If you don't believe there is an eclectic collection of what-nots, do-dads and tons of other stuff normal people have never seen over at my much older brothers shop, look closely at this photo. Years ago, thinking early '80's Dad was on a slow drive back from town (which was typical) and over by the creek he spotted this suitcase thrown off in the road ditch. Thinking there was probably some gangsters severed hand or head in it opened it up to find these odd tools. Now someone out there knows what they are but us fellows are just guessing and the best guess so far is that they are the tools of a clay sculpturer.

They may be tools of torture, but never having been held hostage (except by the government and their policies), I just don't know. Anyway, no one claimed them back 3 dacades ago and so here they are here collecting dust until the next generation makes a call to American Pickers. Soooo.....any ideas ???
