Any old timers here know what these two cast iron blocks with a shaft and bearing running through the center was used for?Looks like they were at onetime mounted vertically.it was in some stuff in my barn with some automotive stuff like this valve lapping tool and valve keeper tool.

Look like a bore hone, of some sort.

At first glance I thought it was a Henway but probably not. Many of the old toolage I've run across over the years have been homemade by some guy who need a tool for a specific purpose and the Local hardware store didn't have it so he made it.
My father gave me a 100 year old violin makers tool/ chisel set and half of the tools looked to be hand crafted by a guy who couldn't find one--so he made one, Just 50 years ago there was no "interwebs" where you could get anything you wanted and pay with Paypal or any other "invisible money"---Whoa, I got off topic in the off-topic section Basically I don't know so I probably should not have posted but I did anyway, my best guess is a Henway.

It looks like you have a pair of vintage flybar paddles for a two-piece 6mm flybar.

Have no idea what that stuff is.

I also thought they were paddles for the concept before they went to aluminum with the foam blades.Wow what were they thinking then?

Writing on the brace gives it away...

It is a valve lapper and cylinder hone. It is missing the valve holder for lapping from what I can see, but 2 block carried the hones for the bores. Back in the day they would use a lapping compound, and spin the valve to seat the valves into the head. It made for a better seal between the seat and the valve.

Spinning the valves is not good , a valve lapper "oscillates" , and every few oscillations you need to lift the valve of the seat - with the suction cup
We still do it with a suction cup on a dowel and then oscillating it between the hands similar to what you would do with a stick in the woods to start a fire .

That's exactly the way it works when you crank it,it doesn't spin but oscillates.

If you want to see what parts it may be missing and or the inside view, try a patent search.

here is the info i found on the Ideal valve grinder. its a valve lapping tool for Ford flat heads, able to be used with the head on, because it has prong attachments that go in holes in the umbrella of the valve. page 23&24

https://books.google.com/books?id=v...angeles&f=false

the other two identical parts, im having trouble identifying. Ive asked a couple of my senior machining buddies and we havent come up with a definitive answer. Closest thing i can say is they are some sort of align hone or inline reamer, possible for lifter bores or valve guides. Not exactly sure, ill keep digging though.

We had a rod honing tool in the 70's that was from the 40's-50's that had the grey parts but stones attached to the sides that were almost identical.

I used it hone a hodaka 100 cylinder in 1979

I've been trying to find the end of the internet, looking for info on those two pieces. They share a feature of that Ideal valve grinder, and that is the clevis end with spring in it. The body of those cast iron pieces mate to something. I know brokenlink mentioned that. They look so familiar, just can't remember where I've seen them.
