Antique Multi Tool Review~ by Old Sneelock’s Workshop

I found a multi tool at one of the antique shops. After a little research I found a description of the tool and an explanation. It was invented by Edgar & Andrew Buell in 1882 & 1883 as a cobblers tool. They were manufactured by several companies including Stanley. The following link will take you to the page.

I’ve seen one with needles inside and a spool of thread? on the outside. The size of the needles looked like for heavy leather or canvas. Good find, Unc!

Great find for a tool treasure hunter and as always very nicely explained.

Some of them had a mini saw blade also, I can’t remember if mine has the saw or if it is like yours.

Would some mineral oil in the holding compartment help against rust?

Hi, I bought one of those a couple of years ago. Mine also has that tool you were wondering about, and I’m too at my wit’s ends trying to find what it was for. The one I have has a little wood saw that needs sharpening and the screw in the gimlet is gone, so I plan to buy a gimlet and adapt it. Very nice, I love it.
