Babbit tool or sand casting tool ?
« on: January 20, 2019, 12:30:32 PM »
I have this tool that needs ID so I can properly sell it.
Marked N T I   S1982H-1 and has 982-12 on both ends. The ends do thread off, so they must interchange with other ends. 9 1/2 " long , and the "spoon" ends are 3/8" wide.

Does not look like the bearing scrapers in my collection.

Guessing.  Tire lever for motor or bicycle.  Maybe the ends unscrew to fit in a tool kit.

Not strong enough for tire tools. The ends are shiny on the convex side as if they were used on something hot.

Hello, Papaw. I was thinking dental? but it would most likely need to be all stainless. There is a huge market for hobby spatulas, could be for wax carving??? Regards, Lou
