I would agree, but then there are some pretty talented metal workers out there. Who knows.

My first thought was for wood turning. But I’ve never needed a shape for any of my turning or common woodworking endeavors. But then again I’ve only been woodworking since 8 am. I still have two more hours to go.:)

I’d say a beading tool for spindles on the lathe.

Where I live it is call a number of things, OSB, waferboard , chip board and a couple I can’t say on a family forum. But does it have Alder in it?

BURYS & Co
CAST STEEL , is that correct?

The logo looks like a full face motorcycle helmet and next to it an Ostrich with its head buried in the sand but surely that is only a co incidence with Burys & Co.

Bill, with a tang like that I dont think it would be a power chisel. (I could be wrong)
Aj2 and DL, My guess is a lathe tool as well. See brackets above.

Maybe Bob Summerfield may know, ... he is a guru on medalions and trade marks..

P.S. OSB is polish for Alder !!
