Here's a "tool" that I'll bet lots have heard of it's action but don't know why it was used.

There was a time that the bellows was used to pump smoke into the rectum as a cure for several conditions. Hense the phrase "blowing smoke up your ass"



Some also believed that blowing tobacco smoke up a drowning victim's "exhaust pipe" could revive them. At one time they were supposedly standard equipment for lifeguards.

Today we've found that a kit like this isn't necessary to blow smoke up our asses, we have skilled politicians to do the job.

The gripping surface furthest from handle has a magnet embedded in it. I've been using it for removing circuit boards from etching solution... No requirement for a magnet in that use, so probably not the intended use.

What kind of specialty? I've had it for at least 15 years and am confident that I've been using it wrong the whole time. :thumbsup2:

I haven't read all the postings. I thought it was about putting real names with screen names.

Dude can hold a grudge. icon_eek

However, on that note, I expect that your Google search looked something like this: "what is this weird pliers-looking thingamabob that i found behind the old workbench in the back barn" and then wondered why you didn't get any good results. :ROFLMAO:
