Funny, I have one as well and I too posted here inquiring what it is. Someone told what it is but I don’t remember what the response was.

I must not have interested me because I forget where I put it too.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

Aren't energy consumption and computers supposed to make life less stressful?

If you are not having fun then you are doing it wrong.

Looks like an adjustable ratchet wrench.

Yep, you are right. Sort of a mechanic's Leatherman.

I use mine for screwing in eye bolts, J-hooks, etc., as it was deigned for.

Looks to me like an attempt at a ratcheting adjustable tap wrench, but doesn't appear robust enough for that application.
