Shotgun shell loader, missing the crank handle. No markings anywhere on the tool.
No crimper though, need to find one now. From what I found I need to find more items to complete this set. However, now I want to find one complete with the crank handle.. :-)

Measurements of the shell barreal are 7/8 wide 1 3/4 long.

Unsolved Mystery

Help us close this case. Add your knowledge below.

    want to say sausage stuffer, but doesn't look right for that, let me think on this one. LOL

    The missing section may be the key to this one..:-)

    The more I look at it, I want to say Bottle corker.
  4. heidinors heidinors, 5 years ago
    That is what I thought at first, but there is no place to put a bottle, the end to the right is completely closed off by the black cap type thing, and it is not removable.
  5. heidinors heidinors, 5 years ago
    maybe a cork shaper? I know sounds silly, but it has something to do with shaping I think.. I have even done an image search and it found nothing.. I am still looking though.
  6. heidinors heidinors, 5 years ago
    If it is any connection with the majority of his collection, I wonder if it is a shotgun shell loader.. I am looking now.
  7. heidinors heidinors, 5 years ago
    YEA.. I found it..
    It is a shotgun shell loader, it is missing a hand crank to the right.

    heidi -- your just getting too dang good at this -- ok -- what's next
  9. epson233 epson233, 5 years ago
    heidi -- would you mind taking a look at my "what is it" i think it is a spool threader but not sure -- maybe you'll have better luck when you "bing it" thanks

    oops I'm getting old and stupid, lol Sorry Autumn, I have "Brain Farts"
  12. heidinors heidinors, 5 years ago
    Sorry, for the delay, Epson.. I am still new to this. I do not see a link "what is this" am I missing something? :)

    hi heidi -- will let kerry recover from his brain fart -- i think he has his fireplace stoked a little too high -- 83 degrees and even the lizards start seeking the cool rocks -- i am reading through the strings on this posting and laughing my ass off -- one always has to remember that our members are all over the time zones -- keep a world wide clock next to my computer that i can crank to cities and country locations -- helps me not showing up stupid

    i am also a newbie to cw as a member heidi -- but they have brought me along strong -- of course i am no wall flower when it comes to asking for the order -- always try to do it with a sense of humor-- as the girl scouts use to say -- you will not get the order unless you ask

    I love it, everyone is great.. I love the fact of us all spanned across the time zone. I am on my phone most of the time, so please forgive me grammer. I am so glad that I choose to research grandfathers items. You all have brought a much needed smile to my face.:)
