Well specializing in heating and air conditioning for 30 years might have something to do with it.

Here's one you might find at the bottom of your tool box.

What is it and what do you do with it?

That's a pretty good guess. I think it's the ugliest ridge reamer I've ever see though.
Give us a good one.

You'd be surprised how often the ol' Monkey Wrench still gets used.

That mini-english wheel looking thing is something I inherited...I have no idea what it's used for. If anyone knows, I'd love to know.

Ok since I have NO idea not even a relative guess as to what the original quesition is, I think the "mini english wheel looking thing" is used on standing seam metal roofing or I guess any metal overlapped with a seam that need to be crimped together I guess copper also? the seam would be started by crimping pliers and then the roller could be rolled up the seam and tightened until the seam is crimped top to bottom and water proof. That may not be what you have, but I have seen a tool that looked very similar to yours used for that style of roofing before. Is there any name or anything on the other side?

I'll try googling the patent number tomorrow. I have no idea what it's for. The rollers don't have any crown to them, so I didn't figure it was really an english wheel. My (uneducated) guess is that it was for crimping door skins

It came from my Great Uncle who was a mechanic/body man for Greyhound bus lines in the 30's-60's, and all-around handy guy.

Thanks, Carolina, that could well be it. I wonder why one roller is bronze and the other is steel.

496Chevy answered the last official question correctly, the floor is still his.
