 Well found this place while researching a new absolute  tool find . I am Ray from SE Texas . I have been the service tech advisor and head tech for one of the largest mechanical contractors in the world . We have installed systems in most  monumental buildings in the Houston Texas area . ( both new stadiums ,med centers and industrial app's.,on the ship channel .) . I just retired a few weeks ago and have more time to devote to my machining and tool collecting hobby . I am a third generation ,plumber ,electrician and mechanical /refrigeration guy and have accumulated an enormous collection of tools and equipment ,some of which I am completely stumped trying to determine there proper  use  .Lol ,thanks for the add

Welcome from the (now) snowy north woods of NE Kansas.  Lots of good knowledge here, and a few good people, as well.  ;-)

Welcome from chilly, but currently snow-free Ohio.   You should like it here.   Post a few  (lots) of pictures of your "whatsits" and some of the experts here (not me) may have an idea what you've got.   :smiley:
