Sunday Flea
« on: November 08, 2020, 09:35:00 AM »
Here are a few smalls from the flea, the Wilton Vise is still in the truck!! At top is a clean Vise-Grip 10-WR, next is a 3/8 Craftsman Ratchet with the Flying V shifter, next is a Yankee Tack Puller, next is a clean Stanley Awl. Next is a Hyde Mill Knife, needs a little TLC. At bottom is an unmarked tool that I believe is a Crimper? Will try to post pics later of the Wilton!!

And I thought I had a truly fine tack puller when I found a wood-handled C.S. Osborne puller - that Yankee is great!

Hello, Bill. Thanks!! If you look closely you will see an unfortunate chip in the handle near the end, will not affect use!!. I will post a pic of the lettering inside the handle!!

No hammer marks. Looks like one leg is tapered, so sliding the ring toward the hinge end would tighten the handles. international3414, you have me thinking about a much lager wire twisting tool made by Crescent. I will see if I can find a catalog, and post a pic.  Also a link to a crimper/splicer on ebay.
