    What is the diameter of the circular part?
  2. Kitchenwareguy, 5 years ago
    the gizmo is at a friends house right now, so I will have to measure it later.
    Thanks for asking , I will get back to you.

    reminds me of a can opener (without a blade?) and the covers that go over sternos (heating/candle-type devices with an open flame)
  4. walksoftly walksoftly, 5 years ago
    I wondered if it fit an open can to seal it back up again.
  5. Hunter Hunter, 5 years ago
    good call walksoftly, does look like it would seal something...
  6. mrmajestic1 mrmajestic1, 5 years ago
    If this seals some item, maybe we are looking at a picture of the bottom?
  7. mrmajestic1 mrmajestic1, 5 years ago
    My first guess would have been a Sterno flame damper also.
  8. walksoftly walksoftly, 5 years ago
    Quick get an empty soup can so we can try it :)
  9. Kitchenwareguy, 5 years ago
    Walksoftly the wheel is roughly 2&1/2 inches in diameter.
    Someone just told me it as used to lift hot jars out of a bath for canning.

    Thanks to one and all.
  10. Kitchenwareguy, 5 years ago
    All bets are off.
    The person who told me it as used to take hot jars out of the bath for canning now admits that they have never seen one used and have never used one.
    Further help needed---------------please.

    Baby-food jar resealear!
  12. Kitchenwareguy, 5 years ago
    Are you 100% positive.
    Have you used one or seen one used?
    Thanks in advance
  13. Hunter Hunter, 5 years ago
    No, never, 0% positive, just making a guess! You're the only one with access to the thing, so you'll have to test it out and let us know ;)

    So now we have to wait for someone to have a baby to find out.
  15. Beautifuljunk, 5 years ago
    guessing it looks like a can opener that has a top to keep juice from
  16. Beautifuljunk, 5 years ago
    or maybe to lift hot cans of beans off the campfire

  17. AppyTX, 5 years ago
    I too think it is for covering and lifting hot cans. this is fun.
  18. AppyTX, 5 years ago
    Found on Ebay, fuel holder, sterno holder
  19. walksoftly walksoftly, 5 years ago
    Not the same as the picture on Ebay!

    Wick cutter and candle snuffer.
  21. pennydime pennydime, 5 years ago
    I believe this one is to lift hot can such as STERNO fuel.
  22. CasevilleAntiques, 5 years ago
    Maybe it's an old clothes pin of some sort...I have plastic ones that look very similiar
  23. Kitchenwareguy, 5 years ago
    Do you have a picture of your plastic clothes pin?
