This was in a bunch of stuff we got from my wife’s grandfather when he passed away a few years ago. I also got a ton of ancient appearing snap-on hand tools.

And apparently the Arizona heat is no joke. I threw away a bunch of screwdrivers and other tools because the handles was decomposing

Ding ding ding, we have a winner :D . Go to https://www.mcmaster.com/deburring-tool ... -scrapers/ for pictures of a similar one. The S-shaped tip has a cutting edge and swivels. You place it at about a 45 degree angle to a sharp edge and draw the tool along the edge to shave off the burr. The tip swivels to follow the edge. The knurled ring on the handle at the base of the tip should be spring loaded, you depress it to release the tip, and often the handle is hollow to store tips.

Have used them for years to remove the burr on the inside of tubing cut with a tubing cutters . Mostly refrigeration line and medical gas lines where you don't want little flakes of metal inside the tubing . It will peel one long strand if used properly and the blade is sharp . The reemer on a tubing cutter is ok for water lines but makes a mess on lines that need more attention to cleanliness and no contaminants. They work great on the edge of sheared sheet metal also. Dan
