Havent  bought a bunch that big in several years.  Did stumble on a 4 in. Diamond adjustable,  some more Fuller to round out a set I was gifted in 1966.  And in a handful of smalls at a junkshop, came up with a Berylco combo open end.  Plus the uusual Proto, Barcalo,  S&K stuff.

I have to wonder:  What kind of people stop by the Resale for a considerable time and do not buy this draw knife?
And why would any person in their right mind throw it in the skip?

many of the people working the store are volunteers and don't necessarily know spit about anything.
I'm not the boss (ask my wife).
sometimes things get put out (like the 8-10 braces that have been on the shelves recently), and other things don't.   again, not in charge of it.
receiving gets stuff and is supposed to put it in bins to go to the different departments, but sometimes (apparently) decisions get made.   I've brought home two floor lamps recently that had
been out on the floor (they actually still had price stickers on them) which someone decided weren't selling so....out they go.   
honestly, i used to see all that stuff come in as our area was receiving in the old store, but in the new building it's a separate area and i (or the other guy) don't always see what comes in before it hits one of two dumpsters or our recycle bin....  which is where he found this tool.

I worked in a glass shop but never used a tool like that.  But I can see how that could be a point driver.  triangular points would load into the chamber,  the blade would push them into the wood frame, then the spring would reset and another point would load.

Vaco and Masterform made plierenches in the late 60's and 70's before the company was sold to NOPAK in 1980.

The one in the pouch is dated 54 and another one I have is dated 59.  Now I have another one that is marked Vaco plierwrench and is the same as both the 54 and 59 except for the markings and the plastic on the handles.
