Default Does anyone know what these are?

Does anyone know what these tools are for? They may have something to do with a "backup ring"

The large silver pliers look like snap ring pliers.... Google snaprings... Cant see enough of the smaller pliers to tell what they are... Try a closer up pic showing the business end of the pliers....

The smaller black one might be a spring compressing type tool ??
Kinda/sorta like compressing a valve spring to insert the keepers...
Good luck...

The larger pair is almost certainly a snap ring pliers. I think the smaller pair is too, but it looks like the one tip is broken. The middle bar looks like it could be a spring meant to keep the tips in the closed position.

The smaller one only spreads. The larger one seems to both spread and compress. My DIL got them in a box at an auction and didn't know what they were

The larger one actually looks like a crimping tool to to crimp banding of some sort.

I'm in agreement that the smaller pair are for compressing valve springs. Cain't see the business end well enough on the big set to say what they do.

The smaller ones are 'bailing wire' binders. Used in older days to make wire hose clamps. You form a larks head of wire on the hose, where you want it, spread jaws to tighten, if necessary relug the wire, and then when tight enough, twist to lock.
