Silly Contest


Time for another round of 'Guess the Thrifty Find' game. I came across this interesting object at a thrift store the other day when my mom was in town. She didn't know what it was, which is surprising, so I thought it might be worthy of the Silly Contest. Of course, for all I know, this one may be easier, so get your guesses in fast. Leave a comment here or email me at christine [AT] adaptivereuser.com. The first person to answer correctly gets to choose a pair of adaptive reUse earrings from my Etsy shop.

Darn, someone got there before me :)I was just proud I knew what it was.

My hubby knew what it was. I didn't believe him and looked it up. He was right. He said it is designed to measure the distance between spark plug electrical thingys. If they are spaced improperly, they don't "spark."

The right-hand part is for measuring the gap on spark plugs. The left-hand side is used for spark plugs too, but I don't remember how. Do I get points for having used one of these in the 1990's when I used to change my own spark plugs?

Spark plugs, shmark plugs. My orthodontist used these on my teeth when he was adjusting my braces in the early 90's. Luckily ortho technology has changed since then.

It's collapsible spurs for traveling that conveniently fold up to fit nicely in your luggage.
