Picked up this shear today. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a small one. It does 1/8”-3/8”. Most of of the ones I have seen were larger.

I like the shear, but you weren’t supposed to tell us what it was yet. I would like to see the other side of it? That’s a pretty old one I’d say. Marvel makes a very good band saw.

Here is a tool you don’t see much anymore??IMG_1042.thumb.jpeg.80ee424b37cc28d7db06b66074f21b3b.jpeg

Bar tip grease gun? Dads had a thumb button. We don’t use them anymore, better tip life if you never do it.

We always called those a Yankee screwdriver. I still have my Dads’ and maybe a second. I still was using it up into the 90s when cordless exploded.

That is interesting that it says Marvel on one side and Armstrong on the other. Armstrong was the Toolmaker of choice for several of the USA made machine tool manufacturers. Outfits like Kearney and Trecker manufactured every piece of their machine tools , right down to every last bolt. When it came to the tool kit the wrenches were often Armstrong. 
The shear appears to be a dedicated rod shear? 1/2” capacity?                                        Thanks for the picture .

What is this? Been around for years and never really been sure what all its suppose to do. The one end looks like it's for breaking Square chains apart. Part of it looks to be for sickel section repair maybe? But not sure what all the various portions are suppose to do.

I’d say it’s for sickle sections. I see places to set rivets and things like that. Never seen one with that many functions though. Mine says “chain detacher” on the other side.

It says “marking outfit for anything metal” on the lid. Military green. They are 1/8” metal stamps I know but it came with jigs for marking specific things. I’d love to know what else should have been in the “kit”. Maybe a hammer?  This came from a local sale.

I was going to dig this thread up myself, thanks Sledge, what are these for? They seem well made but not very rugged.

Looks like they would work on the Chrysler spring hose clamps.

I was going to say hose clamp pliers but @snoshoe beat me to it.

I did not know the spring hose clamps were a Chrysler thing.  As I just had my tool like that out and I sure was not working on Chrysler.  Must of been the New Holland swather needed a new radiator at the end of the season.

They are a major improvement over any other kind of pilers I have tried, on a spring cllamp.
