Does anyone know what this is?? The only writing I can find on it is Beaver Made in USA
That Tool is a left-handed widget!! Just kidding, I have no idea
Looks like a can opener for 55 gal drum to me!! LOL Wonder what that is?
It is a can opener. You placed the cutting ring on the can top then squeezed down on the "S" shapped piece with a thump, until it stopped at the lower lip of the tops rim. This created the force to lock the opener in place.
Cyclops01 got it right, that's exactly what that is. Where did ya find that little treasure? That's pretty cool!!
Are you guys for sure thats what it is? I can't find any like it on the web, and the round wheel is not sharp it is has ridges on it.
When I first looked at it I thought it was a can opener as well but something just isnt right for it to be a can opener I cant put my finger on it but I dont think its a can opener.
After a brief search of 1 minute or so I had a hit on a Little Beaver can opener.
Maybe this is the original Big Beaver.
IM on a mission to find out!!!!
lol.... NONE of you are right (in the head).....
It is a ring cutter. Used in the emergency room and on ambulances.........
and to make you feel "really bad" even Seth knew what it is. He said "daddy you got one of those" and went and got it out of my jump kit.Leave it to a 5 year old
You're right, it's a ring cutter. I've got one that I used numerous times when I used to run on the squad. The cutting blade is replaceable. It's not a cheap tool and it should be stainless steel for sterile reasons. Saved many peoples' fingers with that tool!
How it works is you slide the pointed part under the ring and press down on the opposite end with your thumb. Then with the other hand you crank the wheel around while keeping pressure on it and voila', the ring can be removed. Usually works better with 2 cuts on opposite sides so it comes off in half. :0a26:
Well Ill be doggone by Goarge I think they have it..... LOL ITs not everyday a 5 yr. old shows a bunch of old men up way to go Seth.
I do stand corrected.
It does appear similar to a can opener I recall from my childhood but, after a closer look and checking out ring cutters, it is obvious that there thing is a ring cutter, without a doubt.
Now I'll be staying up nights worrying if maybe it's time for a brain scan. lol
And Chuck, who are you calling OLD? If I was twenty years younger, I'd... i'd... probably remember what I was going to do, and why.
Just think I thought it was a gispod for a 1910 hupmobile,LOL!!!
I think I've seen one of these a while back I think can't recall for sure.
But I'd put money on it being a medical tool for cutting off rings (if you injure your finger).
I'll double check with a buddy of mine who repairs medical instruments.
i thought it was a can opener !
At first glance, I thought it was a mechanism in the old hand crank ice cream makers. Then I read the posts and realized that it is a can opener. Thanks for sharing.
