Hello Ian,
Oh come on.   ;)
The yellow thing is a wire strainer. At least I know that one.
It must time for other people to take the time to post some tools, so I'll get some old tools out later and post to see if people can identify them if I don't know what they are. There is one tool sitting in front of me that I've been trying to find out what it is for a few years now. I have an idea and I'll post them later.
There's a few spanners I've collected purely because of their brand name. I hope they're here and not in Brisbane.

Thanks for the pictures Ian. I really enjoy old tools no matter how small or big.
Cheers Scott

Hello Ian,
You've got me on the blower matey. I would have guessed forge but it would get too hot.

Here is a tool I'd love to know what it's for. I found it years ago and all I can think of is a hole maker for leather belting like used in harness gear. Please if you know what it is let me know. The apple corer looking screw in the middle goes all the way through the base plate.

Cheers Scott

Hello all
Here are a couple of my Pop's tools. Who knows what they're used for?
I'm going to take them to some rallies one day to show people. I doubt if too many have seen them in action.

Cheers Scott

Oh Scotty thats too easy!!!!
You only have to go to my Grandfathers shed to see them still in use!!!!,I won't ruin the fun and see what the others come up with.
We are making some  items with them at the moment, when the time comes I'll post pictures of the almost lost trade they are used for.
I watch and listen very carefully when i'm with the Generation of people that used these tools,its always worth the time to pick up the little secrets and what the correct type of material is used for which part of the job!!!!

Cheers Justin

The name on this spanner explains it all. I wonder how many are around? It is very crudely made so probably quite old.

This tube spanner was patented by Reginald Duigan, brother of John Duigan the well known Australian aviator. Reginald lived near Colac and the patent is dated 1931. The handle is formed in such a way that it cannot be removed from the spanner.

This tool is for drilling holes in vee belts, specifically on early belt drive motorcycles. Originally, every rider that had a belt drive bike would have had one in his tool kit.
