--------------------------------------3154: A wine bottle cork puller.
3151 meat tenderizer 3152 Transformer 3153 fire place lighter 3154 Wine cork puller
Posting from my desk top PC in the living room, as always.3151, part of a waffle making iron, missing most of the platten. 3152, not much of a clue. It's electrical, from the wires. Beyond that, no information. 3153, I think we can rule out telescope, musical insturment, or proctoscope. Beyond that, I'm not getting any ideas. 3154, I know with certainty what this is. Years before I joined the Mormons, I'd just bought a device with similar functionality. Mine had a spiral applicator and gear operated lateral action. But, it did damage. This one leaves the affected part intact. I'll not say more, so as not to spoil it for others who would certainly wine and cry. 3155, don't know. 3156, fence tool. What else to say?
I concur, doctor. These took a bit of training and practice to get em to work.

BAD, Stormy... BAD! Yes, I would 'wine' and cry, too, if my cork-puller damaged a cork, except that the bottle would be empty, so it wouldn't matter!
Cork puller #3154.3152 actually looks like a commercial waffle iron or sandwich press.
3151 may be a hot hair curler.3153... a tire pump for a fancy bicycle?

Never mind... I completely missed the brackets fastening the top to the bottom! (Waffles go in, but they never come out! )
Actually , that one looks a lot like the engine annunciator sender for a large boat or ship . You'll notice he only showed us one side ...
We had one of these for years. I was the only one who could get it to work. After I was out of the house a few times, my wife went back to a corkscrew. It was a lot of trouble and work to get the thing to function. I gave up on it. I suspect that many other people had a similar experience. We went out and bought the biggest, nicest corkscrew we could fine. And have not looked back.
3151 Tool for braiding rope. 3153 Shock absorber for a lid on a trunk or something similar (far reach). 3154 Cork remover 3155 Drill press for a watch maker or model builder. 3156 Fence tool :-) Fence tensioning tool.
3154 is indeed a cork puller BUT it is specifically for removing a cork that has been previously damaged. It will remove the remnants of a cork cleanly or a cork that has been partially pushed down the neck of the bottle. I have used one of these and they are good.
I've an idea on 3152 but for the rest I'm stumped.
Sigh. You're not going to tell the Bishop are you?

I might, after he sobers up.
OK, I'm safe, now.
3156 Is a wire fence stretcher. It's missing a small link chain that would fit over the mostly hidden cogs for same. Just like mine :)
Probably related/based on patent number 541240 (shrug).
Correct, though I've never actually used one of these myself.
I guess that's all that needs to be said.
This device wasn't for use on a ship
I was also thinking this was for a watch maker but haven't had any luck proving it.
