"What's It" Basic Rules Reminder

 

For a full run down on this project and rules please go to: "The Patriot Woodworker and MWTCA "What's It" project"

  • Only Patriot Woodworker Members are eligible to participate and receive the award.
  • The MWTCA only accepts a verified source to support your answer, so one should be submitted with your answer, such as a patent, catalog entry, tool book reference, or a respectable website on the subject. Do not let these requirements prevent you from having fun and submitting educated answers on the subject without verification, we can worry about references later. All answers are welcome, as well as healthy debates regarding "What's It".
  • If a verified and referenced answer is not arrived at by the end of each month's "What's It" project, a random draw will be performed for a "One Year MWTCA Club Membership".
  • Only Patriot Woodworker's who participate in this "What's It" topic will be included in the random draw.

 

Ok ladies and gentlemen, we now have our "What's it" live and ready!

The image(s) below is a MWTCA "What's It" image for you to research, and tell us all here in this topic post, just what the heck is it!

Leather working...has 4 sizes of hole punches...harness maker's  hole punch

It'd be impossible to punch a hole through harness leather with the scissor action, I believe Steve. Typically hole punches for leather are activated by a hammer action or a plier like tool with punch gears, I think?

NOPE! Someone else wanted to know, but got the same ideas posted above. FWIW, I'm leaning toward veterinary usage, just going by the "G V MACH".

I’d love to see this tool close up and closed.  It may be an optical illusion, but it look like the tines will overlap when the handles are fully closed.  If that is the case, it could be a tool to bend a a fastener like a staple.  What throws me off is that the other end of the tines (points) are small and pointed like the ends of drafting tools.  Here’s the question.......why are the arms bent to allow access over/around an object?

Most likely but what?  Being shaped like scissors it must have been a repetitive operation and not need a lot of force.

I agree, Dan.  It’s making my head hurt.  Maybe an upholstery tool????
