In my Google search for a photo of them in use on the railroad I came across a 5 part series on the building of the Cross Country railroad. Well done with many bits of history I didn't know about. well worth watching. Bob

Every little town had a Black Smith and often they would make their own tools for the job at hand. There are literally thousands of different pliers and tongs for holding every conceivable shape know to man. As they said in the shop, select a pair that will do the job and use it. If you don't have a pair, make it. Dandy Dave.

I use my huge Snapons to shrink the brake calipers, when installing new pads.
