    One is a leather purse, and there is also a strange shaped wooden box thing.

    KAIB was pretty close with the spanner.
    It was for the short lived co-axial gas meter, a pig to fit in solid ¾ iron pipe, got discontinued after they found that if the inner ring of the graphite washer got damaged/misaligned (or cut out by a customer ;)) it became a built in by-pass! https://www.flukso.net/sites/default/files/2012-09-13 19.19.52.jpg

    Pollowick, you must understand that it is one person that decides wether your post is pulled or you get a warning or a ban, if you can’t handle that try a more enlightened forum.
