  1. Yes, I guess I agree that the items are probably too small to be hot cuts, they look larger in the photo, I should have posted them at their actual size. Concerning the other device, I don't know the length, someone had sent me the photos a while ago, he bought it from a person who knew nothing about it.
  2. FWIW, I think the device I just posted is for for pivoting something about 30 degrees in either direction, but I don't have a specific answer yet.
  3. I'm running Chrome with adblock, which is possibly blocking the crosscut saw photo, I just went to an incognito window and the saw appears in my post when I view it there. On another forum I'm trying to find out the purpose of the device below. Someone suggested it could have been for holding logs in a crosscut saw, he might have been thinking of the clamp in the photo that I accidentally posted, to me it doesn't look like the same device. So I accidentally posted the crosscut saw since it was already in my clipboard, but it doesn't show up when I look at my post.
  4. Thanks for the replies! I believe hot cuts is correct. The owner said that all of them are the same. Not sure what crosscut saw ausfire is referring to, maybe it was in a different post.
  5. Someone sent me the photo below, he is trying to identify the tools, I think they are probably hardy tools but I'm not a blacksmith so I thought I would ask about them here. His description is below: My son and I are converting an old ironmongery shop in Oakengates, Shropshire (UK) into smaller units. In the cellars we found many wonders, most of which we can indentify. These, however have us foxed. They were in a sewn-up sack, about fifty of them. Obviously they're replaceable teeth for something, but we've no idea what.Could be anything from 20 to 100 years old, but at a guess some time in the 50s from what else we found in that cubby hole. The coin is a British pound coin, 22.5mm dia. (7/8") Thanks for taking a look.
  6. I haven't seen the other two, the owner brought this device to a tool collectors meeting where I took the photos. He said the other two were very similar but since they were hand made they were not the exact same.
  7. Someone found three of these in Pennsylvania, not sure exactly where. I didn't notice any wear marks but didn't really look for any. Thanks for checking your books.
  8. It's about 18" long, here is a photo of it with a 12" ruler:
  9. That's what I was thinking but I haven't been able to prove it.
  10. I'm doing some research on the device in the photos below, anyone know what it is? The owner of it has three of them. I'd like to find a reference for it although I'm sure it's possible that someone just made it from their own design. I have my own theory on what it is but would like to hear some other opinions before I tell it. Thanks for taking a look.
