Just try and get an an­gle on this one

This week our mys­tery item comes from Carl Jack­son of Ar­chive An­tiques in New Town.

At first glance you would be for­given for think­ing you are look­ing at a bot­tle of black nail pol­ish.

Used in the 1950s and 60s by one of the most im­por­tant trades in the world, this gad­get fits in the palm of your hand.

If you look closely you may see a win­dow along the side.

The sil­ver me­tal tube may be a han­dle – but which way up do you think it goes?

A per­son can do the job just as well with­out it al­though this lit­tle de­vice gives a stronger mea­sure of ac­cu­racy.

If you think you know what it is please send in your an­swers and sto­ries to tassieliv­ing@news.com.au

See you next weekend.
