    Another whatsit

    Given the colors, my guess is made by Red Devil, and therefore probably some kind of paint scraper. What say you?

    No, scale doesn't show well, but the teeth are way too big for a veneer saw, I think.

    Yuppers, I found one at a garage sale for a buck (had a blue handle though ) when I moved into my house...came in REAL handy as EVERY window was painted shut when we moved in.

    Also can be used to make deep cuts on your hand. DAMHIKT!!

    I believe that it was a Glassing compound removable tool.
