What is this?
« on: May 25, 2017, 01:38:05 PM »
I found this in the bottom of a junk box I bought at a garage sale for a buck. I got a lot of drill bits and taps, nails, screws, and some bicycle parts.

I'm wondering if this is a part from a bike. It is a little larger than a dime and very light. aluminum or pot metal ? I thought maybe something fishing related ?

It's just too cool to throw out. What is it though?

It looks to me to be a zipper pull off of a glove or a light jacket. Missing the ring to hold it to the zipper.


Coincidentally there is some woven sets of zipper pulls by ASEMERY in another recent topic. I still think that it what it is though, since I think I have have seen zipper pulls like that before.


That is "my" "guesstimate" of what it is for...


Edit: got cut off before I could edit spelling & such... So, I came back & edited it.

I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)
