Mystery Tool 3


Now for the one that has the entire club stumped. If you pull the handle, a cam forces down a piece of metal into the slot above the nearest end of the clamp.

It will shear wood (we had some to hand) at 12mm lengths. There doesn't appear to be a way to change this length.

Now, the mechanism is very well built and would stand up to a lot of usage. But for what?

It's quite funny to see people pick the thing up and grandly announce, "I know what it's for..." before then stumbling and realising they don't. This has happened several times.

So, any suggestions in Blogland?
