This week's collaboration with What is it? Blog brings us this strange object (from a 100-year-old kit). Can you tell us what it is for?
Place your guess in the comment section. You can guess as many time as you'd like, but please don't post URLs - let others play! No prize this week, you're playing for fun and bragging rights.

Good luck!Update 10/26/07 - the answer is:
This kit was used by U.S. Internal Revenue agents to determine the alcohol content of distilled liquor, which would be poured into the container and tested with the hydrometers.
Congrats to Chris W #5 who got it right!
