2170 I recognize this as an antenna rotator control box.

2167 It isn't helpful for me to observe that this is a lock for some kind of sliding door. I don't know exactly what kind of sliding door it is made for.

2168 Again, it isn't helpful for me to note that this is a quick-turn wrench/screwdriver.

2167 may be to lock a rotating telephone dialer.

"Rob H." fired this volley in news:ijj0qd01h46 @news6.newsguy.com:

2167 looks like a trigger lock

2168 is a wire wrapping "gun". No, not for pulling cable ties, but for "wire wrap" circuit assembly. It's missing the bit and sleeve assembly. This one looks a lot like the Augat version, but AMP made one very much like it, too.

2170 is definitely (as said) an antenna rotator control.

2167 looks like a lock for a display case with sliding glass panels.

2167 is the key and lock from a storage rental unit.

Yes, it's a wire wrapper, someone had sent me the photo to find out what it was for.

Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always:

2167) Two likely choices: 1) Lock for an old rotary phone dial to prevent unauthorized outgoing calls. 2) Trigger lock for a firearm. (Much less likely.)

2168) The handle of a wire-wrap gun -- missing the bit, and the chuck which should be on the upper-right-hand end to accept the bit.

The bit is two pieces.

A thin rod with a hole a little off center in the end, and a long groove the diameter of the wire (30 gauge). There is usually a wider section of the groove near the tip to accept a bit of wire insulation, to start the wrap with a strain relief.

And -- an outer sleeve, which holds the wire in the slot, and acts as a bearing.

Likely brand on the label missing from the area near the upper-right-hand (with a screw end visible in the triangular area) would be Gardnier Denver (sp?) -- though others made similar tools once the patent expired.

2169) This looks like a somewhat modified (e.g. the cross bar in the second photo air bearing spindle for an end-mill sharpening fixture. One angle is adjusted by the double hockey puck assembly where it mounts to the grinder's table. Another angle and the height by the nut around the air hose fitting.

There is a spindle missing which goes in the bronze sleeve. Air is fed to the fitting, and this causes the spindle to float away from contact with the bronze sleeve, allowing it to move with very little friction.

Also missing is the tool and cutter grinder to which it normally is mounted.

2170) Set-top control box for an antenna rotator -- back before everything came via cable. :-) The giveaway is the compass directions marked on the dial. Note that North is at both ends, marking the limits of rotation of the antenna. (You don't want to wind up the antenna cable around the pole. :-)

2171) A really puzzling one. (The only one in this week's set about which I really don't have a clue.)

I can't tell about the end of the "grip", but it sort of looks like that was made from a single piece of fairly narrow steel strap, folded at the end after being half-circle curved.

Maybe it makes a noise when the trigger is pulled. An alternative, for which I can't see any reall support, would be as a flint striker for lighting gas torches (oxy-acetylene for example).

2172) This looks like it is designed to hold a set of collets for some machine tool. But it could be a bunch of other things as well.

I guess that it could even hold eggs on end. 100 of them. But I would expect the holes to be beveled to provide a softer contact surface to the eggs.

Now to see what others have suggested.

Enjoy, DoN.

2167: Easy! A lock and key.

2168: A pop-rivet gun?

2172: A sample/specimen tray of some kind? Missing the jars or vials.

No correct guesses yet for this item so I'll give a couple hints: it was for use in the home, and the edge of the moving part on the end is sharp.

Yes, they are gemination trays for starting seeds.

One hand feeds beans (green beans, snap beans, etc.) into the front. The other hand pulls the trigger to cut said beans, bean segments flow down the handle and land in bowl.
