CONGRATULATIONS TO FRITZIE, a.k.a. SPYDER GIRL... WITH THE CORRECT ANSWER OF A STEAM LOCOMOTIVES TRANSMISSION KEY. ALL STEAM ENGINES HAD FORWARD, REVERSE, AND NEUTRAL. THE ENGINEER WOULD INSERT THE KEY AND TURN IT RIGHT FOR FORWARD, LEFT FOR REVERSE, AND NEUTRAL WAS STRAIGHT UP. WHEN THE ENGINE WAS BEING USED THERE WERE TIMES THE TRAIN HAD TO STOP AT STATIONS, AND STOCK YARDS. SOMETIMES THE ENGINEER HAD TO TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS AWAY FROM THE TRAIN AND HE COULD LOCK IT NEUTRAL SO NO ONE COULD STEAL THE TRAIN. FORWARD AND REVERSE WERE USED FOR TRAVELING AND HITCHING. ALSO, IN CASE OF A WILD WEST TRAIN ROBBERY THE ENGINEER COULD NEUTRALIZE THE TRAIN AND HAD HIDEY HOLES TO SECURE THE KEY SO THE ROBBERS COULDNT TAKE THE TRAIN.
TODAYS DEVICE WAS PATENTED IN THE 1890'S, AND WAS USED IN MANY BUSINESS' DURING THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION. IT IS APROX 12 INCHES LONG. TYPES OF THIS TOOL ARE STILL USED TODAY.
WHAT IS IT ???

My wife says that it's something used to bend pipe. So, I guess it's a pipe bender.

Looks like a wire stripper.

For turning taps on and off, that are really hot, so you can't touch them..... but thats what gloves are for, i should have thought about this a bit more.
