What is it?

I've been collecting unusual objects for quite a while, and several years ago I started posting them on this site as puzzles for visitors to figure out what they are. Most of the items are mine but a few belong to others, if you aren't interested in tools there are plenty of other type objects that have also been posted.

For first time visitors I recommend this archive for a wide variety of some of my best pieces.

    These are all correct.

    I haven't mentioned this in a while, but more guesses can be found in the newsgroups rec.puzzles, rec.woodworking, rec.crafts.metalworking and rec.antiques. Look for a thread with the title "What is it? LXXIX" as seen here:

  • 456. Looks like a tool I've seen for the removal of windshields in cars. Attaches to a blade with a handle to cut the seal

    This one is for a different purpose.
