“We found this object in an old sewing machine. It is plastic; when you press the button something like tweezers comes out. What is this, and what is it used for?”
A: "These are tweezers for removing ticks. I don’t know why it’s in the sewing machine. I can only assume that someone was using it for removing unnecessary threads. It grabs threads perfectly, and I also used it for the same purpose. Still, its main function is removing ticks."
