    Same thing. Once you've started to pull the nail you put it through the hole to get more leverage and finish it off.

    I don't remember this one. See if this fits in it. It might be a grommet press.

    This one has discoloration from a torch. It must be to hold a pipe in place while you solder.

    no...im going to have to put this one back in line as stumped.
    its not discolored by fire. the metal is dark and not part of the tool. 303 said snap ring. im going to have to relook at that. look at the clamp area. in closed position, it is still open. look at the claws. hmmmm.......
    found some markings on it. K-D NO.430 KO MFG CO, LANCASTER PA

    Isn't that a hose clamp crimper? Not the unscrewing type, but the single use type.
