second from the left is a hand vise, often used to hold small items while cutting, filing etc that were too small or difficult to hold in your hand. The open end wrench (far left) may have fit a specific fitting or nut etc or may have been a general purpose wrench.

My uncle had one of these that he called a Third Hand.

Dawg, please pardon the hijack.

Here's an old tool that I've had laying around for quite awhile. Has anyone seen one of these? What is it? whats it used for? I have it sitting next to a pocket screwdriver for reference.

Thanks

Sadly I have an old tool problem. I buy them at swapmeets, online and even antique malls. I use them everyday at work, then use the rest at home, even have old equipment. All my tools will out last me and go to someone else.

fabieber is starting off with a positive reputation.
The tool on the bottom is an adjustable wrench. You simply open the jaws, put it over any size nut (within its opening range) and whether tightening or loosening, when you push down on the handle the top teeth grab and lock the nut between the top and bottom teeth. It is quick in that it automatically adjusts and grabs much better than a crescent wrench. I actually use the one I have quite often particularly in tight spots where the crescent wrench can't grab as well.

When my dad died in 1990 my brother and I were tasked by our mother to empty his little woodworking shop. There was an unfinished table leg in his wood lathe. I still have it...will always keep it and it seems like yesterday when I found it. Great memories come from things that are practically worthless to others.

Yup, the objects probably have little value, but bring back strong memories, and that makes them priceless. Which is why I still have all of my dad's tools, old trucks, and even the hat he wore.....
Call me sentimental I guess.

I just got another one, a 1928 south bend 9" junior. I still have to put the drive belt on.
