Title: Utica fence tool
Post by: GaryD on January 26, 2020, 08:14:05 PM
Picked this Utica tool up today.  Think it would be a fenceing pliers and cutter.  It has stamping  that says "Made To Order".  Also a "B 280 stamp".  Could not find a tool like this on internet, especially with the notched handles.  Maybe the odd handle is the "made to order" ? Any thoughts?

I don't know the specific use of your pliers but I do know they made a 180 and a 300 that are similar to yours. Also I would guess that those handles are user modified as most Utica pliers have plain handles.

Look at the wire cutter notch & jaw form in patent no. 942,504 [ http://www.datamp.org/patents/displayPatent.php?number=942504&typeCode=0 ]  The handle form is not typical UTICA style.
