    I came across this today, never seen one before. I can not see a makers name, and I have no idea what it is. I thought maybe one of you ROD's might have seen or used something like this before.

      I'm older than dirt and ready to learn what this is. This is a good learning site. Should be a bunch of guesses on this one.

      You sure come up with some strange merde.
    3. Odauctions Odauctions, 2 months ago
      Yes, sir re Bob!

      Wow, what an INTERESTING thing that is, no matter what it really is -- I'm looking forward to finding out, also what everybody might guess in the meanwhile?! To start with 'irreverent idea #1', IF it was shiny chrome plated I'd nearly guess it was some kinda kinky sex-toy device, but it isn't, so it must have a rather more 'pedestrian' application...? <giggle>
      Seriously, are the pairs of plier-jaws springloaded either way, and do they actually open or close when the halves of the thing are screwed together with the crank handle?
    5. Odauctions Odauctions, 2 months ago
      Not spring loaded, yes they open and close depending on which way you crank. You might be right about the sex toy, it could look this way after a great deal of use.

      A very cleverly designed tool called a crab laster and used by shoemakers to pull an upper onto a forming last. The jaws grip the leather at each side and draws the upper onto the last as the handle is turned.
