Antique Stanley part/tool identification


Hello,
My father tasked me with identifying a part he acquired. I tried searching what it is, but found no answers. All it says is STANLEY Made in USA. That's it.

You can ask here http://www.papawswrench.com/vboard/index.php You could probably also send a email to Stanley tools with the picture and any Serial or model # info available on the tool. You can also send info to http://antiquearchaeology.com/ which they may be quicker to get back to you on it.

Definitely some sort of crimping tool.

Maybe chain?
