Utica fence tool
« on: January 26, 2020, 09:14:05 PM »
Picked this Utica tool up today.  Think it would be a fenceing pliers and cutter.  It has stamping  that says "Made To Order".  Also a "B 280 stamp".  Could not find a tool like this on internet, especially with the notched handles.  Maybe the odd handle is the "made to order" ? Any thoughts?

I don't know the specific use of your pliers but I do know they made a 180 and a 300 that are similar to yours. Also I would guess that those handles are user modified as most Utica pliers have plain handles.
A person who could really read human minds would be privileged to gaze on some correct imitations of chaos.

Look at the wire cutter notch & jaw form in patent no. 942,504 [ ]  The handle form is not typical UTICA style.
