Can you guess what these are for?
« on: January 22, 2003, 08:27:58 AM »
I found this pair of plyers in Dad's basement.


I am almost positive I know what they are for, and I'll tell you tomorrow if you havent already guessed it. ;)

Here's another view,



Hint, I posted it here because that is what it is for.

No, I don't have a hat to give to the winner, just prase and admiration. ;D

Looks like a sawset for a handsaw to me.

I would hazard to guess it is a tooth setter as well.  I have a couple pairs of varying sizes and types.  Along with this you need a heighth/depth gauge to file off the tops to the same.  Yo go one sied all the way down, turn the saw around and then do the other.  If that is what it is!  JB

 Well that was easier than I thought.



This is Dad's saw and he said the tooth set plyers came with it. The saw is a Disston model DD-100 3.5 Hp. and the engine is made by Mercury. The plyers are also made by Disston.



I don't intend to get it running again, even though Dad says "it ran when I parked it" I'm just going to clean it up and hang it in the rafters.

I would dump a good bit of oil down the carb and pull the starter till oil comes out the exoust so it wont rust inside on you, my Dad caled that "pickleing" a motor for storage.   Then cleen it and hang it like you say.

I was close, but not exact.  I would assume it was for a hand powered saw, like a big buck saw and not a power saw.  Glad to see you are going to keep it up nice and not junk it out.  I am a little nostalgic, but I have to have it running to be completely happy.  It does not have to cut wood, just run so I know it is still "alive".  Course my garage looks like Ft Lauderdale, there all alive, but you would think they are dead from looking at them!
