    I think that this is a tool for crimping barbed wire, but I cannot find another like it online. Maybe I am wrong. Does anyone know what it is?

    Thanks

      Maybe for hot lids or pans on a stove ?

      this is about the fourth one of these I`ve seen on C.W. and no one has given a positive I.D. yet- that I know of! I would sure like to know what they are.

      Any makers name, markings etc?

      not a crimper:

      No marks on it.

      Not an electrical crimper, but a barbed wire crimper.

      looks like he`s guessing too. maybe he`s right, I`d like to know for sure. :-)

      Hello, Could you post a pic of the working end, with the handles open? The gearing looks like this may be a spreader, possibly for chain? Regards, Lou
