THE mystery of the baffling object has come to a close, after Granville man Alan Thurecht identified the strange tool with the help of a few suggestions.

Puzzled by the strange object Mr Thurecht, visited the Chronicle office with the hope that readers might identify the object that had been plaguing him for weeks.

Several suggestions were given to the Chronicle regarding the identity of the tool, although no two answers were the same.

Mr Thurecht said he, too, had several suggestions of what the steel tool could be.

"I believe it is a pipe clamp wire twister," Mr Thurect said.

"Quite a few people have suggested it to me, and it seems to make a lot of sense.

"From what I've heard it was used to twist wire around pieces of piping to keep them in place."

Identifying the old instrument has given Mr Thurecht peace of mind, he said.

"It's good to know what it is," he said.

"I'm very thankful that people were happy to help out and throw a few of their suggestions into the hat."

Some of the answers sent to the Chronicle included a spreader, a tension adjuster, an external clamp expander and a mechanical clamp.
