  • What's this shop-made tool used for?

    Approx 7"x 1.25" x o.5 in. Remains of red indicator fluid means it was made by a machinist, as were other things from his estate. Fork halves at end were made from cobalt steel as indicated by remains of markings I see but not visible in pix. Reverse side identical except you see the other ends of the 6 slot-head screws. What does it do?

    It could help with deburring the edge of that ruler shown in your pic.

    Looks to be a scraper of some sort, judging by the residue around the tip of the V, and might be useful for deburring cut sheet stock.

            Not sure its meant to be handheld. If I were to make a handle it sure wouldn't look like that.. Maybe held in a vice?. JR

                  Thanks, yes deburring an edge makes sense, especially in light of his use of cobalt steel for the vee.

                    It's a small child paddle - the end is used to twist your nose - sometimes even your ears if you were really bad - my dad had one

                      It is to take the sharp edge off freshly guillotined sheet metal. Just a touch on a fine grinding wheel restores the sharp edge. The clever feature is making the edges from two pieces of steel to produce a perfect "v".

                          I'd hazard a guess at its a setting guage for somthing, somthing round perpendicular to a face

                            Have to admit considerate would be nice for a change - but Grandpaw always said even abuse is at least some form of attention
