      I have seen tools from all around the world but never saw this one.

      I have seen these, but can't remember what it's for. Senility has it's advantages. I just don't remember what they are ! Probably come to me around 3:AM ! Was it whipping lead for body repairs ?

      I can't tell by the pictures but if it is concave on one end and convex on the other end, it is a tool used in brick or block laying to finish the mortar edge between the bricks or blocks.

      Hard to tell from the pics, but Watchsearcher may be right, looks like a morter joint striker.

      Wristwatches is right.

      Ignor that. Watchsearcher is right.

      Or perhaps..........a cotter pin removal tool. Sears used to sell them

      Not convinced on either. The end of a trowel is rounded for finishing mortar joints & using a separate tool would be troublesome & slow work. I have an OLD Sears cotterpin remover and it is like a screwdriver with a pointed curlecue end. I've had one of these in my hand, but can't remember the use.

      Pictures are terrible with a bad background. Aside from that it basically looks like a star adjuster that was used doing brake jobs years ago. Some used a pointed end while others used different width spoon type ends. The curve was for leverage because the star adjusters always rusted and locked up. My 2 cents.

      All the mortar trowels I've seen have a pointed tip which would make a "V" shape intention in the mortar and certainly can be used to finish the mortar.
      However, to achieve a rounded, indented or protruding mortar edge, a special tool is needed.
      I still believe this is a mason's mortar finishing tool if it does, indeed, have a concave/convex shape.
      Better pictures would help. Plus, markings may be obscured by grime in the posted pictures.

      Could it be a moulder's tool for putting the finishing touches to a sand mould?
    13. bobby725 bobby725, 2 months ago
      got a lot of ideas, need better pics.

      I agree with Watchsearcher,...
