It’s a old tool used in the veterinary field for removing the K-9 tooth of a dog.

Nice group of speeders there and the sliding bar too! The Lectrolite wrench is neat.  The drill is very gizmotic.

The Plomb breaker bar is a very early version. Dating from 1920’s to mid 1930’s. The Blackhawk T-Bar is from the mid 1930’s as well.

Plomb 3050 and 3548 Wrenches.  These monsters followed me home from an Estate Sale.

An Indestro Super deep offset #742.  1/2-9/16. Not in great shape, but they are unusual.

Excellent finds Yadda!

I found a couple of the double open end Plomb wrenches just like the one in the last picture. Mine are very pitted but I removed all the rust on one and wiped it down with WD-40 to help keep it from rusting. I know WD-40 is not ideal for rust prevention but it will help in the mean time. The larger DOE Plomb has not been cleaned yet because I don’t have a Tupperware large enough to fit it in to use Evaporust on it.

Vise-Grip
« Reply #43 on: October 23, 2018, 05:29:37 AM »
Many older welders in the US lament Vise-Grip pliers moving to Chinese manufacturing.  I'm not one to quibble about these things, but I do know that any US manufactured Vise-Grips I find at $5 or under is worth the price.  They are well made and will last several lifetimes even in heavy use. I picked up this one at the estate sale Sunday.  It is a 10W.  I bought it well below my established purchase price. At least 50 years old and probably 60+. The insignia on the back. Petersen Mfg Co, Dewitt, Nebr., U.S.A. Is the inventor/company - Petersen Manufacturing Company, The town and state- Dewitt, Nebraska, and of course the Country- U.S.A.

Thanks Cap!  :hatsoff:
I keep threatening to buy a three gallon Evaporust with the basket.  Great stuff for removing rust.

Now that I know about Evaporust I will never not have at least a gallon at all times. The stuffs amazing and has perfectly cleaned more tools than I can believe. It’s quite literally saved me a backache.

Who is the maker on that large ratchet? Also, I think it was taken apart and reassembled backwards. I believe the switch should be on the back?

Who is the maker on the stubby ratchet? That is really neat! Also the Bonney extension.  Is the male end malformed or is it a wobbly?
