What Is This?


As some of you may have read in my prior posts, like HNW Tools , I am a tool guy and I am also on a “tool porn” site. It’s a site where guys, mostly, discuss tools (new, old, good, bad, but not the flesh type) and the projects (cars, homes, etc.) they are working on. Some guys are just tool collectors and don’t really use them much. They keep them shiny clean; they’re called “tool polishers” which is essentially the equivalent of masturbating here. They also bitch about things – you know, kinda like here.

Occasionally someone asks “What is this tool?” and posts up a pic of the tool in question. Earlier today a guy posted a ‘what is this’ with the picture below that brought this site to mind. I thought of this site because a few guys thought it may be some sort of antique nipple clamp. So I figured I would go to the experts on such things.

This tool was used to adjust for skim and wobble on the Johnson rods of a 1932 Whipple, however, the lady of the house was in the garage one evening, naked I might add, looking for a new turn on, clamped it on her nipple and invented the Whipple Nipple clamp!

WTF!

    It appears to be used to clamp a sleeve into a pipe, maybe plated. I like the wear on the knurled knob...speaks to it’s vintage...maybe 80’s....since the knurled knob is machine threaded I say it’s for a precision fit used for mating to surfaces...oh god I love shop talk

    .......I’d just put it around my lover’s cock and see what cums up ?*
Very good analysis, thank you. Your usage suggestion is interesting do you need a volunteer?

    When a tool is abused shavings can and will go through the engine. This tool pictured has been abused. When used proper there is no issue. I have built 4 cylinder bike engines for competition ( superbikes, mini sprints, dwarf cars, Legends Cars ) for 31 years and know this 'shavings' aspect very well. Check out the widely used Motion Pro 08-0017 Valve Shim Tool for Suzuki/Yamaha and tell me how that doesnt leave shavings....lmao. I don't use this quick tool. there is a way better method.
    Still baffled about the tool you posted. I went through inventory in one warehouse so and found nothing like it so far.
The Motion Pro type of tool is a lot better suited for working one valve shims.

    Looks like a snap ring installer that slips over a shaft. The grips on the edge of the clamp opening have been tapped on, so I imagine the other side of the jaws are grooved also. Like it was used to install snap rings with an "L" shaped end instead of eyeholes, and they tapped on the outside edge of the jaws to set the snap ring. It may be possible it was installation of a bearing retainer clip in a motorcycle gear case ?
    Another thought was if it was a valve shim installer tool. Some engine platforms use a shim over bucket system to adjust valves. Possible it held the bucket down while a shim was placed on top for proper tappet clearance. hmmm
    I might be wrong, I have bought out a number of motorcycle dealership inventories when they went under and could swear I have one of these special tools. It almost makes me want to pop the locks on a warehouse or two and do some rummaging just to go through the special tools
