Does anyone know what this tool is or how it is used for stained glass?  I got it with a lot of glass and tools I bought and I have no idea what it is or how to use it.  I cannot find it on the Internet at all.  It was made in Germany.  I attached 3 pictures of it.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

It looks annoyingly familiar, but.... I hope some one here knows!

At any rate, after four decades in the trade & craft, I do know that I don't have one!

I wonder if I need one?

I thought it was some kind of a crimper for lead, but I tried that and broke the glass.  So I am clueless.  I also noticed it was made in Japan and not Germany.

I have never seen it before.   Maybe it is not related to stained glass?

 

Boris collects tools of all kinds, ask him!

I thought Boris would be first to respond!  Where is he?  Like everyone else, I am clueless.

I have a photo of a similar tool I am trying to upload....but can't figure out how to?

 

We have a tool very similar that is used for cutting a rounded corner with one swift crunch and then it is sanded smooth. I think this is something similar...

That is not it, but that is an interesting tool!  I have never seen that either.

Could it be to cut lead came along the heart? For example when you need to remove the heart to make a very sharp point.

I do not know, but I'll give it a try with some lead and see what happens.  I'll let you know what happens.

Could it be a hot glass tool? With the "cutting" edge turned to the side it looks like it could be a crimper/gather/cutter for hot glass.

A thought - Could it be a glasier's tool for commercial glass rather than stained glass?

For some reason I can't make the picture bigger, so can't see what I am looking at. Upload the pictures to your gallery

If I could load the pictures in my Gallery I would, but I have not been able to load any of the pictures for a couple of weeks now and I am not the only one having this problem on this site.  All I get are error messages and they do not state what the errors are.  I have shrunk the photos way down and they still will not load.  So I gave up like a few others since no one seems to want to help us figure it out.  I never had any problems before and I can load photos any other place but here/Gallery.  I do not want to join Flicker to load pictures here like some other have done.

Let me see if I can figure out the problem and will get back to you.

Looked at everything I have access to on the Board, and it looks like the problem may be with the hosting service. Will send an e-mail to Chantal and see if she can fix it.  I tried to upload a couple of pictures myself, and even with unlimited access I could not do it.
