    Anyone know what this thing is? I found it in the bottom of a box of reloading stuff I bought at an auction. Im sure its not a reloading item. Its weighs about 8 lbs. Its 14" long. Its says forged steel and J. Sklar Mfg Brooklyn Ny. Just wonder what it is.

    I'd hate to wager a gruesome guess, but, Sklar was a medical equipment manufacturer....embalming machines etc....
