    Ah yes, this takes me back.
    This is an early roller skate repair kit. It’s a special set of tools designed to help you press out the wheels and bearings and then clean or replace them. It’s become nearly obsolete now that most people have moved to in-line skates, though. Skating rinks are pretty much the only place you see them anymore, and that’s only if they haven’t replaced theirs with modern fully mechanized versions yet.
