Found in my late fathers basement, my sister sent me pictures asking me if I knew what they were for. With out holding them in my hands and seeing how they worked I couldn't even guess

Awsome, Thank you. My father and grandfather would of used them on saws similar to what Larry posted. They also used a belt driven buzz saw off the back of the farmall cub which may also be where they could of used it

Scot:

Makes a lot of sense. That is exactly what they look like - a little more squarish than the saw sets I have but essentially similar. Might have been used in the northern logging camps way back when -- Quebec or Maine maybe?
