Spanish term or phrase: cisquero
I'm translating thumbnail photos of tools in a silversmithing workshop. This word appears twice: detalle de cisqueros and cisquero (no other context). The photo is hard to see but the non-detail one seems to show pieces of broken metal. That doesn't fit with this definition from the DRAE:

Muñequilla hecha de lienzo, apretada y atada con un hilo, dentro de la cual se ponía carbón molido, y servía para pasarla por encima de los dibujos picados, a fin de traspasarlos a alguna tela o a otro papel.

TIA!

Thank you very much, Liz! Sorry I took so long to grade, but I've been waiting for some input from the publisher, but everyone's so overworked, no one's looked at my questions. From the picture it doesn't look like a bag or wheel, but this certainly seems to be the right translation in general terms. Thanks again!
