You are so close Cathy but not quite there.... I know what you are thinking about but that's not it.

Gloria has it. That's exactly what it is. Sorry Cathy but I think you will be able to see how you weren't quite there.
Next one?

Ah, I thought of that too but then thought that the handle wasn't long enough.

A body scrubber that is used in the shower or bath, or something that was used for your recent pedicure Stanley, maybe to remove dry skin.

Sorry Love, that's not it. I can see why you would think that. Perhaps I should have pointed out it's about 2" across.

Another one bites the dust. Wendy is right and China knew it as well. It's a new mantle for a Tilley Lamp (or any other place a mantle is needed.) They are a soft fabric when you buy them but are impregnated with a fireproof compound and when you install them and light them a minor miracle occurs and they flare up and transform into the fireproof incandescent mantle you were after.

Bugger.... It's close enough Gloria, it's a pricker for clearing any sort of jet like that. I shall have to think of another one now.....

Don't know, just speaking thoughts aloud.
Hold it in left hand, hit with hammer and chisel something, looks very old.

I don't know what size it is but I guess it would be useful if you wanted to dismantle a brick wall! Knock it into the mortar gaps and lever it back and forth to separate the bricks.

It is so heavily made that it looks like it has a specific purpose, not just using it as a general purpose chisel. Something to do with railway tracks? Knocking out the spring clips that hold the line to the sleeper? I'm making this up as I go along... :biggrin2:

You're all getting there, too heavy and blunt for use as a chisel. So what can it be?

The iron part looks like a toe tread. Do you put the wooden shaft into a pre-drilled hole and use this as step, for example in drainage inspection chambers?

Sorry China but no. Stick with the concept of a blunt chisel. Where would that come in handy?
