  1. Not a steel workers spud wrench.
  2. Light socket switch key with extension.
  3. This was originally a peg lamp. The glass peg was meant to go into a candle holder. Someone felt they needed a threaded hole in the peg for a different application. So that is where you are today.
  4. This is for a key chain. At the bottom it says "& RECEIVE REWARD" It should also say RETURN . What is on the back of the medal ? It is so worn from rubbing on keys.
  5. upholsterers tack puller.
  6. Perhaps a house siding gauge, for installation spacing .
  7. Possibly a spare tire lock , but you don't say how long the chain is. Or supply any dimensions.
  8. The first pic is a D18 Beechcraft. My Navy squadron decommissioned the last one owned by the USN. It looks like it is now being used as a simulator for skydivers. Needs a trampoline on the ground !
  9. This is an ignition coil for a one cylinder engine. Probably a stationary farm engine.
  10. The car on the left looks like an early White Motor Co. of Cleveland, O. On the right is American Austin (not Healey) 1930 to 1934.
  11. looks like Hawaiian koa wood.
  12. Yes and, do not go crazy trying to put bushings in the wood plates. After all these years, very few need bushings. Polish the pivots and do not oil the wood.
  13. This is a mechanical pencil.
  14. No, that is fine. It is a tape measure graduated in inches !
  15. What means tyvm ?
  16. Known as pince nez .
  17. This looks like a battery test meter for telephones back when telephones had dry cell 1 1/2 volt batteries. For instance, wall phones with oak cases.
  18. Mechanism for pin stripping . Most were thrown out as junk . Nothing beats a brush and steady hand .
  19. US made, Spanish American war era. The clock dial and probably the movement are replacements. The dial is just a little too small for the opening.
  20. Looking at the label again. Is the label torn off at the bottom just below the right hole ? That is where it should say HUDSON & SKINNER . Their dates were 1825 to 1839 . I base this on examples of ...
  21. A beautiful label. Go to the bottom of the case label and look for small printing Elihu Geer printer. The address is the dating method. He changed addresses every few years and that tells the date. P...
  22. Known as a hollow auger, it is used to put round tenons on wood parts like wheel spokes or chair rungs. The center gauge is the depth stop which controls how long the tenon will be. The gauge is usual...
  23. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=54598225 Just this, you probably know. Henry and his twin were captured by Indians. What a great read. The page is a religious hymn, The Holy ...
  24. Wow, nice ! Pipe aboard the admiral.
  25. NOEN stands for Naval Ordinance Experimental Laboratory located at the Dahlgren Weapons Center in Maryland. The US Navy used these in the Oerlikon gun. A great find !
  26. The serial number has not worn off the dial . It was never there. Remove the movement from the case and find the serial number on the movement. Chelsey Clock Co. is in business today . They have a web...
  27. Drier rack for a cowboys batwing chaps.
  28. Turn it around and open the back door. Take quality pics of the movement and any ID or names or logos. Without more info we can only tell you it is a clock.
  29. That is a scraper plane.
  30. Definitely a shaving mug. Called a coal scuttle. Soap up top and brush below.
  31. Let us get the case writing translated. Propeller protractor.
  32. I agree. Next case.
  33. Swat it looks like to me too.
  34. Google image : Excelsior stove. Made by National Stove Works of Quincy, Illinois.
  35. Not jack in the pulpit but pitcher plants. Regardless, it is a great story and I thank you for sharing it. It is a beautiful piece. Now how do I get it away from you ?
  36. Inner tube vulcanizer for applying patches. Early 20th century.
  37. The standard cap for such a can without a cap is a piece of potato. That has been used ever since we had gas and oil cans. TRUE !
  38. Way to go , Larry ! Good to hear from you again.
  39. As it says, it is for trimming cigar tips. Usually found on counters of cigar stores. Most were made by Brunhoff of Cincinnati circa 1900. Worth more than one would think. Usually had a key fixed on t...
  40. Sickroom vaporizer.
  41. Die stock for holding threading dies to cut machine threads.
  42. This is a Zeiss Ikon cylinder key made in Germany. Actually four keys in one, hard to pick the lock that uses these keys. But in WW11 the allied POWs could do it.
  43. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-DYvQqa27Gd0/TvNCztF5X-I/AAAAAAAABcg/6RbId4I-nX8/s1600/00+Nich+Beaz+catK+pg19.jpg This tool is a cable splicing clamp.
  44. I think the wire wheels are a later addition.
  45. A handle for carrying a hard salami.
  46. For Heavens Sake ! Just GOOGLE it ! there are many videos on youtube to show the machine in action. It had a removable crank the operator used to wind the machine spring. It would run many times on a ...
  47. I answered Hawaiianfinds question. He didn't ask about the truck.
  48. From a penny arcade machine. Made by Mills Novelty Co. known as a Mills drop card machine. It is missing a LOT !
  49. Gas cap for Ford 1926 & 1927.
  50. But the increments on this tool are in pounds. Spring scales are usually in ounces. Perhaps of a different use entirely.
