  19. Thanks for all of the loves , comments and thoughts. I'm sure we are getting closer to the answer. The lack of serrations on the tips tell me the tool maker didn't want any markings on whatever was be...

  27. Wow! Who have thunk ?
  28. What other cool stuff did we find in the barn?
  29. Is that some lettering under the horizontal red line? Scrub that sign with water and take some more pictures. This a pretty unusual find.
  30. If fhrjr2 means a proof bench or box, I agree. Very nice piece!
  31. If fhrjr2 means a proof bench or box, I agree. Very nice piece!
  32. This should be marked mystery solved, eh?
  33. Thanks for the recent loves!
  34. My neighbor and I were scrounging in a scrap yard today and he found the exact same pair as these. I agree with Slackjacks comment on these being sugar nippers or cutters. Very cool!
  35. It does look like a primitive keg/barrel auger, very nice!
  36. Love tools!
  37. Mmmmmmm, Duo Glide, yummmmmy! I also know where there is 1962 Duo, just wastin away in a barn. Owner says he's gonna fix it up some day!
  38. Do you have an uber cool car to put this on? If not. You might want to treat yourself!
  39. Did you read the listing and look at the photos and read what is written on the box? Its exact description for use is there. Looks solved to me.
  40. There is one of these on evil bay right now.
  41. I believe these were for automotive use like a license plate topper. This would 6 or 12 volt depending on the bulbs used.
  42. Looks like a hand vise or a wire pulling tool. Search those terms to see more details.
  43. Google search antique meat tenderizer to see quite similar tools. I am sure this is what you have.
  44. It looks like the two pieces are riveted together and do not move, is this correct?
  45. Looks like a meat tenderizer.
  46. That guy slackjack, smart as a whip!
  47. I believe slackjack is correct. The box looks homemade and so do the lucite plugs. Pretty sure this was a standard trammel set adapted for that purpose.
  48. This looks like a balisong or batangueno, a butterfly knife originating in the Phillapines. A lot of these were handmade and not marked. This is very nice!
  49. I believe that tool is an edge finder or "wiggler" used on milling machine for set up purposes.
  50. Makes me think of rum, Bacardi, you know!
