Does anybody know what this little thing is or what it does? Recently found kicked under the bed in a motel room in a place that does seem to host lots of contractors and tradesmen.
It is about 2-1/8" long and 3/8" around and seems nicely made of a magnetic metal. Though it appears to consist of several different parts, nothing turns or moves in any way except for the tiny screw that can be removed. Its open end has 8 triangular slots machined into its edge, and closely fitted within that there is another likewise slotted part made of a different darker colored metal.
It sure LOOKS like it should have a purpose anyway, and I'd love to know what that purpose might be?!
