Eagle Claw Pliers

This one isn't a multi tool, but I received it with the other two so I'll give it a photo op.

Patented in the early 1900's Eagle Claw has numerous designs including some similar pliers with a hammer function. This is a large tool.  it is lying on an 8.5 by 11 inch piece of paper.

Yeah, that's a big set of pliers alright. Nice! :salute: From what I can glean on the web, Eagle Claw pliers were well thought of and fairly popular. Yet today there really isn't a similar-type tool at any of the hardware stores in my area. So I wonder what application they were used on back in the day, that is no longer needed today? ???

In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools

The uses descriptions I've read mention the notches in the jaw that make it easier to grip carriage bolts.

Carriage bolts as in the ones with domed heads? Or carriage bolts as in the ones used 100 years ago on carriages? (or maybe they are the same thing) :think:

I may be wrong but I've always thought they were the same thing.

My best guess is as good as yours.  I believe the photo you have describes a carriage bolt.  I need to do a little more investigating to see how these pliers would work better with Carriage bolts.

Yeah, that's exactly what I was wondering.
