mystery to me tool

Recommended Posts

 Any clues on this tool?  There are no identifying marks on it. It is some kind of hand anvil, I guess. The top swinging piece does have a bit of mushrooming from being hammered. It has been through the local coffee shop and shown to some old geezers. But still lacks a positive ID.

I'm guessing some kind of hand vise for a specific, repetitive task. Part in, thunk with hammer to secure, perform operation, thunk to release, repeat.

The brighter of the two hex head bolts looks to me like a replacement.

 Yes the brighter bolt is a replacement. The square piece it is holding has a small locator pin to stop rotation. I think a saw set would need an indention for the "set"? This tool may remain a mystery tool.......Thanks Guys                      Dave
