I guess these fit here, barb wire pinchers
« on: March 10, 2017, 04:26:29 PM »
Sorry for the poor pics, I take them on my phone and reduce the size while emailing them to myself.  Found these about a year ago. Picked them up and spent a little time figuring out exactly what they were.  The datamp link says they were not known to be produced?

If you click the "report data errors and omissions" link on the DATAMP page it will take you to the email of the steward who is responsible for those items. Send him a picture or two and he will post them and correct the entry.

I would take some new ones that aren't so fuzzy. They can deal with the pictures as they come from your phone.

Thanks for the advice.  I realized it had been a while since I cleaned the lens on the phone, made a big difference and I replaced the pictures.  Also if anyone knows of a good place to get the smaller staples that might work better for the tool, its fun to use but the full size staples I have don't work so great.

Cool! I've never seen that one before. Looks like they are in great shape too, especially for being 140-ish years old.


But what does it say on the handle there, right before AUG 10 75? I can't quite make it out?

D & B PAT AUG 10 75   for Dobbs and Booth  It appears both sides are identical and cast in the same mold, they have nearly identical casting defects in the same place.  These just about got me in to collecting barbed wire.  I didn't realize that most frontier fence was first smooth wire and tools like these were made to barb existing fence.  Also they are about 12" in length.

  I think that we called the small staples, "chicken wire/fence staples.  check in at any farm supply store.

  do you have a tractor supply store nearby ?

There are Tractor Supply stores an hour in any direction. Went by one the other day and forgot to stop, as there were a couple other things I was wanting to look for.  We have Farm and Fleet here.   Lucky to find regular size fence staples at some of them.  There is an independent place (best hardware store left) near work.  They probably have some hidden somewhere.

Looks like I accidentally bought some staples that might work today. They were in a set of parts organizer bins. Will take some pictures if they work.

He did, & I did, & the DATAMP entry is now much better for the extra info.  Thanks, guys.

So your going into the barbed wire fence business?
A person who could really read human minds would be privileged to gaze on some correct imitations of chaos.

  I can't imagine how long it must have taken to "arm" fence like this.  Even the smaller homesteads out west would have had a mile or two of wire.  I would hope they had softer annealed staples too.  Not to mention barbed wire doesn't do much to slow down the determined livestock I have anyway.

Yah that would be a winter's work just making enough wire to fence in the corral.
