I have these old snips, one jaw between two so it removes a strip. I think it was for tin knockers and they crimped the end with the side jaws. Any other ideas?

That is a neat old tool. Fore runner to the modern day electric ones I guess.
I have often wondered how they made the locking joints in stove pipe back in the early days. Did they use some sort of rollers to form them???

Most likely they were used to cut round pipe/ducts.

I know what they were used for. I was asking how the locking joints in stove pipe was formed.

My parents had an old hardware store and in the back room was a set of rollers that would make stove pipe from a flat sheet in one pass. But I don't know about the lock joint. I do remember that the end of the rolls were open so it is possible some sort if joint could have been made. That is more then 45 years ago so I don't know. Sorry we didn't keep some of that stuff.

I have seen the rollers to form the pipe also, but never the seam forming tools.

I have plier like tool that crimps the pipe. I would sure hate to do more than 1 or 2 pieces at a time with them. Old hardware store I hung out at in the early 1960's has a roller type tool that you slid the end of the pipe into, clamped it down on the pipe and turned a handle to crimp pipe. He could make you any length of pipe you needed.
