I won the clip and pouch. I wanted the clip as I didn't have one.

I got a couple questions. What is the clip for and how is it used?     :think:

We've got to stop bidding on the same items...  :D.  Great purchase!!.

The clip goes over the fixed jaw when you use the pipe cutting jaw.  The clip helps hold the pipe in place, tightly against the cutter.

I posted these pics on the General forum Throwback Thursday convo.  This is my latest purchase. 1942, April.  8.5 inches with the three standard jaws.

Thanks David!

I'm trying to limit my purchases to sets with multiple jaws.  I have a few exceptions on my wants list, but mostly I look for the sets.  It also helps limit my puchases. :D

Exactly David.  Thanks!


Need to check mine now.  I believe I have this one with one small panel missing.  I also have two others including the earlier staple bound version of this same document that was distributed with the World Flight version tools prior with prices for 1927 to 1928.   

I believe the need to lower expenses during the depression encouraged/forced Eifel to go with a one page folded version instead of the stapled booklet.

Definitely need to scan the World Flight version and the other document.  I believe I have the M7 also.  Will check tonight.   

FYI: Picked up another 7 in with two jaws.

There is a 7 out on the 'bay now with less then 8 hours left for under $30.  The only issue is the tool has someone's name etched on the back.  It has all three jaws and a case that is rough shape.

My brochures are from 1927.  Brochure A and Brochure C.  :think:  A looks similar to  both M-7 and M6.  Will need to look further into this just for personal eddification.

My latest Plierench
Reply #83 on: July 13, 2014, 05:36:23 AM
I've only seen two of these and both were in the U.K.  I was extremely unhappy when the first one was bid out of my budget zone so when this one came along 6 months later I felt lucky to be the top bidder at a price I could afford.  The addition of the pipe type fittings makes this one unusual.  I have never seen a Plierench in this configuration on this side of the pond. The special jaw fittings are attached with screws that can be removed with a hex wrench.  The jaw is removeable.  The jaw only works in one position which is the last geared slot.  Other odd notes include the missing price and the missing year and month of manufacture.  The style and blueing indicate a tool made most likely after WWII and definitely no later than the early 50's.  The seller picked up at a boot sale.  The original owner had no info.  The 'bay seller I bought this from was in Merseyside.  It may have some naval use?  Bottom line, keep your eye out at the car boot sales, you may fid a Plierench!

FANTASTIC! You must be pretty pumped about finally landing one. Congrats! :cheers:

Now wouldn't it be great to know the whole story behind these? :) (what exactly were they designed for, why were they only sent to the U.K., how many were made, etc)

Thanks David!

Bob, you know I'm pumped!  I would like to know much more about this one.  Time to look for some UK tool collectors groups.

I have at least 5 more special versions on my list.  Most of them I've only seen once.
