Been clearing out an old cupboard today and found this but have no idea what it is? Its about 5" diameter and the top half lifts up.

Anybody know???

That looks like a metalwork exercise to me. Not a purpose bought thing but a lesson in making something out of metal, that has involved metal shaping, welding, construction and design. Not the best in the world but a jolly good effort.
'What's it for'? Probably anything you fancy.
Do you have anyone in the family who may have done metalworking at school, college etc?

Think you'll find its an early bug catcher for flatheads:tup:

Notice the fine adjustment for intake volume, and the elegant 30s style knob.
