Fencing tool ?
« on: 01 May, 2022, 12:51:48 pm »
A city based Great Grand son has asked me about this for show and tell at school, it has been here for as long as I remember. It is about 4 inches each way with a hole at one end of the handle which could be for coiling wire to finish, there are different size grooves in the tapered vee, am at a loss imaging the purpose of this part.
Thanks, David.

Would that V shaped section be used to kink the wire to reduce a bit of slack.

The hole in the ends of the top bar maybe to wind the wire end around the wire, but usually a hole through the bar would work better

Hello jdaley,
Should have said hole near end of handle it does go through, your kinking suggestion would work for short strains such as a framed gate.
