I found this lying on the road during my ride to work this morning. Can anyone shed some light on what it is?






Banana for scale.

There's a subreddit called What is this thing that is frequently amazing at identifying mystery objects. (If you post your pics don't mention the banana or the auto-mod will delete the post :) )

I was just checking out that "What is this" thread on reddit and came across this shop. Pretty impressive!

Looks like an electronics vice for holding circuit boards. They usually have rubber jaws.

You clamp it to edge of a board into which you want to drill perfectly perpendicular holes for dowels and it guides your drill bit.
