Here is an interesting thing that we picked up recently— and we realized that almost no one recognizes it. We’ll give you a few hints, but can you figure out what it is, and what it is for?
The object consists of three solid metal rods with raised bands around them, hinged such that that they can smoothly move with respect to one another, and that each of the rods can be turned freely.
In fact, you can fold it all the way over onto itself.
And here is a size reference, it fits nicely in your palm.
So, what is it? Please leave your educated guesses in the comments!
Update: Yes, it’s a wire straightening tool— read more about it here.
