Hi guys

My local RFD has had this thing hanging round the shop for a while now, (he found it lying around in the back of the shop) and has no idea what it is. Wondering if any of you guys know?

It may be farming related, honestly have no clue. Can't find anything like it on google...

It has a handle about a foot long

Regards

Steve


What was his shop prior to his taking over?

It looks like some sort of blacksmith's bending tool. Has he tried putting some metal rod across those hooks and operating it?

It makes me think of a tool that I encountered in my first job. It was for handling oil drums. You hooked the lip of the drum and the handle was a lever to tip the drum over or pull upright.

Any marks (name, pat. date) on the handle?
