Here's a tool seen on a swedish auction site:

poi

It's described as a spoke tool just over 6" long. Anyone seen anything like it? What do you think it was used for?

Hi Roger. It is a valve spring lifter. That one seems to be Stevens brand.

Thanks Andrew. I scored one among some other bits and had forgotten its application.

Thanks Andrew, can't remember seeing that type before. I understand the use of the sharper end, but how to use the thicker end? Lifting with one end, holding the spring with a screw driver and turning around the tool to keep the spring in lifted position?

Yea, It is a neat tool and fun to see. But that wonderful, aged box it came in and the instructions are too good to be true.
Thanks for sharing these things.
Rich
