They are used in molding to create certain features. You only show two but a complete  set is a whole herd. A lot of them are hand made for doing a particular mark or design.

That's pretty compelling Bill, now the next step in verification? Perhaps contact the pros via email with this topic link in it, and ask them for their opinion? We always get a ton of great ideas with these MWTCA projects, but you guys never go the next step, verification! :D

Those tools were used for glass removal and installation back when windows were held in with rubber gaskets.  I used similar tools myself replacing windows in heavy equipment but back then we didn't take many pictures.  The tools have taken on a high polish from being dragged through the rubber seal.  They came along with stronger thinner tools and these were obsolete.

Eventually a lock bead gasket came out which made more room and the glass was easier to get in place and this tool came out to insert the bead.  Dish soap was used as a lubricant.

Got one of these in a Craftsman  screwdriver set back in the 70's. They called it a cotter pin tool.  Possibly one of the first "Multi-Purpose" tools? :unsure:

Still drives me nuts folks want help to identify something but unwilling to give more than one picture.<_<

You would think he might have separated the two, placed them side by side, used some type of scale to indicate dimensions...

Seems they want to know as long as they don't have to put forth any effort and that 1/1,000,000,000 shot somebody is still using a set of these.

Bottom tool has "US????" on handle...maybe nothing more than USA...who knows what markings if any upper tool may have. Guess we'll never know...

End of...

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
