Benedix clue

Almost a year ago, Marie Benedix sent this in to be identified by our keen Midwest Messenger readers.

In a message that has been lost in time, Benedix said that the device is 4 inches wide and 9 and a half inches long with the name Weeler on it.

Hopefully, some of our readers can identify the tool and put Benedix’s mind at ease after a year of wondering what her in-laws’ device could be.

“What’s This?” and why does it work the way it does?
