What is it? (Amateur version POST02)

Hi, I have about 20 tools and will be posting pictures of them. Let me make it clear that I'm no Rob. I do not know what many of these tools are or exactl y how they are used, so I may not provide answers at the end of the week. I will try to answer questions about their composition, size and how they ca n move. Pictures are provide via dropbox.
POST02_TOOL05 https://www.dropbox.com/s/mvmj80xwyqlw50y/POST02_TOOL05_PIC01.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/2jdrk4cf0w2pejo/POST02_TOOL05_PIC02.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/tnu6hk6h11yc7te/POST02_TOOL05_PIC03.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/linbftn9v74tt0c/POST02_TOOL05_PIC04.JPG?dl=0 Thit is a complicated metal tool. It has two pairs of pivot points producin g a large mechanical advantage at the business end. The handles have yellow and red paint on the tips to distinguish them. The handles also have a loc king ratchet mechanism that prevents them from loosening until fully closed and released by a second hard compression. There is an expansion springs b uilt into the handles to weakly force them open. Between the two pivot poin t pairs the the are three paris of holes labeled 1, 2 and 3. There are remo vable pins in the holes. They are in holes 1 and 3 in the first picture. Th e do not affect the motion.
POST02_TOOL06 https://www.dropbox.com/s/tdxp6ye5apr1iur/POST02_TOOL06_PIC01.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/jvxisa6anzwdi09/POST02_TOOL06_PIC02.JPG?dl=0 The tool is approximately eight inches long. It is obviously in the pliers family. It is made of metal with rubber coating on the handles and rounded business ends. It is unclear whether it is used with force applied to open or close it as the handles are comfortable for either action.
POST02_TOOL07 https://www.dropbox.com/s/dzre47fovaf1dv0/POST02_TOOL07_PIC01.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/9pd4n4srm7bwblg/POST02_TOOL07_PIC02.JPG?dl=0 The tool is metal, probably aluminum. The words stamped on it would give it use away. The metal disks fit into the bottom below the compartment. The m oveable lever arm puts pressure on the contents of the compartment. The met al handle fits into a slot in the disks and is used to rotate them.
POST02_TOOL08 https://www.dropbox.com/s/989wuu1mi9kx92g/POST02_TOOL08_PIC01.JPG?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/mopykj22ef0ltwu/POST02_TOOL08_PIC02.JPG?dl=0 This tool is approximately thirteen inches long. The handle is brass. The w hite part is shaped stone or cement -- I think it is natural stone. It is p orous and has small half-moon indentations chiseled into it. The stone is h elp in place by two nuts.

Larry, is there a way to pot a link to all the photos at once? Maybe put them in a folder. switching back and forth from newswatcher to firefox is kind of tedious.

s family. It is made of metal with rubber coating on the handles and rounde d business ends. It is unclear whether it is used with force applied to ope n or close it as the handles are comfortable for either action.

1) Penis elongator?
2) Seems to be a pen repair tool. Page down, about 1/3 the way, to the sec tion on "Odds and Ends Repair Stuff": https://www.pendemonium.com/penrepair.htm

Obviously a crimper of some kind. Possibly for electrical terminals, or possibly for wire rope rigging. The pins likely set how deep the crimp is, for different size ferrules.

Appears to be a Mouli grater, or some variation thereon.
BTW, may I suggest trying to take the pictures outside, in sunlight? The flash pictures don't have great resolution, and it may be a lack of depth of field due to the lighting.

Thanks for all of the informative posts.
POST02_TOOL05     Cable crimp tool. Used to crimp either ferrules or other items onto the en ds of cables. Interchangeable jaws, the pins allow you to easily ID which j aws are where.     In particular, PIDG crimpers made by AMP for red insulated crimp terminals covering 22 Ga through 16 Ga stranded wire. The red colored handle tip sh ows that. The second color (yellow) is for a double-layer insulation versi on of the next size down (26-24 Ga). The older ones were marked 22-16 Ga, but are better restricted to 22-18 Ga, and moving to the blue insulated ter minals for 16-14 Ga, and to the crimper with blue and green handle tips. Th is one is missing the terminal orientation holder, which mounted via the sc rew hole in one of the jaws.     The pins and holes are to adjust how thick a wire insulation is crimped by the extended plastic insulation sleeve -- if the terminals are from AMP, t hey will have a metal liner which is folded back at the entry to offer bett er pull-out resistance for the insulation grip. (P.I.D.G. stands for "Pre I nsulated Diamond Grip", the "diamond" being the shape of the insulation cri mp. And on these particular crimpers, one pin is in hole 1, while the othe r is in hole 3. They should both be in the same numbered hole.)
