Let's call it dual purpose tool and Say that LostInSpace is the winner also. It's ok to have two correct answers right?

Lost In Space, send me your mailing address and I'll get a stove out to what ever galaxy your in :)

I did send him an email with a photo of the tool. Hope he can help. Looks like he would be well qualified. quite the extensive museum he's got there.

So far I've found these items

http://www.josephmarc.com/page-4746.html

Description:
This is a very unique wide jaw (2" wide) lasting type pliers with a hammer extension or raise square in the top center section, and a tack puller on the end of the bottom handle. The jaws have a grooved slot form, for getting a good grip on flexible material. This tool is marked "C.S. OSBORNE & CO. HARRISON N.J. MADE IN U.S.A." on the handle sides. Overall length is 8.6" long. These pliers are in very good condition, no rust, clean, and snug at the joint. Nice! Rare!

C.S. Osborne is still in business! I didn't see the tool on their website though. It looks like they manufacture upholstery and leather working tools. Might try emailing them the pic, they should be able to have some one identify the tool. http://www.csosborne.com/index.htm :mrgreen:

I need all the help I can get here my friends. I say the tool is strickly woodworking and you guys say farrier/blacksmithing and LIS says Hammer Lasting Pliers. How about you guys sending out some emails also. I need help. Oops, need help here.

I may have a very valuable tool here. The only one of its kind. Can't find another one like it.

Another stove will go out to LIS tomorrow.

Yes, Lost In Space ... spaced out this week! PM is on it's way. May be stuck in the out box.

I have been looking for pictures of a farrier's lasting pliers, but have been unsuccessful. Once I gave up on women with horses, I lost my horsey friends. :lol:

WoW, this is an update to the above quoted update. :lol: :lol: Yessiree, have to laugh at myself. I edited the post instead of replying to it. That means none of you would have noticed the update where Lee Liles said he could'nt see the picture of the tool. I sent him a few more photos and has now seen them and this is what he says about the tool.

Anyway here is what he says: This is how it reads from my personal email.
Brief and to the point. :)
IT IS A FENCING TOOL AND NOT A BLACKSMITHING TOOL,LEE
