Stump The Chump! What Are These Tools?
I like to call this the "Stump-The-Chump" game:
(Chump = Me)
Attached are some photos of tools I came upon for which I don't know the use. (That last sentence has got to be a grammarian's nightmare!)
The one that looks like pliers has a pin that pushes out when the handles are squeezed together. The only clue I can give is that I found it next to a commercial air handler with a ton of dust on top of it. The unit was about 30 years old. That air handler was controlled by pneumatic contactors, if that helps. Maybe a pneumatic fitting tool of some sort?
The second one, my wife inherited in a giant bag of tools. The owner was a Bell System installer during the 40's, 50's and 60's.
When you squeeze on the lever, the rounded, split jaws close part way, but not hard enough to crimp a fitting.
I have no clue about this tool.
So, do any of you folks recognize these? I sure would be interested!
