Title: three more photos
Post by: Berryb on December 10, 2019, 09:37:56 AM
1st photo: an Erector set wrench
an unmarked presto-lite key
a double end screwdriver marked "B'P'T HDWE MFG CO."  I think it's Bridgeport hardware.
a double sided Stanley Yankee ratchet screwdriver.
unknown item. other side says "Lehigh Portland Cement Co." It's 1/8th inch thick. Any Ideas?
next photo. Brass:
K&E plumb-bob 5 7/8 inches long.
Harwell, gas key?
Horton Brasses, triple wrench.
unmarked solid brass glass cutter.
Last photo:
McBee conductors ticket punch.
Starrett 5 1/2 inch music wire pliers. There may other applications depending on the jaws installed. The jaws on  this say "for music wire".
unknown tool marked "Germany". the only thing I can think of is for bending wire or crimping sheet metal. It makes a bend a little tighter than 90 degrees.

Interesting glass cutter in your second picture, I've never seen one like that.

Lehigh Portland item is a mason's string line pin, you can find many different ones advertising many different cement suppliers & manufactures.

I once cut glass for a living and have never seen or heard of a glass cutter like yours.  I would like to try it!  Have you tried it?  (Dip the cutter in mineral spirits and brush spirits on the glass also.)

Al; you're right about the glass cutter. I have never tried it but I will. Most of my attempts at glass cutting leave an "ear" at one end of the cut. The attempts to remove the ear then end in disaster. But it's been a while so I will try again. Thanks
