Now that is the most bizarre looking and perhaps purposeful tool I have ever seen for gunsmithing adjustments etc. What exactly does it do?

If you dryfire a rim fire you can dent the chamber mouth.  This tool irons ot the dent and restores the shape.

Have you seen one close up?

I have one and it appears that if you are handy with a "dermel" and the proper drill blank you can make one. The blank has to fit a chamber perfectly with a little flat ground on the tip so that the blank can be inserted and turned so that the flat "irons" out the "ding"!

The tool in the pic can be used from either the breech or barrel end. A drill blank would only work from the breech end!

Anyone with H'S's need one of these if the hammer is allowed to fall onto an empty chamber!

Cheers,

I had same problem finding the original item with handle.  See link below.  I bought this and it did the trick.  I have a Ruger Mk3 where the firing pin broke and crashed into the breech.  Would not chamber after the rim was bent, but this tool ironed it out and now working fine.  With this one you need a threaded cleaning rod to serve as the handle, and to give it a tap.  It's a little pricey for what little you get but hey it works.  I have no financial interest in the product.

I have one of the tools from Tandemkross.  It did not come with the handle however so I simply used a USGI cleaning rod.  The male threads are the same so you can use it from the breech end.  Depending on the application, you can use the female threads of the cleaning rod and go through the muzzle if you have to. 

If you want it, I would sell it for $20.00 plus a couple bucks to mail it.  I had one .22 rifle chamber that needed fixing so now I don't have a use for it.

Send me a PM.

Thanks.
John.

I would caution against this particular product from this seller.  I bought one of these earlier this year and the one I got was undersized. It would just drop into any chamber and not touch the walls which in turn did nothing for the peened area.  I emailed the seller several times over two weeks with no response whatsoever.  Finally I up just initiated a return which was accepted right away so I sent it back and bought the piece from Tandemkross.

My email to them was cordial and was bringing it to their attention that this one, and maybe their whole batch, was undersized but the lack of response indicates to me that they probably know.
