I love that you found it outside the thrift store. free stuff is always the best. Whatever it is, it's pretty cool looking :o)
It's one of those things I call a "picker upper" not because you picked it up, hehe, but because of the handle. You squeeze it, and I believe it clamps down on something, it looks like the old car battery kind, but because my husband just used one, I think it's from an old industrial light, they go on the end, so you can clamp it onto part of the car etc. Could be wrong, been so many times, xxx
It reminds me of old parts of overland electricity - no matter ... looks great!!! ;)
I LOVE these little rusty treasures...lucky you :) PS...I think maybe this comment is going to go through. Thanks for the tip on FB! Chat soon, Laurel
I think it's one of the science lab tools that picks up beakers...at least that's what it looks like
How long is it?
I thought it was a striker for a welding torch, but welder husband says it isn't that.
I don't know either but I do like that you added the white faucet handle to it.
what about an ice tongs
They are used to hold the fish's mouth open so you can remove the hook.
Definitely a test tube holder that is awesome old and rusty.
