Dual purpose? Used one way up for hex nuts and upside down for C spanner nuts. Still does not explain the kink in the hex on both ends though.

Hi Ian

One bloke at our weekend rally, thought it was for closing wool packs, eg. Pulling the flaps tight before putting the staple in

Cheers

Reminds me a bit of the things used to grab and carry block ice, back in the day when we had ice chests rather than fridges.

Hi  wee-allis

If it was for picking something up both sets of prong would be facing inward?

Cheers

Got you Ian, but with it folded like it is in the photo, it's a bit hard to see how it operates.

I think it is a barbed wire  strainer for putting tension on the wire when erecting. I have something similar but not the hooks you have rather it has a "U" shape for the wire to fit into.

Hi

The tool is not mine, that's the only picture I have.  I will see the owner in the next few days (once I get over this head cold) and will get some more pics with it open.

Is the straight/bent ring spanner 3/4 both ends? If so the 2324 is probably the manufacturer's part number.

What is the little clamp between the two Five Minute Vulcaniser clamps for? A few years ago I bought some vulcaniser patches to repair a tube from the 27 Chev. I was surprised to find they were still available. These were made in China. No matter what I tried I could not get the heating compound to ignite. I even tried soaking one in methylated spirits: the metho just burned off, leaving the heating tablet unmarked. Tried using a pin point flame from a propane torch: it produced a small charred circle, but the heating compound still would not burn - had to take the tube to a tyre service to get it repaired.

I wonder if they were a new product - safety patches - guaranteed not to burn careless users?

Have used the Footprint wrench, and the vulcanising clamps. I had problems back in 1974 when I took a job with BHP at Port Headland, they issued me a tool list and among the items was a Mole Wrench. Went to every tool shop in Sydney and got some very funny remarks, but no wrench or wench. It turned out to be vice grips, and it was a colloquial, name as Mole was a manufacturer same as Crescent Wrench.
