Good memory! Someone had just sent me a couple of photos of the shell puller so
went ahead and posted it again. Years ago when someone would send me something
that I had previously posted I would tell them thanks but I already posted one
those, but I've since change my policy and now repost things once in a while. I
appreciate it when people send me items to post, and if nothing else it serves
a memory test.
2864 - Looks like an old musket ball.
2865 - Home made stalk/cane cutter. Made quite a few for folks. Not sure
if they were sold commercially or not.
2867 - Portable grain/coffee mill burr.
Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2863) Hmm ... some sort of ceremonial baton. Given the green
color, I suspect some Irish group, but it could be green
for ceremonial reasons in any number of organizations which
I don't know the details of.
2864) Is that weight estimate accurate? If it is sort of close,
perhaps a ball of Tungsten. Nobody tried to see how hard it is?
If it is easy to dent, lead itself is likely. If very hard,
Tungsten is possible. Or perhaps something like depleted
2865) Is it sharp or dull? If sharp, a custom purpose knife. If
dull, perhaps used for smoothing edges.
2866) Likely intended to slip onto disc-shaped projections from
a truck or aircraft body to use for attaching cargo nets and
ropes to keep things from shifting in transit.
2867) A hypoid style gear (combination of a bevel gear and an input
gear whose axis is below or above the center height of the gear
shown. It is likely part of a differential, and based on the
size, it is most likely from a toy car of some sort. Not even
one big enough for a kid to ride on.
Now -- it *might* be some form of cutter, instead. But to tell
that would require the rust and dirt to be cleaned off it, and
ideally to see it in its pre-rust condition.
2868) Hmmm .... aside from the fitting in the bottom center, it looks
rather like one of the waxed leather drinking flasks found in
various medieval reenactment gatherings. But at 14" tall, that
is a lot to drink. :-)
The bottom think looks like it is designed to snap into some
sort of mounting place. Perhaps it is designed to capture leaks
from some sort of lubricator, and to allow it to be poured back
into the supply vessel at the top?
Now to post, and then see what others have suggested.
Posting from my desktop PC in the living room, as always.
2863, probably a ceremonial staff, carried in parades.
2864, no clue.
2865, short barrel tomohawk, easily concealed.
2866, Reminds me of the ring the dentist wears with the cleaning paste.
2867, badly rusted. But looks like a machinst mill.
2868, no clue.
