C shaped washers , like snap-rings, go on shafts to keep them from coming out of bearings. From the size of the tool, probably for the end shaft washers in a transmission.

Probably still a usefull tool for someone rebuilding classics...

Or for "C" washers in a rear end, or on a brake system.

Strange twist. Hinkley Myers was associated with (part of?)  Dearborn Equipment, maker of all kinds of special Ford tools. But Hinkley eventually ended up as a division of Kent Moore, maker of all things GM....

Go figure..

Thanks , we always called them snap rings or retainers. I've done many transmissions , never recall the term.
We call Coke "pop" , to south of us it's " soda" . English is an interesting language.
