    That thing with the serated wheels on it is a dressing tool for a grinding wheel.

    the thing in the middle looking sorta like pliers I think is a saw set....used to offset the saw teeth on a hand saw when you sharpen it...

    I agree with the dressing wheel....

    The dealy with the T-handle on one end and the kinda-bell-lookin tapered thingy at the other end, between the rock and the grinding wheel dresser, is a small leveling jack. For leveling old tools like lathes and so forth.
    The doodad on the left, behind the grinding wheel dresser, looks like some kind of hand-operated punch.

    That thing that looks like a minature c-clamp, looks to be a chain break.

    Re: Alright old tools guy\'s WTF are these things?????

    The pliers-like tool is a saw set. I have one. The grinding wheel dresser is unamimous. As is the punch behind the dresser. The Screw Jack is used on mill set-ups more than lathe set-ups. I'll guess the C-clamp like tool is for crimping cable ends onto cable. I've no idea what the T wrench is for.

    Was watching American Hot Rod and saw them use that exact manual punch to make spot weld holes on body panels and floors and stuff.

    I agree with the rest.

    Re: Alright old tools guy\'s WTF are these things?????

    Could the punch press and the plier punch be tools for working with leather? Now that I think about it I saw a guy use similar tools once forming leather skins. Probably not, I'm just sitting at work bored staring at that picture thinking that I know everything.

    Re: Alright old tools guy\'s WTF are these things?????

    the pliers are definately for a saw, there is no punch on it but there is a wedged dial with numbers,
    i assume for what degree you want on the teeth...And I just looked at the press and it seems to be for pressing in grommets or snaps.... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
