Default What is It?

This tool is another scrap yard find. I have never seen another and I don’t see any stamped figures on the surface.

It has three actions that work independently as shown in the pictures.

A technologically advanced society would teach their children how to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together before teaching them how to use a lighter.

With just the one picture my first thought is it reminds me of an emasculator/castration clamp like they use on horses and livestock.

I'm pretty sure with the stamped handles, it was made by Lisle et all.

I'm thinking I've seen it for the leetle pieces holding a engine valve
and spring together.
The "split collet" looking pieces.

I just noticed I posted two of the same picture. Here is a different one.

The tool has oily dirt on it as if used for something in that environment. It definitely seems to be for a specific application.

Are the ends magnetized?

Yes that’s what it is. For some reason the stamped figures are on the web, probably because it was easier to back up the punch there. I discovered them after cleaning it up a bit. If you look close you can see it is made by KD.

I never knew there was a tool for installing keepers.

Scoutcrafter on youtube just did a restoration on an old "auto wrench", that was marked KD. Elsewhere on the handle was the whole company name, King Dick. No wonder they now, only use their initials.
