Default Anyone know what this is?

Found by a friend in his yard. The hole where the threads are does not go all the way through.

Hhmm!
Maybe? The screw on the other end seems odd.

Lawn sprinkler? Holes around fluted piece? Garden hose threads?

Just a guess here.. it looks like a fluted reamer..self tapped into a water pipe..the screw in the end to release trapped air..Iím not a plumber..and Iíve never seen such a gizmo..but I ask myself what makes sense and this guess is my only thought.. I will follow this thread in hope someone actually knows the answer..

After looking more closely I see what youíre talking about..looks like a hole in the pipe and possibly a wooden plug...looks like a tapered reamer..but the screw on the end might be some custom alteration? Home made field repair bleeder valve is all I can guess???

Iím wondering if you hit the screw with rust breaker, if you could back it out and see if there is a hole all the way through..if there is, then it could be a home made bleeder valve..emphasis on ďcouldĒ be...is there a wooden plug? As was asked previously...Iím curious to know...definitely an intriguing find..
