  ---What this tool is for? It came in a box of yard sale stuff yrs ago. The c-clamp part looks to be for setting rivets or buttons?? The other end has a mandrel to hold a sewing needle? and I guess thread was wrapped around the little spool. Any ideas??

Guess I shouls have a size reference. It's about 4" long.

Do a little research on "sewing Birds" Or "sewing clamps". Yours is smaller than the ones I was looking at, but you might be dealing with a smaller version, an industrial version, one for leather work, IDK.

The closest we can get in the books is a verbal description that sounds like what you have (ish)image.jpg

  If you look close at the middle pic the large threaded part screws down on whatever you're working on, then the smaller threaded part pushes the cylinder down on whatever you're working on. Thinking on it I'm gonna guess it's for riveting and sewing harness. I honestly don't know, just a WAG.

  I've showed this to some old timers in our small town and they say their dads or grandads had them and used them for riveting and stitching leather harness.
