      Most likely a Rivet Setter, many trades, leather working, and some were used on automotive brake shoes. The Patent dates are valid for 1900, but I was unable to find the company. The casting could have carried that date for many years, or until the company stopped producing that casting. Nice find!! Regards, Lou

      I would say rivets and grommets in leather work. Doesn't look like the anvil was ever used.

      Hello, fhrjr2. We seem to be in agreement on its use. That screw cap is interesting, is it there to store rivets, or to maintain the mechanism? I have a couple similar tools here, I will ty to dig them out!!
