Mystery Tool Monday: Roper Clamping Pliers

How hard do they clamp? Not hard enough to hold anything of consequence but plenty hard to make you wish you didn't clamp your thumb as a test. The quality is top notch and very nicely finished, with the casting marks ground smooth and a hardened bolt holding it together.

What is it, and what is it used for? Do you know? Email us!

About Mystery Tool Monday
Each Monday, D+R will present a new mystery tool for identification. It may be from our collection or may be an item that has puzzled a D+R reader but, whatever the case, its mysterious use will be as thrilling as a Mickey Spillane dimestore paperback.
