I'm guessing it is for a single handle faucet, kitchen or shower.

Looks like it would fit a nut such as this:

Here's a link (https://www.acehomecenters.net/products/faucet-nut-price-pfister%7C4231692.html) in case you want to buy some so you can use the wrench. ;)

It's a spanner wrench. The fastest way to determine what iti is for, is toss it in the garbage, :eek: shortly after that you will need it. :D
If you don't like that plan you can start dismantling everything you own, table saw, faucets, washing machine, remove all saw blades and grinding discs or wheels from their arbors. It will be for the last item left intact.
If you don't like that plan, toss it in the drawer and wait. Someday you will need it. Chances are you will forget about this spanner or forget where you put it and end up buying another one. :o

My 4.5" Harbor Freight angle grinder uses a similar wrench.

Here's a link to a picture of one similar to the one I have.

I have the lower end Pittsburgh brand, not the higher end Chicago, but, the wrench is pretty much the same.

(Man does that sound weird....HF has a lower and higher end......)

Agreed on all counts:D. Now I am thinking where to put it that I would find someday when I need it.

Probably doesn't fit something like nut pictured above. 6 sides vs. 8 sides, if I'm looking at it right.
