It "dispenses" something, but not Pez.

And nothing to do with gardening.

No, just feeling a little jocular.

Other than the fact that you have given us a few clues, I don't have a clue! I haven't found any pictures to back these crazy thoughts, but could it be something to measure the size of pearls? To measure the size of ball-bearings? To measure the depth of topsoil? To measure the depth of the snow-pack?

Well, I'm out of ideas for now!

Sorry Barbara, none of those either.

It's use is very similar to how measuring spoons are used, but with its own specific substance to measure.

I see where you're coming from, Blood, but that's not it either.

Let's see if this gets a different direction going;
I set it is used outside. It could be used inside, but that would be considered unsafe. Most everyone that would be using this would be doing so outside.

Is solid matter drawn into it to be measured or is it filled with a measure of solid matter and ejected into something.

since it shouldn't be used indoors, is the material that it uses combustible?
