Old tools from Italy

Recommended Posts

Goodmorning everybody!

I'm writing from italy in order to show you these cobbler/shoemaker tools. Maybe they are "off topic" in your forum but i hope you can tolerate them :-).

This is a little preview of a big set of 60+ tools i have recently acquired.

The pointed one is marked blanchard, the others have italian marks.

Can i ask you the specific use of each one? have you any advice to clean them from rust?

Many thx in advance and pardon my poor english

Greetings

Paolo

The tool on the left is a fudge wheel used to lay down a design on the welt. The other three are glazing irons and the Blanchard is an overstitch wheel but it is missing some parts.

Hi,

go to youtube and look for rust removal using vinegar or molasses. Cheap method to de-rust steel or iron.

Nice find, I have no idea what all they are, but good luck with them.
