Thanks Bob!

I've stared at thousands of pliery tools to get to this place. I appreciate the second set of eyes.

Indeed, there is a patent. I don't think we've talked about it.

Man that thing looks complex. Pretty cool that they actually made some though.

New addition to my collection. 1949 Plierench. 8.5 inch version. Maybe for piercing tubing?

Whoa, that's a weird one. At first glance I thought they just added a punch (or whatever) to a standard jaw, but upon closer examination it looks like both jaws are special/unique. Is that correct?

Yeah, and I wonder what it was intended to be used on?

Yep, both jaws are modified. The concave portion of the fixed jaw leads me to believe it is for tubing, but it is just a guess. First one like this I've seen so I bought it.

Hmmm, does the little punch piece appear to be readily removable, or is it pretty well fixed in place? And is the end of the punch flat, or is it pointed? (It looks to be flat in your photo)

Definitely flat on the end. It appears to be removable.

I saw a tool on Etsy today that reminded me of this plierench. It's not a perfect match, but it might be a clue; look at how similar the flat punch part is.

How about something similar to the Singer Sewing Machine Belt Punch?

I totally missed the thread also and have to tell you that's a NICE collection.   I don't believe i've ever seen one of those in the wild.   That other punch looks like a typical Sargent parallel jaw plier that was made for doing holes (very much like the current craft plier for doing holes and eyelets - brand as Crop-a-dile).   Something about those parallel jaws appeals to me.   :embarrassed:

Thank you!

Yeah,  I agree with everyone. Definitely a punch, but for what I do not know....

I paid too much, but I really wanted this one.  This the Eifel Geared-Pivot 1000% Plierench.
