"What's It" Basic Rules Reminder

 

For a full run down on this project and rules please go to: "The Patriot Woodworker and MWTCA "What's It" project"

  • Only Patriot Woodworker Members are eligible to participate and receive the award.
  • The MWTCA only accepts a verified source to support your answer, so one should be submitted with your answer, such as a patent, catalog entry, tool book reference, or a respectable website on the subject. Do not let these requirements prevent you from having fun and submitting educated answers on the subject without verification, we can worry about references later. All answers are welcome, as well as healthy debates regarding "What's It".
  • If a verified and referenced answer is not arrived at by the end of each month's "What's It" project, a random draw will be performed for a "One Year MWTCA Club Membership".
  • Only Patriot Woodworker's who participate in this "What's It" topic will be included in the random draw.

 

Additional What's It Rules

  • Unless you are completely sure what this item is, please avoid "definitive statements" that appear that you are without a doubt claiming that you know what the item is. For example stating, "this item is called a "widget xx" used for "insert purpose here". If you are making a definitive statement you must accompany your statement with evidence or proof from a secondary source.
  • An example of acceptable statements within the realm of having fun and educated guesses would be something like this, "I believe it could be", or "It appears it's made for this or that", etc etc etc...

 

Ok ladies and gentlemen, we now have our "What's it" live and ready!

Maybe just a gauge, to let you know what size bolt and/or nut to use....and what size wrench to grab.....Like when one was replacing broken boiler plate bolts when doing a service call at a house.  Can also use the "rounds" to line up the bolt holes.

It looks a sizing tool for a manufacturing process.You insert the hex end in a base unit hex cavity, until you have a proper size fit and then pull a top part down on it. Then turn the top of this tool until you have a proper distance between the two. Different sizes of product require distances.

It's a plug remover for removing plugs.  Used with a pipe wrench and extender for removing caps off pipes, steam plugs,sewer plugs, large boiler plugs. Don't forget the torch to heat it up.

 

Never saw a plug that was deep enough to accommodate the steps of this tool for the larger sizes.
