      Tire patch press. Used when automobile inner tubes were repaired by applying a rubber patch which was covered with a shallow cup filled with flammable material which was ignited providing heat to vulcanize and fuse the rubber patch with the tube.

      I agree with UncleRon. For patching inner tubes on tyres. Quite common in the rural areas where I am located.

      I have 2 of those. One is made from steel, and another made of aluminum.
      They are for doing a hot patch on inner tubes on your tires. It always cost more to have it done at the gas station for this type, but they didn't come loose.
