Made these to help with my bathroom remodel from 2 clothes pins. Can you guess what they are for? 3 pieces glued to clothes pin and a small bolt.

Place under the door to take on/off the hinge pins?

I’m betting they are used for spacing, like for a shower door; something that needs to be adjusted up or down before mounting.

Put a propeller and rubber band on it and fly it around.

No idea, have done a few bathroom remodels and never needed anything remotely like that lol.

Are you trying to level something with your device?

Would also guess for scribing, but seems rather complicated for that, and why the need for two.

Will guess some type of leveling aid to set the first course of tile? Or wainscoting treatment?

Obviously it’s a device to pull out nose hairs so they can be trimmed. :)

Looking at the depth stop and guessing it is not to level up a bath tub I came up with this.

It is to level up and support the first row of tile until the mud sets enough to move on.

Those are some good tries. Wildwood was spot on.

They are to hold up sheets of bead board to a leveled line while mounting to the wall.

I had convinced myself that shims would not work due to gaps around the wall. SMP may be right.

The newer composite shims are pretty nice. They are pre-scored in multiple locations so you can easily snap them off where needed. If you need more versatility, you can stack them, slide the angled pointy side to pointy side and overlap them, so that sliding further together lifts higher and sliding apart goes lower. Lifetime supply for $2:
