What are these tools for?

Recommended Posts

What are these for and what are they worth? A friend thinks they are for aligning straight axle cars. They are both made by John Bean Mfg.

I'd say the second one is a crimping device of some sort. The short jaws next to the pivot and the fine thread ball-point bolt lead me to believe that the screw would spread the handles while using the longer arms to power the jaws closed.
