    MAybe a thread for identifying tools or whatnot? I didn't put it in "tools" or wherever, in case there are non-tool things people want to find out about.Anyway.

    This looks like a thing for nibbling triangles out of something that has a straight edge. What is it? What is it for?

    Here's another thing. Maybe some sort of protection when doing something? "Chainmail on a leather pad".

    This is used for metal burnishing or something to do with Blacksmithing like holding hot metal.

    The first object would be used for clipping an angle section to allow it bend.

    Or similarly. Take a piece of flat aluminium, turn a side up by say 25mm, then notch using the tool, then allowing the main sheet to bend .

    Interesting. Do you know what it's called? Used on quite thin section, I'd guess. TYVM.

    Maybe "hand held notching tool". Anyway, great! Now I know what it's for.
