sizes on each end, you can deal with 6pt, 12pt, 4pt, spline, external torx, and partially rounded hex fasteners — all with a single tool.
