A hand held tool or device, see if you can guess what it is.

This is not an official Mystery Tool, it's just a fill in while we wait for Thursdays answer.

Looks like pliers used to remove and install the spring on automobile drum brakes!

It's a tool for removing and installing springs when you change break shoes.

A better question is: is that blood on your workbench?

Ridgerunner is the first to get the right answer.

I did'nt think that there were that many that came close to brake shoe installation.

Removing the springs with a regular pliers did have a tendency to draw blood :D

Not sure about the red on the workbench, not my bench, my friends. My bench is covered completely with stuff. I am trying to work my way over to it to clean it.

It won't get done this week, I'm in the process of getting set up for a big holloween campout weekend. This is my wifes big family get together. This campout is at a local forest preserve campground. The entire 60 sites fill up by Friday evening. Tric-or-Treating is on Sat. nite, kids galore get to trick or treat in safety along the oval shaped road that goes around the campground. I'll take some photos and post next week.

My tent is on a site already. I spent last night there and will do the same every night till who knows when :D
