Hey All,

I need some assistance identifying a couple tools from my Great Grandpas box. My Great Grandpa worked for Chrysler in the very early 1900s as a wood worker/mold maker. My Dad decided he wanted me to have my Great Grandpas toolbox so I'm like a kid in a candy store right now.

top image is of filleting tools - a fillet is a concave junction between two pieces which would otherwise meet at a sharp angle. Patternmakers would use these tools to shape leather or whatever other material they would employ to form fillets in patterns.

I noticed today that the object in the bottom two pictures is made of copper. I know people make fixtures for brazing tooling from copper because it draws heat away from the tool blank. I wonder if this is a fixture for brazing?
