Carriage jack... it goes under the hub and lifts the carriage or wagon off the floor. I have a set of 4 of them. They could probably be used with a brass car to lift it off the tires for winter storage but they aren't all that stable. You wouldn't want to crawl under.

Is that a leaf spring separator?

Yes, it is used to separate spring leaves in order to lubricate them. Zeke

Ah-ha moment here.  Is this why some early valves have a slot or two holes in the face?  I've only ever used the suction cup style.

Hi,

Leg vice!

I have one that I rescued from a Dumpster at the transfer station a few years ago.

Nice find.

Someone called mine a blacksmith's vice.

Hi,

Yes, I know it's a bit brace.

Extra credit  if you can  tell what trade might find it useful

I'm guessing a plumber would use this so he could drill holes close to a wall.

Everyone has pairs of Vice Grip's. But how many have a NOS pair still in the box with instructions even. Found these in a hoarder house I cleaned out years ago and just could not bring myself to use them. I guess that makes me a hoarder of sort's. 🤪 Dandy Dave!

 Yes, we called it a Blacksmith's vise when I was a kid. My old man was a Blacksmith, and that's what he called it. I have subsequently been corrected to call it a leg vise. Either way, it's a handy piece of kit. You won't break it. I have a spare, about twice the size, but I doubt I'll ever wear mine out.

You were lucky to find one in a skip, as they are keenly sought by the new wave of hobby blacksmiths, in this country. An anvil or a bellows will cost you deep in the purse around these parts.

That's a beauty. Perhaps it pre-dates the ratchet type. Just makes you appreciate our battery drills! I don't miss drilling green fence posts with a brace and bit.

Another old tool used on automotive stuff. I know what it is and have used it. Let's see if anyone else knows?

 As long as the head of the valve has the two holes!

If the valves have two holes, they are probably two piece valves.  i would remove all two piece valves from my cars, if they were there...

I didn't even know Vice Grips came with instructions. I would have never thought of holding the reinforcement on a cracked fender with Vice Grips. Who knew?

Yeah. Just buy them off of the shelf today. They have not come with a box for many, many years. I have lot's of pairs that I use. Just did not want to beat up this vintage pair.

That one is very different as the one we used had long handles like bolt cutters.  I would not want to have my head anywhere near the bulls legs.

I suspect those ones were used one time then went into an estate sale.

I have a pair of vice grips that look just like that pair from the box.

They were handed down to me from my Dad.

Use them all the time. Just used them a few days ago to repair a weed whacker.

Maybe I should put them away and buy a modern pair.  🙂

The Vice Grips with the "Easy Release" are a newer model, not an "antique."

 

Real Vice Grips don't have that.
