OT: what is this tool?

Unread post by toytron » Fri Jun 30, 2017 12:46 pm

So while going through my tool box I came across this tool I got in an auction box of things.
Does anybody know what it is? What it is used for?

It's a locking clamp,possibly for sheet metal or woodworking.The finger on the handle end would adjust towards the outer end until it contacts clamped

surfaces,then squeeze handle and it will lock down. Similar to a pair of vise-grips.

I believe it is used to insert framing points. Take a look here:

It looks like a torture tool.

Can also be used effectively for removing corn cobs from boiling water!
