I have never seen one of these and my dad had never heard or seen one but knowing this crowd, I'm sure there might be someone who has seen or used one. Give it your best shot!

Tool for "setting" an anchor of some type. Looks like the anchor might be attached to it in the photo, ready to expand.

Nice find :D

You are all wrong so far. I bet Oops56 might know this one! Cuz, I figured you would have it for sure but I guess not. This is a highly specialized tool for a specific job. ;)

If it includes the piece it's standing on..it could be a test plug for plumbing that some Ohioan rinky-dinked together instead of what it's supposed to have on top... :roll:
