I saw some many years ago. I suppose they faded away because of theit limited usefulness and awkward gripping of the cab. A dop stick would work much better in my opinion.

I did not realize it was a dop of some kind until Bob just posted.

Any way we could get a larger pic of it.. Would very much like to see it closer up.  Especially the dop end.

I don't know where mine got to but it was handy for grinding a flat surface onto one side of a small piece so it could be dopped and cabbed.  The photo is a bit small, but if it is the same thing, it has two parallel jaws that close when the collar is slid up.  It is awkward as you need to hold the collar from sliding back while you work.  These days I just hold the stone by hand for this purpose.

Unfortunately that is the only photograph I have of it.
