Clarence Giesbrecht of St. Marys, Ont., writes, “Can any­one tell us what this metal tubu­lar level is used for? It’s heavy and mea­sures eight inches in length and 1 3/8 inches in di­am­e­ter. The num­ber 7607938 is em­bossed on the out­side. In­side is a lev­el­ling tube with an air bub­ble in liq­uid. DC3 is also vis­i­ble on the bot­tom.” Clarence can be reached by email at cgies­brecht@quadro.net.

We’re not con­vinced it’s ei­ther, so the mys­tery con­tin­ues—thanks to all who wrote in! Go to our­canada.ca/what-is-it to iden­tify this is­sue’s mys­tery item.
