Adjust like vise grips
Tire bead breaker tool...?
Depending on how wide those jaws are,I'd say someone was using it for a trans band clamp.
I think you got it Harold. Vise grips came to be around 1940-42 ,so it would be around that time this tool was made. I have an early set of vise grips,dated and they have a military number on them.
I have a set of vice grips that I got from my wife's grandfather.
They say Patent pending on them.
Anyone here know what a wickerbill is?
Thanks to Google, I do now! However, if not for Google, I'd probably just think it's an invoice, showing the charges for the most current set of "wickers" that my wife ordered!
Herb, I haven't heard that term for years! Looks like one to me! Dave
