  • Tool identity?

    Can anyone tell me what this tool is. There are no markings on it. Thanks.

    Looks like something to push down or crimp a bottle cap.

      I was thinking that it's a fencing tool, maybe the tool that grabs the double wire loop at the corner braces, pulls the wires across (opposite each other), then lets you spin the wires into a twist, tightening the first post, corner post and brace into place.

        Wine corker was my first thought.

            The wooden handles are about 16 inches long and the cast iron body is about 7 inches long x 4 inches wide. Since posting here someone has said they think it may be a tool for stretching barbed wire and the crimping the twist

              What John said it is a fencing tool and some have a high value for a collector of barb wire. and there are plenty of them. I have sold them for up to $125. in the past.

                4" is too big for a corker.

                    The original request was for the Tool Identity, not tool type or use.

                    That is George. Don't recall a last name.
