What's this tool used for

Recommended Posts

Picked this up from a car boot sale a while ago, I found out what it's used for, just for a bit of fun any ideas ?

I've not seen that type of die forming blocks before, but the press frame looks very similar to what they have at work for crimping large terminals onto traction motor cables, it has several sets of interchangeable die blocks for different sized crimp terminals and a hydraulic ram is used instead, something like this one:
