    Bruce,
    I like the no corrosion/no sparks angle. And I agree. It's not been used much, if at all. Barbs are sharp, and undamaged. I also agree it's some sort of slide hammer. Though in this case, the hammer effect "pushes" rather than pulls.
    Happy Holidays,
    Jules

    It must be a bearing or seal puller. Maybe a specialty tool from a now defunct auto maker. Here is a pic of a puller for a Ford tractor trans.

    Agreed. I think we've basically narrowed it down. Would be neat to know it's exact application though. You know. In case it's a muffler bearing puller on one of the Apollo Space missions.....

    No doubt, an equally important supply for space travel.....

    Interesting find jules! The collar with the tapered fins is to center the device in a round hole or pipe. The jaws appear to be
    capable of expanding or collapsing by turning the threaded shaft. The ends of the jaws appear to be threaded or ridged to grab
    a specific part. See the longitudinal ridge opposite the threaded sides. That's a brace to insure the jaws don't break off
    during use. I agree that it's probably for use in a flammable or explosive environment or with a magnetic component. The
    jaws may not be brass but beryllium copper instead. Alloying copper with beryllium creates a non sparking rigid metal
    that can be used for springs cutting tools or prying hammering/applications. I'm going out on a limb here but I believe
    this may be a tool for arming/disarming some kind of an explosive device. Or perhaps for installing a new seal in a valve
    in a petroleum facility.

    Best wishes!
    Phil

    I'm with Cudamark and Bruce R. It is a specialized bearing puller. I have used a similar type way back in the day before the wheel was used.

    Greetings, not so long ago I organized my plumbing business. There is a task to reduce expenses while maintaining trade. It is said that the helpdesk systems are the most vivid example, the introduction of which allows to work more effectively with clients and partners, automate the processes of filling out applications, create a package of documents, etc. And what about managemart this software? Is it worth buying? What can it offer me?
