Ok.. I’m baffled, sorta, about what exactly these two little tools are. Dunno how they even came to be in my toolbox. anyway… here we go:
although hard to see perhaps in the photo, the name embossed into this is “QUIK-SCRAPE”. Now, to describe, those little wheels turn freely, it’s cast aluminum, and there is a deadly sharp little beveled scraper on the end. I thought, maybe removing putty from a bedded window glass, but when I actually got a chance to try it, well, it didn’t work so well for that purpose. Any idea?
Now, #2: This is a “Sandvik #123” hmm, okay, no prob, go straight ot Google, but all the hits were for carbide tool holders, presumably for machine tool processing, and definitely for metal work. This item is simply .050” steel pressed over on itself, with two notches cut into the fold. The notches are marked ‘Summer’ and ‘Winter’ and of course the obligatory French markings for Canada on the other side.
Any idea? Please, no guesses that the item is a Mitutoyo scale…guffaw, guffaw. This Sandvik item, might it be one small part of something bigger? Any guidance appreciated!
