Topic tags/keywords: question

I bought a plate biscuit joiner at an estate sale and this was in the case. I am almost certain it is not part joiner as it appears to be an air valve type mechanism and there is nothing referencing it on Dewalt’s website.

So I think I have something that the old owner left in the case. Anyone know what it is for? Anyone want it?

Looks like a fire piston used for starting a fire in a survival situation. could be wrong and am probably wrong., but they are cool anyways.

Might be a control valve. Push in to activate another tool, via an air line? Push in=”ON”, allow it to return=”OFF” sort of thing. Looks like an air line hook up point near the plunger. Might be used to control a clamp powered by air? Either to clamp or un-clamp, push the plunger in?

I’ll buy air valve for air clamps theory, it has a few rubber seals inside it. Are these expensive? Or anyone near Sunnyvale, CA want it?
