Yep. From the days of open wire telephone. Allowed for a mid-span transition.

Found it laying in the bush about 12 years ago, been hanging on the wall in the shop since.

What interesting item have others here found?

I probably should have put this in the food thread. Its a food prep tool and no one seems to know what it is. I don't either!

I dunno either, but it'd be the bee's knees for when you want to square off the ends of two weenies in one shot.

I've been a hobbyist cook for a very long time and have never seen one of those.

An old chef friend from Brooklyn says it's a 1950s era meat tenderizer.

On the item itself it says "case spew or spaw bracket"

Can't read the top.

I dunno.

It looks like it has two different track spreads judging by the roller's different spacing.

Looks like a good double hotdog holder. Put two in there, hold the handle and eat both

I don't know about you but that has the opposite of a tenderizing effect for me.
