    I have a bet riding on this and cant for the life of me figure out what this tool does!

    It has a threaded rod and a piece of metal that flips down to stop the threaded rod from freely moving, it has a 1/2" square bit on the bottom side and on the end of the threaded rod there is a plate with 2 holes in it

    seems to secure to 2 things and pull them apart?

    any help is great!

    someone on JeepForum.com figured it out...

    pretty easy, it is an adjustable kind of catch for a table saw to guide the wood on a straight line

    Are you sure it's not the clamp from a chop saw? Edit: Specifically, from a Ridgid?

    Rigid would be it hence the orange handle.
