KD Tools
I have some tools that my Dad had when he was a mechanic. He retired circa 1980. He later passed on. Anyway, several of the tools are of the "mystery" type.

One tool appears to be some type of pliers. It is stamped KD #435. I've checked all over with Google for KD, but all I find are distributors and cannot find anything even close.

Does anyone know of a source for KD info?

Napa and any other real parts store would carry the K-D line. You'll find that most of what K-D makes is special application or specific use tools. You might try thumbing through a Napa catalog (online?) for info.

Try this one. They have illustrations or pictures that might help.

The Ram-o-Matic grease zerk tool is exactly what I suggested to a guy in another thread that had kingpins that wouldn't take grease. They work killer.

I think that's a cv-joint boot clamp tool for big trucks and 4X4's.

Or a manly man tongue piercing jig.

K-D Tools is part of -Danaher Tool Group-. Their website sucks, but it appears that tool no. has been discontinued. You might want to E-Mail them and inquire as to it's application. Someone is probabaly needing one now...

Yeah, it could be worth a fortune to the right person at the right time. :pain: :D

that looks like somthing that your wife would use to "grab hold" of you if she caught your eyes wandering to much.:pain: :pain: :boxing:

I'm afraid that would leave a mark with those pointed tongs!

FYI, I've spent about 3-4 hours today scanning the Snap-On site for some of the other tools. Most have apparently been discontinued. I did find an updated model of one of them, a clutch alignment tool...that currently sells for $455!!

I may start a "Can You Name That Tool" thread. Some of these things are really bizarre.

KD tool #435
This is an interior door handle removing tool for 1956 Chrysler Corp cars (and no doubt for several other years, I'm sure).
