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.

  • D'oh! I forgot to look at the size. Rule #1, "Look at the dimensions."

    All correct, except I'm not sure about number 751.

    >754 looks like the tongs used by home canners to remove jars from hot water.

    It's for something smaller than canning jars, the jaws only open to a max of 2".

    It's not a cap crimper, but you're in the right ballpark.
