2108 Is used to serve wine, the inner glasstube can be filled with
ice to keep the wine cool witout having melted ice in the wine.
2109 Is it to grab golfballs?
2112 Might be a tension spring scale?
regards from .de
It appears to be. The clamp on the end suggests that it is intended for some
I'm guessing it is used to set the pre-load on something. Clamp this gadget
to the object, pull on the handle until the pointer reads the proper load,
then clamp the object down. Question is: What is 'the object'?

2107 Car storage tray, plugs in to a hitch. Often seen with a electric
wheel chair, coolers, dead deer....
2108 In the Hersey's Kiss commercial the inner tube dispenses the
caramel, the larger outer the chocolate. What this one does I have no
2109 Bellow / air pump?
2110 ream of some sort? Barn mounted on a pole / post?
2111 pipe clamp for working on water pipes.
2112 torques'esq device. maybe to check tinsel strength if metal.

I thinking along these lines, some type of tension gauge, I don't think it's
a scale because if you held it while weighing something then the numbers on
it would be upside down. Seems like it was made to be used by pulling on
Indeed...looks like manual tension gauge. The connection was for a
relatively small piece w/ either a hook formed for the thumbscrew to go
into or a ridge or similar one would presume. Otherwise, doesn't look
like would hold too well on just a flat (unless the spring isn't as
stout as it looks and the scale isn't pounds--altho thinking, 25 lbs at
full stroke wouldn't be _that_ much)...
Well made device; definitely a serious purpose but I'm at a loss as to
for what, specifically...
I would say almost certainly not. It's appears to be designed to be used
with the hook end downwards and the knurled screw attached to something. The
key might be in the exact design of that screw end which we can't see. I
would expect there to be a hole, or at least a dimple, opposite to the screw
for the end of it to go into to make a secure attachment to something like a
flat plate with a hole in that.
It would also help to know what the scale is graduated in. Pounds, ounces,
Forget that enquiry. It's almost certainly pounds. I can see enough of the
spring to deduce from scaled measurements of the photos based on your approx
length of 7" for the item that the compression spring has an o/d of about
20mm, a wire thickness of about 1.9mm, 12 or maybe 13 coils with the top two
or three hidden from view and about 2" of travel between the 0 and 25
Putting those data into my compression spring calculation program gives me
a spring rate of about 12 lbs per inch which is exactly what we need for 25
lbs over 2 inches. If the scale were in ounces the spring wire would need to
be much thinner and for kg somewhat thicker - about 2.3mm although that
might just be within the limits of uncertainty based on such approximate
2107 is a hitch receiver luggage carrier (with too long a hitch post)
2108 a wine cooler/dispenser, with the center container carrying ice
2109 a golf ball "shag bag" ball picker-upper
2110 looks to me like a semi-manual vegetable/fruit peeler
2111 looks to me like a spring tensioner or belt tensioner
2107 Carrier for rear of truck or van... extended tube so something can
be mounted closer to vehicle first.
2108 Wine decanter, server ice goes in the middle, can be used for any
2109 Golf ball picker upper. used for practice in an open field.
2110 Corer of some sort.
2112 can be used as a tension scale to pull on something and test for
breakage, or weight scale for smaller items like fish.

2107 ... you have posted the answer yourself, directly at the right
side ;) it is a positioning helper for thumbnails on a html page. (no,
not a single idea what it is)
2108 to serve wine
2110 to form springs?
2112 a simple weigh (Waage), or maybee a torque measurement unit
2010 might be a, hell, I don't know the name for it, and scoreboard
doesn't sound right - it's a rack that holds race position numbers
during a race. There was a similar one for sailing on the race
director's boat on the bay where I grew up.
