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.

That's exactly what it is. There are IH ones out there I believe.

Holds the steel manure spreader drag chain.

I can’t say that I’ve seen a hammer quite like this one. Again, a broken handle junker I cleaned up. Did it have a specific purpose not having a claw?  Slate? Masonry? I really don’t know.  I drove a few nails with it and it works for that 😊

Looks like a shingle hammer for cedar shingles.

You split the shingle to size as needed.

So tool I.D. has come up again recently. Thought I would dig up Todd's thread. Snowing here today and I have a couple of entries, so.....

The one I just purchased off E-Bay, other came from an auction years ago. The auction piece I really have no idea what it is. The E-Bay one I know but will let you guys figure it out awhile. Some of the guys that have been doing this for some time have probably got one in their toolboxes.

Valve adjuster. Mine was marked, "SIOUX".

You put the socket on that fits the lock nut.

Pull the handle and loosen the lock nut.

Push the wheel down into the screw driver slot and turn to adjust the valves.

Then lock the nut with the handle.

Recent addition from my Dad's downsizing, hope to never use it 😳

Probably a Plumb brand judging by the reddish handle.

That tool is for taking square link chain apart. Like old manure spreader link chain

Here’s a strange one. It came in a lot with something else I bought several years ago. Plumb branded ball pein with to balls 😊 My guess is for stretching metal but I don’t know for sure.

That is for "breaking" chains that are the square style. You slide the chain in the appropriate slot and use it as a backer or anvil and pound it apart.

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.

My best guess on this one is a sort of multi tool. One end looks for sickles and setting rivets while the other end looks like a chain breaker with the fingers. I would assume it must be mounted to a bench judging by the base.

Any chance that larger ball is the result of a modification of a regular ball pein hammer?

It’s all machined from the factory that way best I can tell.

have friends who are roofers

That is worse than friends who are plumbers, and that is mighty bad. I would keep that on the DL if I were you.

I know what this is but I’ve never seen anything like it. Referencing the fully threaded wedge screw. I picked this up locally because I like Plumb branded hammers for their quality. This one has the original handle and was in good shape along with a cheap price tag so I brought it home. I was going to tighten the head up with a new wedge but all I had to do was tighten the screw. I assumed this was done later but I now think it was original. Pretty cool idea and it actually works. Ever seen anything like it?

Can't say that I have. But it does  look like a good idea!
