Question Mystery Tool?

I found this thing in my dad's stuff in with clearly woodworking tools, but have no clue what it could be, maybe part of something? Any help?

more photos .....

You can't tell much from that view. Need a top, side, front, rear and an angled view to help.


The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I'll go with a hood latch for a 1929 DeSoto.

there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.

It is a ring groove cleaner. It is used to clean the carbon out of pistons when rebuilding an engine. I have one but it is easier to use a broken ring to clean the groove.

Anything is possible IF you don't know what you are talking about.

Thanks @BigJim, that sounds like something he would have used at some time or another.
