You got it.Differential housing welding fixture?
Well I guess I’m not as well rounded.Nothing on the little punch or wood blocks yet, huh? Is the band stumped? Can’t be. These tools are not that uncommon.
Masons actually use them….my uncle was a brick mason & I worked as a pre-teen thru high school helping him build houses in 70-80s. I was his “mud man” as he called me; job included erecting scaffold, keeping brick supplied on walk boards, preparing brickbats, & of course mixing hauling/lifting mortar up the scaffolding (aka “mud”). I was given a few of his tools when he passed a few years ago; I’ll post pics later to see if some of them look familiar.I’m not sure bricklayers actually used these. I kind of wonder if they weren’t promotional items. A trinket to put a suppliers name on.
Back in the 80’s I did part time machine work figuring out how to do cut-a-way engines and other industrial displays for an exhibit company. We did all kinds of crazy stuff. Thats where I learned about press in zerks.
First one is Brick TongsAnyone recognize these? Should be pretty easy…I’m running out of “oddball” tools to show; I can think of one more, will snap a pic for next post
