    Unusual tool ID ?

    A set of pliers with compound action . I tried it on several thin pieces of wood . It works best on a 5mm piece of pine . What does S.L. C O stand for ? I haven't tried it on leather yet . I checked Ebay for UTICA tools , and they have some wrenches , pliers , but no ''pressing stampers''? Any ideas ?

    It appears to be a hand press for crimping lead seals of the type used by railroads and utility companies, embossing the seal at the same time as securing it.

    Mojjax, This Is Just A Guess, But It Looks Like A Tool Used To Press The Face On An Overall Button & Rivet. trk5capt...

    Some kind of seal/embosser. Squeeze the [replaceable] jaws on a soft lead fishing sinker or similar and see what the seal is. Looks small for railroad. I was thinking electric or gas meter.
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    Yep I agree its used for lead seals - When I was a young lad growing up in a country store we used to use a similar tool to crimp the lead seals used to secure the mail bags.
