We don't know what it is and we're having a men's group and these tools are leading to a door prise.

You might try putting all of these pics in one thread. I have no idea what the tools are.

I merged all the posts together in one thread and numbered them, to keep things tidier.

The first pic got me thinking. at first I thought ice block carrying type thing, but I google imaged that and it's definitely not one of those. Maybe an old fashioned logging hook?

No purpose. They are "do nothing" tools created by a neat old guy in Arkansas for the sole purpose of decorating the walls at all the Cracker Barrel restaurants along the interstates.

....OK that's pure BS. I don't have a clue.

Picture #3 is a venturi measuring apparatus for a downdraft carburetor. I used something similar on my TR-6 Stromberg CDSE's. With twin carbs, they both must have matching intake, so an adjustment is made to make them the same.

Picture #1 is a modified forging tong. What the wooden handle does, I don't know. Probably modified after one half broke and someone needed to pick up twigs off the ground

The others??? Ask Cracker Barrel Nice tools. I love the old ones.
