I'm hoping someone can identify this hand tool. Here is what I do know:
- It was made by Stanley
- It may be something used with sheet metal or maybe Wire?
- It would only be used on the edge of the metal.
- It doesn't seem to be used to nibble as it doesn't cut.
- The knob on the front has numbers from 4 to 16 (gauge?) and acts like a cam. as you turn it, it moves a metal piece (a base) that has two sloped edges with a peak in the middle. This piece adjusts up and down to offset the peak.
- There is another round wheel that you can turn to adjust the height of another component that has a rounded top edge.
- Squeezing the handle pushes a metal part that presses against the sloped adjustable base. It seems like it crimps or pinches? or possibly is used to bend. the part that is pushed is about 1/8" x 3/8" and the tip is sloped at the same angle as the metal plate it hits against.
