CONGRATULATIONS TO TOPPER FOR THE FIRST CORRECT GUESS... A WOODEN PIPELINE LATH.
IN THOSE DAYS GAS PIPELINES WERE MADE OF WOOD, USUALLY PINE. ALL THE PIPES WERE MADE TO THE SAME SPECS AND WHEN THE PIPE WAS BEING LAID THERE WERE CREWS OF TWO MEN WHO USED THIS TO CUT THE END OF A PIE PIECE SO IT WOUOLD FIT INTO THE NEXT PIPE. THEN A GLUE MADE OF FISH WAS APPLIED TO HOLD THEM TOGETHER. EARLIER THEY WOULD USE RESIN TO MAKE THE SEAL AIRTIGHT. LATER THEY USED TAR... METAL PIPES WERE USED FROM THE MID 1970'S TILL PLASTICS CAME ON THE MARKET.
GOING TO TRY SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT TODAY, AND IT MIGHT NOT WORK WELL,BUT MIGHT JUST BE FUN... TODAYS DEVICE WAS MANUFACTURED IN 1954 AND WAS MADE AS A PROTOTYPE TO SHOW, WHAT THEY BELIEVED, TO BE THE TECHNOLOGY OF THE FUTURE 50 YEARS HENCE. SO THIS IS WHAT THEY ENVISIONED THE TECHNOLOGY TO BE IN 2004. DEMENSIONS ON THIS ARE SKETCHY BUT YOU CAN ENVISION THE SIZE BY THE OL DUDE STANDING NEXT TO IT. YOU CAN GET EXTRA CREDIT TWO WAYS. 1. TELL US WHAT THE DOUBLE WHEEL WAS USED FOR... 2. GIVE ME THE OL DUDES NAME.
