The way it looks it must be some kind of clamp to hold down a kitchen tool?

It's a screw that presses and or cuts a six point star in to something editable that is about 1 to 2 inches (2.5cm to 5cm) tall.

Good mystery so far. This one is burnin' my brain cells. LOL!!

Something editable is on the right track?

Ok what is this? I know what it is called and what it does, but how it does it totally escapes me. Lets see how long this one lasts.




(bumping the image into the next page for those who see 75 posts on a page)

A corer for something?

The root crop clue made me think automatic potato peeler, but it's too small.

If you add Gary's and J mercers posts together, and given the size of the implement, it should be fairly obvious. No more clues until tomorrow :-)

It's not beets, is it?

I don't know what the purpose is, though.

I must have missed that post. You're right though, I think after that rad clue I finally have it despite being half awake today. Is everyone else even sleepier than I am?
