This tool is made by pexto. I looked it up and it said it is a horseshoe splitter. I think it is a little small for this.

    I found this at a small thrift shop. I thought it was interesting and possibly an tool used for measuring. At careful examination it had no # on it. Looked up the Co. and they don't make them anymore only large ones. I would like to know if anyone knows exactly what this tool might be. Is it a shoe splitter for horses?? Is it old?

      Dividers. Used to measure out a fixed interval, among other uses.

      if I recall from my childhood and seeing smithies use these calipers, they check the hooves as they are trimming for shoeing to make sure that they are the same length on each side.
