<p>Does anyone know what this was used for? </p><p>Thanks.</p>
<p>Yep. Saw tooth set.</p>
Hay Bale strap tightener?
Definitely saw tooth set. I own sevral and use them on antique saws when restoring them. DO NOT get rid of it. That 5 dollar saw you find in a yard sale might be worth 500 dollars. I sold a saw last week for 573 bucks. (all he had in his pocket.)<br>
wish i would have seen this about a year ago ... i have a stanley tool much like this one but with a few extra dials for setting depths and pitchs i guesss and i swear i researched on and off for nearly a year and a half before i came across an instruction manual for my model for sale somewhere online . and woow Richie 114 who woulda thought obsolete tools could fetch so much ! they do posses a certain element of nastalgia (spellcheck) though i suppose<br>
That saw you sold better have been a 12&quot; compound slide miter chop saw. Only saws I know of worth so much! I'm always on the lookout for good hand saws myself. For a buck or two ...
Haha! I wouldn't sell my miter saw, My Milwaukee 12&quot; sliding compound is worth a lot more to me than it sold for, My wife got it for my birthday :) <br>I love my antique tools though, I have a stanley #55 plane that'd give most people a run for their money just trying to figure out how it works! Google it for some pics of a wild looking wonder! <br>It had ALL its blades too :) I just wish the box was in better shape. <br>
Well not being most people I've seen plenty of Stanley #55s 100% complete MIB so you're going to have to try a little more to pique my interest. Maybe a Sandusky Tool Co. 1876 Centennial center-wheel plow plane might do the trick. Google that!<br> <br> I use my tools so that having been said my plane collection is more mundane. I don't typically spend more than $5 for one either. Most in the $2-$3 range. For what a #55 tries to do I reach for a router.<br> <br> Some working planes I have.<br>
It a saw tooth seter. It used to set the teeth on a hand saw. When you have missaline teeth on a saw.
Wish there had been a video of a cycle... I think it is an early nibber to cut holes in thin sheet metal... it takes a small piece of the metal out with each squeese
Think it might be a saw set plier. the punch would push the tooth of the saw over to achieve the desit=red set
thank you masterchippy,been doing some searching and you are right,very much appreciated,thank you
Look like a horse shoe nails remover for old square nails
thanks for your comment but i have to say when you squeeze the handle a small like punch comes up from bottom and the turn knob on front is an adjustable for the metal piece in front
