Look What I Found!

I found this gizmo at a yard sale, and bought it not knowing what it was....it just looked like something I should buy. It's definitely automotive related. Does anyone care to guess what it is? And if you know what it is, please explain how it was used, because I don't have a clue.

Gizmo

It's a tire patching tool. The patch goes between the flat surface and the tube. A flammable substance is added to the cup like area and lit the heat vulcanizes the patch and the tube.

Probably a mixture of sulphur and potasium nitrate.
