Maybe an OK Cub first version .049 head? Would be neat if that runs on old style Cox cylinders.

Yes, it's from a OK Cub, Herkimer copied a lot of Cox stuff, their glowhead fits the post '56 Cox stuff as well.

Well I whipped out my Cub .049s and tried my recently acquired Cub cylinder clamp out for the first time. My Cub head screws right down into my Space Bug Jr. cylinder, so I believe that's what you have there. Let us know how it tests out. You may have to piddle around with plug selections for best results if it works at all.

Or did Cox copy some Cub stuff?

yep, good call, you're probably right as the Cub came before the Space Bug, and likely LeRoy copied their glowhead from early O.K. Cubs, Cub later copied their first glowhead (c.'58) the same dimensions as Cox post '56.
