    Antique Sewing Tool. Found in old tredle sewing machine. Item is 2 3/4" long x about 1/2"-3/4" wide. Wording on round part says "Boye Needle Company Chicago". On the arm leading up to the round part it says "Boye" "PAT DEC 1" and "Feb 11 08". I wrote the Boye Needle Company which is now Simplicity and they had no idea what it was. The US Patent site isn't much help when you have a name and date only of PAT Dec. 1. What is this and what was it used for? Thanks

      It's a sewing machine needle threader. That's what Grandma called it
