Rollblitz pliers
Explanation:
Rollblitz clearly sounds like a trade name to me. I have found it on Internet:
http://www3.hoffmann-gmbh.de/german/end/index.htm, but unfortunately there is no descriuption, nor is the english catalogue available.
I believe this is a special sort of plier, where the width of the jaws can be quickly adjusted by means of a wheel or screw-adjuster. Such tools exist, for instance "universal grip pliers" use at screw to adjust the jaws.
