Re: What is it?

Have a junk drawer. Put stuff like that in it. Sometimes figure out what it is and where it goes. Sometimes not. After 2 years clean out the draw. Next day is when you will miss it.

It looks exactly like one of the end caps from my Sampson braided line splicing kit.

That's a metal cap & is still in place - I was wondering if there was some other protective cap like that somewhere. Can't find anything - going with the grease tube cap = trash theory.
