And to use it, you just jam the tip into the arbor hole, and crank down on the lever. They work OK, kinda a wedge action, so if it's tight, you have to crannk it down a couple times. I'd guess the tool is from the 50's, one in photo is a lot better than the one in the drawer in our shop, former Murray Iron Works, Burlington Iowa.
