Thanks, Scott. I believe this tool is calle3d the "Spin-4-It". Al showed it to me. I think it is used in other games, or sold as an all-purpose randomizer.

Just picked up Al Newman's Tin Soldiers today. Dave Rapp showed us
this a while ago at SSG in Dedham. I liked the toy soldiers that it
had in it's prototype stage and was unsure how the cartoon fighting
tin food cans would work. I'm pleased to say it works okay. The
catsup Cannon is amusing.
Attention Matt Horn, in the tin can the cards come in is a piece of
stamped metal shaped like a hand with the index finger extended
(we're #1). It has a dimple in it so you can spin it. That is how you
decide who deals first.
