    Hmm! I always heard my Appalachian relatives refer to one of those a "Bakersfield Hemorrhoid Puller".

    Actually that tool was tried for that very purpose. Only problem was these here Bakersfield hemorrhoids are impervious to anything less than a 300 PSI air operated jackhammer. In certain cases where one was actually removed from an Oildalian, the Hemorrhoid was able to live and thrive for up to 32 years after said operation. You often find these living and prospering in Arizona desert communities.

    Why would you want to overload and break it?

    My brother was not unlike Norm Crosby the comic who routinely made up words or used them incorrectly. When my brother had severe hemorrhoids and was going to have surgery, he asked the doctor (several family members wee there to confirm this) "Are you going to do a circumsizial on my hemmoroiatobals?". The doctor supposedly broke up nodded yes and left the room. I believe this confirms your supposition that this tool may have been used for both purposes.

    I've got a couple tattoos and thought I recognized it from time spent in the tattooist's chair. Then I googled to confirm.

    ^ What's really annoying is that I once handled one of these damn things, but I can't remember what it was for! I'm pretty sure that the brass joining part was shaped to follow the contours of your fingers - like a reverse knuckle-duster. My memory of handling one goes back to school days - maybe it was a woodworking tool?

    I think it looks like a compass to make a circle on the floor, maybe in sand

    Someone fettle a copy and I will throw it away for them - our bins get emptied next Thursday so if you act quick the mystery will be solved on Friday 12th
