What is it?

Here is a tool a friend found from his late father. We put it at the shop and waited for someone to say "Hey I know what that is" but nobody has.


Can anyone tell me.

I think it has to do with a rear end jig.. There is a v block on the other end. About 4 feet long.

Maybe used for some kind of drive shaft manufacture/modification? I only say that because it looks like a yoke would fit in the hole on the end, and then could be clamped by the bolts, strapped with the leather, and the "V" notch would support the other end. Completely a guess, as I have never seen anything like it before.

Looks similar to an old jig that used to be for renewing old Buick driveshaft c-v joints.

Sorry I didn't get back with you. I was out down at the lake house and didn't get online. I will get back over to the shop this week and take another picture. and see if there is any numbers on it.

the only thing on the other end is a v block. the whole thing is only about 4 feet long.

thanks for all the answers. Mitch
