Gizmo...where did the word come from???

Hey Cecil,

New guest and hello from Alaska. What and where did the word, Gizmo, come from. It is used a million or billion times for anything and everything but how and when was this word created??? Maybe a tough one for you but I have faith…ciao:cool::cool::cool::cool::cool::cool:

Just a word to use when you don’t know what to call something. Just who invented it or why they used it is still a mystery.

And, since Evan wrote his article, there hasn’t been any further progress taking it back before 1942. U.S. Marines and/or Naval Air.
