Mystery Tool


Hi Folks-
I recently found a mystery tool & was hoping one of you might recognize it.

It appears to be some kind of sprayer, maybe for varnish or paint from a pressure pot? Perhaps Fred Flintstone's garden hose nozzle?

There is a barbed fitting on the end and the large, grey handle turns.
At the end which is on top in the photo, the end cap also turns & is removable. That is the "Exit" end. It has a 1/8" hole in the center.
Under this nozzle looks like a turbulator. The tool is about 9" long, 6" high and weighs just under 3 lbs.

While blowing through the barbed fitting, turning the large handle seems to adjust the air flow, but I can't be sure. It does not shut it off completely, but the gasket under the exit end cap is shattered & may have something to do with it.

The only markings are the words "Cash Standard". That was part of the slogan of AW Cash Company.

The whole slogan was "Is It The Ordinary Standard or The Cash Standard?"

They made (and still make under the name CashCo) valves. Mr. Cash made kites and typewriters, too.

I asked the company and the person said that they did, indeed, make the tool but no one knows what it is or when it was made.

Do any of you recognize it? Also, do you think the body is copper or brass? It looks like the color of copper, but that seems odd.

Thanks Very Much!
Paul

I see it says "Pat." on the side. If there is a patent number try a google search of it.

No such luck- Just the word PAT.
I tried looking at patents by Cash Co & Mr. Cash for nozzles, sprayers and similar. But, before 1979 only images exist, so words are not searchable.

I don't think it's a tool. I'm going to speculate that it's from a machine...boiler maybe?
