Mystery Tool!

Ok, I'm sure there's a bunch out there who are saying "Oh, yeah! Don't you know what that is, Mr. Knowitall Printer Guy??" And I'll say "No. I don't. Not a clue."

Anyone care to enlighten me? Here's a little help: It showed up with donations to the Settlement Print Shop. Along with Brayer holders without rollers, square alloy recepticals with wooden handles, which at first I thought to melt metal in, but no, they are not sealed. Also a bunch of numbering heads and a box full of challenge iron wedge quoins and keys.

So, any ideas?

Here are some close ups.

Inquiring minds want to know. :>)

Good Providence in your archeological endeavours!

  1. It looks a lot like a stack paper counter.

    you could take a stack of paper, measure the thickness, then use that sharp hook to grab (nearly) equal stacks again and again from your main pile...

    it doesn't quite add up though - some things that should be adjustable on it aren't.

    Maybe that's a start though.
