mystery tools or parts.
« on: November 19, 2021, 10:07:17 AM »
I am stumped by these two tools that where salvaged from a scrap bin and despite searching I can't find anything so I am now trying here.

Number 1 has the markings ZG+38 and under that 2830B on the "front plate". when you press in the stop bar that protrudes forward the front plate pivots to an angle (I have shown this in one of the pics) I am assuming a round cutter is mounted on the front plate and the best guess I have is that it could put a undercut inside a bore.
Turns out this life c**p is just one big distraction from death but a good one. For the love of god dont give yourself time to think.

Number 2 I think is only part of a tool because the "stop" I have circled has no function as it is. there are markings on it which read "No.00HA B&S mfg co. Prov. RI. USA" which I have found refers to Brown and Sharpe.
The front plate pivots and is spring loaded.
any ideas?

I found a few pictures similar to No 2 labelled Boring Tool Holder.  Googling Brown and Sharpe Boring Tool Holder will find some.

Common sense is unfortunately not as common as its name suggests.

I wonder if No 1 could be a clapper box type arrangement for cutting keyways?
