I recently obtained some bookbinder's tools and have some elementary
questions about them as I am much more familiar with printing tools
than binder's tools.

I got several wooden handled (like old police billyclub's) with brass =
wheels on
the end. I can surmise the patterns on these wheels are transferred
to binding materials. How is this done?=20

I also got some isolated metal pieces, which I assume go into
handles like the wheeled tools, but their use is less obvious.

One has a pointed end, which appears to be for attachment to the
wooden handle as on the wheeled tools above. On the other end is
what I would describe as barrel-shaped piece of steel about three
inches long and one inch in diameter.  There is stamping which appears
to read as follows:

J.B. Poole & Son
        78
Duane St., N.Y.

I have two other tools which have the point for attachment
to the handle on one end and a threaded piece like a screw=20
at the tip. One is like a two-tined fork, the other has only one
"tine"

I hope I have described these well enough.

What I am hoping to learn is what these tools are called and how they
are used. Can you suggest any reference work(s) which picture(s) these
types of tools?

Thanks,

Paul Gough
