its some kind of combo wrench. but for what?
it looks like a shock absorber wrench. it holds the shaft stationary while you either tighten or loosen the nut and washer that hold it down.
i have the sockets that look like this. looks to perform the same function a little differently.
Odd. Does one socket swivel around the shaft?
no. but the top one seems like its loose and is adjusted by a allen screw.
what part of the shock needs a wrench?
Is it pronounced "wrench" or "ranch" ? When I was a kid, they would say hey kid fetch that 9/16s "ranch" over here. I grew up never knowing? So sad.
it looks to stay stationary. just two different sizes at different angles.
it fits on the end of the oval shaped end of the shock absorber on the bottom.
Maybe for a door closer?
here is the socket in use.
K-D 2333 tool for shock absorbers. Axxe was right.
bingo. is it for removing them or adjusting them?
Bobski... where do you get all these gizmos and doo-dads?
I like this. The wife and I do a lot of flea markets and antique stores so I'm going to have to start keeping my eyes open for strange and unusal item for show and tell.
it goes back decades.
when my father died, i had the job of clearing out his workshop. its still ongoing. i refuse to get rid of anything unless i know what it is or if i need it.
the first 290+ mystery pics were posted on gunbroker forums....until the morons over there banned me after 11 years of loyal membership....for a comment made on how gb appeared to be modeling after ebay and that they were passing the cost of their truck racing team off on its loyal members. i also made comment on how they allowed soft porn on their website and half naked booth babes at the shot show to promote their website. its why i wont buy or sell on that site ever again.
Are the sockets different sizes?
If so, I'd say a water or gas valve wrench.
If they're the same size, I don't know.
for removal or installation. most of the older shocks would either use a lock nut or a double nut to hold the shock in place. the tool just holds the shaft so the nut can be tightened or loosened.
thanks. in the garage it goes!
