What is it? Set 514

Agreed an old coke dispenser The bottles were in the cylinder which rotates up to drop a bottle after you pressed the lever, after you put your nickel in.
Looks like it belongs in a large turret type gun.
2999 looks like a removeable handle for a pot pull the item to lock it on temporarily until released. Or looks like there might be a point on that handle, which might be for old oil cans... (can't get photobucke to respond, it just spins so can't see the enlarged image)
2997 Either from an airplane the electronics antenna or from a boat as a outrigger with balast (doubtful but still might be).

It is the direction finding antenna from an ARN -6 low frequency ADF system. I worked on many of them.

The usual posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking -- where do the rest of you post from (which newsgroup, not where are you sitting. :-)
2995) Looks to me like a fuseable plug -- in a boiler or something similar -- designed for the pink stuff to melt and blow out when the temperature and pressure get too high.
2996) For supporting something printed on paper -- not quite stiff enough to be cardboard. Perhaps music at an organ, or something similar - except it is not clear how it mounts to what from just the single view.
2997) Streamlined housing for an antenna (fairly high frequency) on an aircraft. Not metal -- probably some fiberglass or plastic selected to be transparent to the frequency of RF involved.
2998) It vaguely looks like a Coca-Cola bottle vending machine, except that I would expect the output side to be on the bottom, not the top.
But I don't see a power cord to keep the bottles cold. (Perhaps a lack of the proper angle of view. :-)
At least some kind of vending machine, with the lever, the coin slot, and the coin return slot on the right.
Does the presence of the fire extinguisher have any significance?
And it seems to be in a church, based on what looks like a stained-glass window behind it. :-)
2999) Different possibilities:
1 -- stapler and staple remover
2 -- Oil can opener and pouring spout.
3 -- something which I have missed totally.
3000) Looks like some kind of woodworking tool -- *made* by a good woodworker. But what its precise function is I'm not sure.
Now to post and then see what others have suggested.
Enjoy, DoN.

The nav unit was the ARN 14 for the vhf vor system. The military system was the Tacan system also included in most navigation ground stations. This system gave distance as well as bearing information. The vor system also had a Distance Measuring Equipment DME which for civilian use gave the distance to the station from the aircraft.
The ARN 6 was a low frequency direction finding unit. It would home in on any radio broadcast signal. The antenna had a goniometer which was a rotation ferite antenna and a long wire sense antenna. the goniometer was servoed with information from the two detected signals. The ferite antenna would seek a null signal and the indicator in the panel would indicate the direction of the station.

Thanks, that's a good photo, I just added a link to it on the site.
The answers for this week have been posted, along with an update on the saw from a few weeks ago:

I'm guessing it was coiled up on the back, but I didn't take the time to look that close.
I took the photo in a second-hand store, there was lots of stuff piled everywhere, so there isn't any real significance. BTW, I like the interior shot that I found on the web better than the external one and probably would have used it as the puzzle had I found it before I posted yesterday morning.

Every week, I look for the answers post. I recognize it cause Rob puts "answers" in the subject line. I keep looking.

Still have it? They are worth some serious money to collectors these days.

nah... got rid of it before I went to 'Nam, along with a number of things I figured I'd never get to use again...
