Do you actually know what these things are and you're quizzing us or do you not know what they are, either?

Is it rigid or does it flex?

i have no clue, winds.
read pic 234 for the history and why.

does not flex, thus it must be a handle.

My guess it's to lift something at a factory which is hot.

The coil isn't for spring loading, it's to deflect heat from the

obvious handle. Look for something with @ 1/4" round holes

at the proper interval in it's sides . . .

Maybe the handle to remove the lids from dutch ovens, or the hot plates from the old wood burning stoves..............

I'll bet that's it. I think I vaguely remember my grandmother having something like that.
