Object no 8 in a series of  3007 pathetically easy to answer ' what is it ?' items.....hmm..this one might be a bit tricky though.

<font color="blue">Men are the same as women.... just inside out !! </font id="blue">
I could not see as anyone answered this one so I would like to cast a guess. Is it the heat strip on a seal a meal machine?

They only were popularised in the 1990's, and were often a differentiator for upmarket units ( though they moved into mainstream very fast) that were actually made in Europe. B&O have had them since the 1980's AFAIK, and there are even pins in the connector that were used by the Beolink system for data transfer. In a unit made for the US market the connector probably was omitted, though you probably did have a place on the board for ther socket, and a blanking panel on the back that covered the hole. If you look on the back of most non HD flat panels, and on all recent CRT units the socket will be there. Allows better quality video and audio interconnects, at least as good as the PAL system allows. You will find it on all european digital satellite units, even if most of the time they are not used.

I think it's a trivet, or at least a part of a trivet. If you have three or more of them, you can set any size of hot cooking pot on them so you don't wreck the French polish on your diningroom table.

Bummer! OK, well, in that case, it's a flatness gauge thingy. You put it on a surface and stick feeler gauges under one of the feet until it stops rocking. Pretty obvious really........

I think Geezer was closer with his second guess than the watermelon holder.  But, he still needs to set down and think about it a bit more.

As a hint.

These tools have separate tasks...  but you might use the first tool in conjunction with this second tool (which also has nothing to do with watermelons or kettles).

Well, the second thing is a watermelon plane, so I have to conclude the initial object is a thingy for detecting highspots on your watermelon so you can plane them flat. It would probably work on wood too.

The second object is not a plane...  nor ever was a plane.

In the Geezeresque style, your hints are above.  Read my comments carefully.

At risk of you crying foul when the answer is revealed, I will say that a blade is not part of either tool, and was not removed for the photo.

Obviously, a two-man (or two-chicken) watermelon slicer. (I've heard they have some really big watermelons in the Pacific Northwet.)
