Default Guess the Tool

Here's a goody from my tool collection....anyone want to guess what it is? (Hint, it's not electrical, even though it's made by Greenlee)

Tell ya what, it doesn't look like there have been many views yet so I'll hold back the answer.

Guess I'll have to try harder next time, huh?

Greenlee model 515. If you really want one, they sell them all day long on FleaBay for ten to twenty bucks. Just search for "nail puller".

Greenlee made all sorts of things back in the beginning. I see drill bits and chisels at flea markets pretty often. That nail puller is about the biggest one I've ever seen.

I see so many Greenlee taps, drill bits and related items that I figured they still made the stuff.

Its for pulling nails. I scanned the posts, should have read them closer since someone had already answered.

Cool Nail puller

I saw your nail puller and it brought back a lot of memories My dad had one of these for years. and I used it on my first job which was removing nails from a pile of baords from a ademo we did in the 1950's. Thanks for the memories
