Found these specialized Vice Grips at a Swap Meet recently.
I wonder what they were used for?
The Grip ends were dipped in plastic.

Hoppe Super 1/2" Drive Socket set

Found this vintage Hoppe Super 1/2" Drive socket set and case recently.
Good score for under $4 CAD.

The ratchet doesn't work, but most of the sockets and extensions look good.
The majority of sockets are Hoppe brand, 2 Challenger (Canada), the shorter
adapter is made by Armstrong (USA), and one Taiwan socket.

The 7/16 socket must have had a special purpose based on all the
grinding marks to reduce wall size.

Found this in my Dad's tool box. Not sure what he made it for. Maybe opening up barrel caps?
