It is used to create fillets in a wax pattern?

Ahhhh, yes! I don't know why I didn't run into these tools before, but the operative word "fillet" was missing from my searches.

Which, in turn, eliminates the "notch effect" on a load bearing surface.

Excellent work pacanis!!!!!

You win the prize.

It is a filleting iron used to create fillets at 90 degree joints on patterns used to make sand molds for the foundry.

Congratulations. You're up.

Hey pacanis, can I make a request? There are several of us who like to participate here but are finding the "gadget" theme pretty tough. Would you consider doing something else? Anything else? Geography, monuments, anything.

That was a rough one, Buck. I must have ran across every tool BUT those

Alix, I had already taken and uploaded this pic in anticipation, but it's an easy one (basically, at least I think so) and not a gadget. Unfortunately it has nothing to do with geography either, which is a subject I always hated .
If I ever win another one I will try to lean towards a different theme .

OK, here goes.......

No, it is not used to strike anything, nor does anything strike it.
I liked your guess, though.
