    That's what I first thought of when I saw it. I had to get it because I figured it would interest you guys if nothing else.

    I have no idea of the origins of that tool, but your avatar is most excellent.

    In a way that thing reminds me of a spanner we use in here to replace the 25 kgs. propane/butane gas bottles for the households.

    That is exactly what it is and just because it is rusty does not, necessarily, deserve the canotation "grandpa." :p My grandfather would never let anything that he considered worthy of his ownership to inexorably rust to the blatantly despicable depths of that implement.:D

    I didn't mean to refer to the tool as being misused under the care of a grandpa. I meant the title as "grandpa to pocket tools" because the rust made it look as if it were older than the current generation.

    It's all good. O and an interesting fact. These two tools were bought at the estate sale of Elvis's dentist.

    That's it then! It's a "tooth wrench" used on Elvis (value just shot up astronomically)! ;)

    I wish! Who wants a tool that touched the hand that was responsible for Elvis's teeth? I'll start the bidding at $10,000. ;)

    My customary fee will apply of course (never trust a banker; always trying to get your money). :eek:
