Re: Does anyone know what this [odd tool] is for?
I was digging the through an old box of parts that was originally in a bay on the coach and this was in it. Does anyone know what this would be used for?

Put it in a tub you leave at home. Next time out it will become obvious what it it for or not.  If not at least you aren't hauling around scrap iron.

Looks similar to a pneumatic Spike and Pin Driver

Yup Daydreamer got it.
roger is right. You will find a use for something--if you leave it home.
I used to carry a Model T jack in the coach and never needed it. Left it home and could have used it to help G-daughter and husband raise their single...

For the rounded over lugs?  :)
 
I have never used a spike driver, but sure wished I had one when I was driving the multiple 8 foot ground rods with a sledge hammer.

Makes me wonder...

Harder than a baseball bat. Might come in handy.  ;D

Maybe a tire thumper?  I used to see semi drivers banging their tires to make sure they were inflated properly.  Fred Flintstone used one on his rig. :help:

Daydreamer has it but it is for an electric or pneumatic jack hammer.

One of the very few tools I never had any desire to own or operate.    :thumbsdown:

Beats using a pick. Had to extend a sewer dump line for the '81 FT recently sure came in handy.

Just what you need in your FT, Jackhammer accessories.   I've ben in some CGs where pounding in a stake was pretty hard but this is overkill.

I bought one for digging, breaking rock and cement. They work really well but can be expensive unless you either find on used or use the discount coupon at Harbor Freight. It was on special and with the coupon, the price came down to about $300....

Mine is a Makitta and I have had it for over 20 years. Saved hours putting underground utilities to my shop. Concrete and asphalt between the house and shop.

Stake setting tool for circus tents or similar tie downs. Large air hammer. Way more work than I want to take on anymore. Drive stakes right thru asphalt or rock. Great tool to put on eBay or make a wind chime out of.
