I don't think it's a burnisher or a measuring stick, because I don't 
think he's either measuring or burnishing. It seems to me he's actually 
significantly compressing the edge to fit in the groove in the sidewall 
(whatever that's called), pre-loading it in a sense to fill the groove 
dry - even before milk or water hit it. You can see the ridge he creates 
at 21:10.

FWIW
