an original item ??

Postby JHSS-1944 » Fri Mar 31, 2017 2:36 am

hello to all;
just bought this item ; claimed to be an original "factory made" item , a ball peen hammer / crowbar combination tool for, un crating you new slot machine when you receive it.
Totally unmarked & this one is chrome plated (for unknown reasons).
So, anyone heard of one before , or did I just bend over.... ? I didn't pay much for it.

Seller claims to have another one but , in "brass" with the Jennings logo on it. So far no photos of that one yet.

Ha! Now that's interesting!
Usually, you would want to open a crate by hammering the crowbar into the joint first.
Kinda hard to do with this tool. You would need two. Then again, you are not supposed
to hit a hammer with a hammer. I'll just continue using my old hammers and crowbars,
to open all my factory delivered Slot Machines. :lol: But it does make a nice wall-hanger.

. . . . just make sure, if you DO bend over, no one else is holding the tool!
