    In my last post of a shoemaker's lasting pliers I said I would show some of the more common type. Here are 8 examples in different sizes. The projecting heel in this case acts as the pivot and also as a small hammer for tacks. The pliers in the last picture works in a similar way but is for pulling off old soles.

      Thanks for the comments. To answer your question lptools, some have no markings and some are too worn to read, or maybe my eyesight isn't up to it any more. The only one I can read is George Barnsley, an English maker.

      With the help of a magnifying glass I managed to read another maker's name; Penton & Sons, London.
