POST15_TOOL57. This metal tool is approximately 10 inches long. The handles have a rubbery red plastic coating. One handle ends in a jaw with curved p ortion with a sharp inner edge. There is a further attachment to this jaw w hich can rotate to create a closed oval shape with sharp inner edges. The o ther side of this attached piece that has cogs on the outer arc. The size o f the circle can be decreased by a ratchet action with the motion of the ot her handle. There is a release that will allow free motion of the rotating part. I have hidden a name stamped on the tool.
POST15_TOOL58. On first look this would appear to be a regular screw driver . However the shaft is split and the width and breadth of the driving end c an be varied by sliding the movable fitting along the shaft. Moving the fit ting toward the driving end decreases its breadth and increases its width.
POST15_TOOL59. This metal tool is approximately 4 inches by 5 inches and co nsists of four parts: a rigid U-shaped part with cut-away portions near th e tops of the U; a threaded shaft passing through the bottom of the U; a sm ooth shaft providing leverage to turn the threaded shaft; and a round toy-t op-shaped metal piece ending in a point attached to the threaded shaft but able to spin independently of it. The arms of the U are rigid. The cut-away portions near the tops of the U would allow it to pass a rectangular piece
POST15_TOOL60. This plastic and metal tool is a little less than 7 inches l ong. The working end has a round opening approximately 1 inch in diameter. The inside of the ring tapers inward and has lightly scored marks parallel to the shaft of the tool.
