Is this a brake lining riveting tool Scotty?
Nope. Not even close Cobba. It's a button press made by Rheubens. Buttons in Australia has a pretty interesting history.

Hello all
Heaton buttons were kinda stapled together. You put the button and 'staple' in the pliers and crimped the tab ends over when the pliers closed.
A picture (patent drawing) with button in. From what I know, their buttons were popular in shoes.



You can't really tell with Ian's set but they had a spring clip on the pliers to hold the button in position.

Thanks Scott and Ian. Now I know. Another bit of useless info to add to all the other useless stuff clouding this old brain.
Cheers,
Steve.

Hi

How would you like to be hanging on to this baby, 1 inch square drive torque driver.  I believe it came from the APPM paper mill in Burnie Tas.

Regards

Hello all
Here's a 'what is it?'. It's some sort of grinder similar to a sickle bar sharpener. Does anyone know for what particular purpose? It pivots up and down as well as side to side (by means of handle hidden behind winding handle in the second picture) and can be clamped to something. I thought a cylinder mower grinder.





And here's a simple one.
Cheers Scott

For the grinder to be for sharpening a cylinder mower it would have to be able to travel left to right the width of the cylinder. The sign behind it says "hand linisher" would that help?    :P

That was a rough guess after someone said something. Most of the people there are not convinced. I'll get some better pictures next week.

Hello Ian
One item I really took note of is the term turnscrew instead of screwdriver. Even then us sparky dudes had to be special and have their own sort of turnscrew.  ;D

Cheers Scott

Well so did fettlers on the railway. Their shovels became semi-automatic ballast levelers.
