    What is it?

    Ok, So here's something I put together. Little piece of scrap metal, chunk of firewood and about 5 minutes on the lathe.

    It's ugly, but it does it's job wonderfully.

    Any ideas on what it's used for?

    I think the real question is where is it? Looks like you forgot to attach the picture.

    My guess is one of those old can openers that you find on the Swiss army knives.
    cheers

    I more for a tool to do some sort of shaping work (beading?). The white part looks like a UMH cushion to hit with a hammer. Thing is that this would be awfully free form where a beading plane would make more sense. So, what, exactly it is for, I haven't a clue.
