Nope, not Pyro tools, although I have just found some more that I had forgotten about!!
Also just taken some pics for Pauluk to upload to the discussion forum. Pics of what used to be done in 'the good old days' and one a lot more recently

Trimixleccy,
Are these tools something that could possibly be used here in the states? [Linked Image]

To be perfectly honest about their use in the U.S. I have no idea! I will have to be a bit cagey here so that I do not give the game away..... I assume that you have a similar situation there, as we do here, which would warrant their use. [Linked Image]

I will come clean tomorrow about their use.

Am I allowed a second guess?
For turning the knurled rings on old light switch face plates?

It's for grabbing duplex receptacles while twisting them around so they're U-ground-UP! No, wait, wrong side of the Atlantic...
Don't you mean twisting them around so they're U-ground DOWN?! [Linked Image]

Geoff was right first time, it is a shade ring holder. For those of us with large hands/fingers it is not possible to reach within narrow shades to remove the lock ring so that the shades can be removed. The lamp is removed, and either of the 2 tools locked onto the ring, this is then unscrewed and removed. Simple really, but I have never seen any others. Obviously now that Geoff has had a second guess, his first guess is now not admissible, so there are no winners hey ho! [Linked Image]

... My first guess was going to be that they were an Obstetrician's tools...so much for that idea...
