    Default A useful painting tool

    I'm gonna let you guess just what this is for...... But it is a tool for use in the process of painting. it would not be wrong for it to have a handle, but it is not required.

    I made it out of scrap stuff, so deductions from any discoloration etc may be very wrong, the scrap was dirty and had various color crud on it.

    Judging from the angle of the bolt, it would appear that when opened, it would clamp just about right on a paintbrush handle. It would be handy for a slightly extended reach, and it would let you put the paintbrush down without paint getting on everything.

    I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

    My first thought was something to keep a door open while youre painting it, clips on to the door and smacks against the fram, keeps you from locking yourself in after removing the knob

    Then i remembered that not everybody is as stupid as me

    Used for controlling the paint line when painting in corners or against trim, or other places that you don't want painted. The RH end clamps onto a piece of thin metal (sheet metal, saw blade, etc.) to use as an edger.

    It's for squeezing excess paint out of small paint brushes, made by the Over-Specialized Tool Division of J Tiers Inc.
