Ok guys any last guesses? Your gonna feel silly if I have to tell you what this tool is used for. I don't want to skirt around the answer much longer. You'll probably want to slug yourself when I give up the answer. If some of you old guys remember Joe and Betty Karbo and Lou's Garage, they used to offer it for $49.95
I'll reveal the answer in a hour or so.

Nope. Not the rings or ring lands.

We didn't eliminate pistons. It just has nothing to do with rings or ring lands.

Well I guess there is no more takers.

This handy little tool is used to expand the piston skirts so you didn't have to re-bore the block and replace the pistons. Usually it was done by chucking the piston in a lathe and using a knurling tool. New rings and a knurled piston and no piston rattle. I haven't heard of anyone knurling a piston in the last 50 years. This is a hand held unit. I've never seen one before nor heard of such a tool. Knurling made a cheap rebuild.

Bet you all wished you had one in your tool box!

Somebody jump in with a question.

I'll tell you what it is, it's AWESOME that's what it is! It's a Hudson I believe but they only had two carbs.

That's Tom McMullen and his roadster. His highboy has arguably set the standard for 32 roadsters. The car recently sold for $700,000. McMullen owned and operated a automotive electrical shop as well as publishing a number
of car and motorcycle magazines.
Something I didn't know was that McMullen was not the original builder of the car. Richard and Phyllis Lovesee owned the car before McMullen had it and guite a lot of the look of the car came from Gene Winfield.
