Can anybody ID these tools?
Thanks for any help.

The bottom one has "Parker 1" OD"
Park is a fitting company so I would assume that tool is some sort of swage tool for 1" fitting.
Is it spring loaded, like you could hit it with a hammer?
No guess on the other two.

Thanks Scott,
A friend has these tools so I don't know about spring loading.
I'm familiar with aircraft fittings and I think you're right.
Looks like a flaring tool for aircraft tubing.
Thanks again.

Your second photo looks like it may be used for cutting a nut off of a bolt or cutting a chain link. It is placed on the side of the nut and tightened down until it splits the nut. I think there was another piece that locked on the other side to hold it in place.

Thanks Dennis,
Yeah...looks like some part is missing.
Nut splitter makes sense.

Would the middle picture tool be for spreading spring leaves for injecting lubricant?
Have seen other tools for that job.
