Hi Ian,
It sounds as though things are moving for you in both senses of the word. A big change in life style can be daunting but also exciting. Good luck with the sale and the future.

Just one thing though, make sure where ever you move, make sure there is plenty of room for the toys, sorry investments.

Hi Steve

Starting house hunting tomorrow, Told "She Who Must Be Obeyed" you can pick the house you want as long as it has a big shed or room to build one.

Hello Ian.
It's a pair of vice grips. Us them for similar things you use new vice grips for. But these ones would be good for sheet metal.

Hi Scott

Very short handles so not much leverage also will only close square, the width of the jaws is adjustable.

Hi

Going to clean it today, so that I can read the name and patent number.

Found these in a black smiths shop. The wheel looking tool has a handle that is just straight but that got cut off in the pic. I have a good idea what it is for, any takers?

Hi Cobba,

The Tool is a measuring wheel that blacksmiths used to measure the difference between the outside of the wooden felloes and the inside of the "tyre" on wagon wheels.
- count the turns on the outside of the built wheel and mark, then do the same on the inside of the tyre and mark and that would tell them how much tension the tyre band has.
I am fortunate that my Grandfather is still building these wheels and have learnt a little bit about the trade.

Cheers Justin

Hugh
That may well be the winner. When I worked for the electricity mob we used sealing pliers all the time. They were even numbered so the person who sealed it could be blamed for 'improprieties'. The ones we used were about 120-150 mm long and had interchangeable heads. ....and a lot newer and shinier.
Does your pliers lock like video grips Ian?
I still have brass sealing wire and a bag of deals in the shed. The seals made great splitshot sinkers.
Cheers Scott

Yep exactly what it is used for. On the ground is the hand operated crimping machine which bends the flat iron into shape. Will post a pic of it later.
