Message 1521769 - Posted: 28 May 2014, 4:56:02 UTC

Here are the rules:

1. The previous winner posts a picture of some sort of tool.
2. Other people guess what it is. The poster tells them if they're right or wrong, with any other comments he/she sees fit.
3. After no new guesses have been made for a couple of days, the poster should provide a hint.
4. If there is still no correct answer given, the poster may declare the panel stumped, give the answer, and post another picture.
5. Whoever posts the correct answer is the winner and posts the next tool. Go back to 1.

I didn't see a winner announced in the other thread yet, has someone made a cock-up here?

Cheers.

Shoe stretcher?

I have a set of shoe stretchers, they are shaped more like feet.

I was thinking resizing hats.
