Do you love cool tool thingies?
I have to admit that I have a weakness for vintage tools of all kinds, and I think it might be because my mom and dad were always big DIYers.
I can remember them both working with all kinds of tools when I was a little girl, and now all those tools are vintage.
We weren’t raised with any boy/girl boundaries, which I have to say has been so helpful to me throughout my life. I was encouraged to use a hammer just as much as a sewing needle.
I still use a hammer often, but rarely a sewing needle. lol.
Every once in a while I’ll find a tool that I’ve never seen before.
Like this week’s 50 cent mystery item.
It’s a good weight for its size, and has a worn wooden handle.
As you can see it’s marked M Tools 280 Made in USA.
It measures about 5″ wide by 2 3/4″ deep by 3 1/4″ high, and it has a 1/2″ lip on one side.
It’s pretty worn so whatever it is it’s been doing its job for a long time.
I’m thinking the fact that I don’t know what it is probably means I don’t need it to function for its intended purpose.
I guess I’ll find that out for sure once I know what it is.
Call me crazy, but I always like to know the intended purpose of something before I think about repurposing it as something else.
So I’m really hoping someone can enlighten me. 🙂
What the heck is it? Any ideas?
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time…
keep on keepin’ on!
