What-is-it question CCIV


I don't think this one will last long, but we'll see.

A jeweller's tool from 1905, but what was it's use?

Being a jeweller, they are still in use today. Initials R.C.

Hi Jim,

I knew you would know the answer.

Let's see if anyone else gets it.

Just a guess, is it some sort of cutting tool for making watch parts?

Hi Martin,

You are correct as far as the cutting operation, but not about the subject.

I like that ratcheting lever better than the modern ones with direct rotati0n blade. it would be easier on everyone's fingers.
