When I bought my Hercus lathe, this came with all the bits ans pieces.
Does any one know what it is?
This bit slides back and forwards.

The curved pointy ends look like o ring removal levers. Maybe a hydraulic cylinder servicing tool.

A three part, folding whatsit?
A little more seriously, could the curved jaws be intended to tension a wire? But, then; what is the part with the sliding part for?
The mystery deepens.
Someone MUST know

I could use it with great pleasure on drivers of cars with the windows wide open, 150W music playing full blast and an exhaust you can stick a coke can up!
I am glad I am not a grumpy old man yet!!

Has the ring of confidence, I guess the slider stops a wire, blade or pin slipping out when leverage is applied. It's too small to be for fencing wire, maybe it's for adjusting a band-saw or drive belt tension mechanism.

Do a search for Pat Pend get her email and ask her. It's an unusual name you might get lucky.

Does it belong to Professor Pat Pending? Who drives the convert-a-car in the Wacky Races.
