    Old tool in my tool box

    This tool has been in my tool box since I was about 12 years old on the farm. Dad got it from a local guy that had been making them for years. i used it numerous times over the early years but it's been just a conversation piece with my kids and now grandkids.
    See if you know what it is.

    This tool and the end all fix all 'baling wire' were used to fix leaking radiator hose connections when a regular hose clamp wasn't available. I don't have any baling wire any more but I have roll of old electric fence wire that I used to demonstrate how the tool works on my old ford car. First I cut a length of wire and form it as the first picture shows. Then you wrap the formed wire around the radiator hose and slide the two ends under the U shape end. Place the tool end in the U shaped end of the wire and wrap the loose ends of the wire around the two pins on the tool and crank the tool handle to pull the wire tight and bend it over to hold the makeshift clamp tight.

    Bailing wire(or a reasonable facsimile), and a cheap, throw-away vice-grip will work.

    That's really cool that he made his own. I wasn't smart enough to make one but I've seen different versions available to buy.

    Like this one:

    Clamptite

    I've had one of these for several years, great for making hose clamps:
