Remember when power wire was bare and went around small glass and porcelain insulators? Sometimes there would be a short wire routed around the opposite side of the insulator and twisted around the main wire at each end of the insulator. 

That looks like a tool used to twist that short wire back around the main wire or for splicing two bare wires together.

"Knob and tube" wiring. That will stop everything during reno work as we go for the meter to make sure that stuff is dead. Thankfully I've never run into any that is still energized, spooky wiring.

I vote for that it is part of a wench. The bottom is open to put the wire in to control it. The top hooks to the slave band.  8)

I don't know about that rusty thing but I'm certain those are my gloves you've got there. I just laid them down somewhere and sure can't figure out how you got them.   ;D
Have you named your garage gnome?    


Ya know that little guy who moves the thing you just put down on the corner of the welder.  You look high and low, far and wide, in every drawer, under every cabinet.  Then into the house, the shed, the truck, the mailbox, the washing machine, every pocket you own.  3 more laps around the garage usually satisfies him and he puts it back on the welder you looked at 9 times.

He is not always so little. Like the times I've search high and low for a tool I just had in my hand and found it in the other hand.  ::)

Gary, that’s like my teacher in JH. She couldn’t find her reading glasses. Went on for hours. The rest of the class wouldn’t tell her that they were on top of her head!  🤭

Wow, you have a real puzzler there Corley. I've looked over pages of antique tools for this and that and never seen anything close. I'm sure you have to. :D

Maybe not complete, if the 90 deg bar is welded, I think it would fit into a pipe mount.

or maybe the 90 deg bar was supposed to slide (instead of rust welded), then maybe it is a slide hammer, to hit the nibbler on the end, or the puller on other end.

I cannot think of anything vintage that small, other than model trains maybe.. for setting and pulling tiny spikes??

Anybody have a picture of something like this?  Travis is off this week.  Zach is going to tell him it may be a knob and tube wiring tool and to see what reaction he gets from his dad  when he tells him that. ;D

Sometimes a tag team approach loosens lips. And there is also the likelihood he don't know neither and you're doing his research. :D

I know it's a real old story, but I found mine. Patent number 22283789. Filed Feb 27 1939, granted May 19 1942. It's a distributor adjusting tool
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

If nothing else I'm always a good last resort or the guy to hold up as a bad example
