We have had some interesting suggestions as to what this wood and brass tool is used for.
- A comb for cleaning and smoothing pigs bristles ahead of showing
- A twin handled fire hydrant on/off wrench
- Japanese massager
- Fake worm hole maker used by antique restorers
Actually this tool is/was used by a baker for stamping out circular biscuits with holes like rich tea or digestives.
Wish they still made biscuits the size used in this tool i.e. 1/2 inch thick and 3 1/2 diameter.
