Sasquatch shaver

Who's purse did you find it in?

 

Better leave that guy and his purse alone if that’s his concealed carry of choice. 
 

I’ve seen those before but not sure the original purpose.

This looks like a blade "holder" to install or remove a lawn mower blade.

What do you call this? I believe the stamp says D. Taft and sons. Came from what had been the local IH dealer and was a feed and farm supplier going back into the 1800’s 

i found this about D.Taft, for whom Taftsville is named after, it is about 40 miles from me.

This appears to be a froe. It seems to be a more modern version. 

A froe is used to split shingles with a mallet.

I wondered but have never seen one made that way. Sharpened on the wrong side for a sickle of some sort.

I kind of see that but the sharpened edge is a strange shape compared to the froe my dad has. His is blacksmith made, but a long straight very heavy blade. 
much like this

i would think if it were a type of froe it would fall out of the handle about the 3rd blow with that design.

Yes 

I still am foggy on how they are used on loose hay. Watched a couple videos, usually some dork attacking a round bale.

I only know of one person that uses one. Has goats and cuts off what he uses. Said when they are sharp they work great. I have never seen one being used personally.

I know they are pliers but what for?  Says Dasco No 302 “Eagle Claw Wrench”.  They are a slip joint but have a beak like Sam the Eagle from the muppets, hence the name I suppose.

Had something kind of like that for nuts on battery cable clamps. The where not adjustable and more on a 45 degree angle rather than 90 like this pare. They worked good on the nuts that where corroded so no socket or wrench was right.

I was at a distant cousin’s garage and saw a tool on the wall labeled “what’s this?”
After he passed there was an auction and of course I had to buy it.   A Google search of the company E. A. Baumbach Mfg. only indicated that they were in the tool and die business.  Anyone have any ideas “what’s this” is used for?

An uncle had an English one like that.  IIRC brand or name was "Puffin".

And on that "half dozen" - that is likely the answer Mike N. will give you if you ask him what the number between 5 and 7 is.
