Need help on identifying tool parts

These are all from the Bag O’Junk ™ that I gave Cliff - I’m too old and decrepit to remember what everything IS. :innocent:

Should have got the boy a left handed can opener years ago! As I have never seen opening up the side of a can before!

The top left things are to make your vice into metal bender. Put one on each side of the vice and bend.

The other long things look like clamps. The bottom long thing looks to be a inside clamp. With the top long thing to be a fence of some sort?

These are parts of a cheese straightener.

Must be. I suspect most folks know just how much I hate crooked cheese. :innocent:

Thanks for all the ideas, guys!

Rooster, I think you’re closest on the top right thing, but only God knows (and Bruce, if he remembers) what machine it mated with…

Dang Craig, that’s brilliant! The jaws even have (strong) magnets to hold them in place, very cool! Thanks Bruce!

The jinglebobber in the middle has small clamps for something… and a hole that could mount it to a tripod. By why?

Seems like we’re all stumped on the lower right dohickey. A clamp like Craig suggests? Or maybe a hand held finger powered pencil lathe?


They are clamps. I have several just like that.

In the last picture is the swivel button missing off the balled end of the thumb screw rod?

Yes it most certainly is.

Continuing the discussion from Need help on identifying tool parts:

I’m betting I was influenced by the master - hoping some of his magic would rub off on me! :innocent:

And who might that possibly be?

You both are masters, in my book!

Which book?

Someday I hope to be a master myself however only peasants and peons model what I model.

Personally I don’t believe what you say Shifu.


Yeah well Shifu you too and YES I had to look that one up!!!
LSC rules but I still got 10yrs before I have to sign up for medicare which still makes me a peon

Appears it is Rick so now we need to figure out what happened to it and if it is recoverable within a 100 mile search radius so we can get it to Cliff!
(note I said Radius and NOT Diameter)

Just sayin


I got socks and 2 kids older than you.

As an erstwhile pheasant, I object to your language, rooster.

True story! It’s probably unwarranted…:innocent:

SpongeBob it’s not… :innocent:
