Can anyone tell me what these are?

ribbit1072May 19, 2010

My son got these at a garage sale. The owners said they found them in a box in the basement of the house and had no idea what they were, but they had always used them to shoot bottle rockets out of. They are wooden and almost look like a handle of some sort. They are hollow. Can anyone tell me what these things are? Thanks in advance.

Bobbins....from a mill. Used to wind thread on in textile mills.
