Would need help to identify some tools Sign In

Hi

I'm cleaning the garage and I have a lot of tools that were to my dad that I can't understand what they are used to. I would appreciate some help to know if I keep or discard them. Here are the tools :

1.



2.





3.



4.



5.



6.



7. (look like to hold something)



8. (I found the bottom 2, I think it's to make internal thread in tube. Top one I don't know)



9.



10. (look like an angular wrench, but what are they used for ?).



11.



12.



13.



14.



15.

Re: Would need help to identify some tools Sign In

Wish they were all numbered. Brake tools, front end part tools, Stud extractor shown, brake spring pliers, crimpers for wiring or cable connections, cable clamps, a tap and die, tool for tire valve stems, bent bar things are brake spoons (a nick name) for adjusting star adjusters still on some items, a timing wrench and another tool that would turn sleeve to center a steering wheel between tie rod ends. One or more pliers used for hose clamps. I think that's most of what's there.


Seems quite 40s -1950s ish and some still fully usable now. One appears to be missing a wooden handle. I have too much junk but know that most things are called vintage up to 75 years old and Antique older than that. Primitive not just age but a class now I consider over 100-150 years old and keep right on going. "Classic" anyone can decide IMO.


If you are looking for prices I'd say not much actually just more of interest. Whole sets of things attract more attention. Most all would be used for automotive uses. Some folks collect and want vintage stuff like that to display but much older stuff is easily available. For live use today better stuff exists for some/most IMO,

They are numbered, 1 to 15. Not sure why you don't see the number.

Number 9 is a battery terminal lifter and scraper.
Number 11 is used to install and remove broken grease fittings.

DS may be right but #11 sure reassembles a tire valve tool.

I don't think you could remove a valve core with it. Here is another pic of a 4 way grease fitting tool. The cut out is for angled grease fitting.

Same - I don't own that exact tool but do have all to do what it does and do it as needed. They do or did make self taping grease fittings but most were threaded and plugged on new cars to be installed as then "Dealer Prep" which was a joke,
