    Hi there

    Can anyone please tell me what these are? My husband recently died and I'm trying to sort through all the stuff in his shed. I have no idea what most of the things are!

    Any help appreciated.

    Welcome to the Forum Kate,

    Sorry to hear of your loss.
    My Dad passed away recently and I have been sorting through his 1960s Tools. Found good homes for some of them.
    So many Items that 'Might come in useful One Day'.

    I don't recognise the Items but looks like it may be part of a strapping system.
    Sort of thing that might be used to secure Items on a Roof Rack or Lorry.

    My first thought was perhaps a part of a ratchet strap device, it looks like some kind of buckle maybe. It says "hard" and "soft" on it- possibly some kind of former for bending pipes?
    Curious looking device.

  4. Hi, I cannot let these things go unanswered!... if on an android phone tap and hold the picture you uploaded and select 'search with Google lens' or something similar. I done that and found out the items are some kind of chainsaw depth gauge, I think used for sharpening the blades. :) hope I have helped !

    I tried that also, most of the results were related to ratchet straps
