  • VintageTool changed the title to What is this?

  I have large collection of doo hicky's.  It's a fun and facinating hobby in a way.  They are everywhere once you learn what to look for.  I learned to put a size limit on them.  You can get overloaded/overwhelmed.

I'd guess it is an edge scribe. Probably for woodworking.

The pointed end looks to be bent and twisted up... I would guess that the flat piece that has a point to it was the adjustable end used to scribe, and the pointed end would have been the hook that goes over the edge... before it was... um... modified.

It doesn't look to have a very wide range, I'd guess to measure and scribe along the thickness of a board for joinery work?
