      Somebody check their old Mechanix Illustrated files. I seem to recall there being plans for a very similar tap wrench. If the OP could provide a few basic measurements, and they correspond to the part in question, that might answer said question.

      Of course, whoever was the boss of whatever shop that might have come out of, could have written up their own plans for an apprentice to follow.

        Nope.... not biting at that one either.....

        It strikes me that with the seemingly high probability that it's a botched tap wrench that you're one handle and a pattern into making another handle and pair of proper blocks and have a nice tap wrench for your troubles..... Hmmm?

              Move the left hand one to the right of the one that is on the right in the pic, but keep in same orientation. Flip the one that was not moved, so that the notches are together. Screw on the handles.

              It will then be all together in working order..

                Sorry J Tiers....I flipped and turned every possible way and they cannot end up like the pic Reggie Obe shows in his ebay link...Keep in mind the two empty holes are NOT threaded

                    Regarding the picture in post number 20:
                    Unscrew both handles.
                    Put the 2 blocks together with the V's facing together, with the threaded holes on opposite sides.
                    Put the handles through the unthreaded/clearance hole side and thread into the block on the 'far' side.
                    Voila - an adjustable tap wrench.

                      Hang on. I'm confused. The photo longrifle put in post 20 isn't the same tool as the one in post 1. The post 20 one clearly is a tap wrench if assembled correctly as Joel describes.
                      Which tool are we talking about, post 1 or post 20?

                          after seeing that photo, I think you nailed it. Grade 9 project gone wrong, big ah @#[email protected]# moment and he couldn't bring himself to scrap it

                            The image in the original post seems to have V-notches on two faces, both parallel that we can see AND perpendicular on the side facing away. Blow it up and look carefully at the edges and the shadow.

                            The image in post 20 appears to have V-notches on the faces that are facing down, again look at the edges and shadow

                            I believe the images in post 1 and post 20 show the same parts, there are just twice as many in post 20 and they are assembled incorrectly. Assembled correctly they make a tap wrench.

                            Not sure what the parallel V-notches are for, the ones that are seen here as an apprentice mistake - alignment perhaps?

                              Hmm. You might be right about the extra set of V notches. Would have been much simpler if longrifle had told us in the first place that he had 2 handles and 2 notched blocks, not just the one as shown in his photo. If indeed there are 2 sets of V notches it would have been even more useful if he'd told us that as well.
