819. Sieve. 821. Harpoon perhaps? 822. Cork filled would imply that it was made to float so I'm guessing that it's some kind of buoy.

817. Some sort of calipers for checking material thickness. 818. Some sort of carousel for organizing something or other (not too specific, huh?) 819. Fencer's face mask/helmet. 820. Hose organizer? 821. Meant to spear and hold something for lifting, maybe fish? 822. Drafter's paper weight.

No correct answers yet for 818, you are correct in that the upper section can be rotated.

While it could be used for organizing, there is a better term that more accurately describes what it's used for. Also, it was made to hold something specific.

Nope, it's not for sorting anything.

817. For scoring, creasing or marking something fairly soft. Felt, cardboard, dressmaking maybe. 818. Pigeonhole for organising letters. Hotel use maybe. 819. Fencing mask. Epee, foil etc rather than white picket :) 820. Anchor for cables. Bolt the piece to the ground or concrete. Cable ends into the two tapered 'nozzles' and a nut screwed onto them crushes the cable into place. 821. For hauling haybales maybe. For grabbing onto/into something soft anyway. 822. Some kind of bouy or float. Marking a lobster pot perhaps. -- Dave Baker Puma Race Engines www.pumaracing.co.uk Camp USA engineer minces about for high performance specialist (4,4,7)

About # 822: is the back side convex, flat, or concave?

818. Wooden mold for an impeller casting?
821. Don't know what it was intended to be but I can think of a few people I'd like to use it on.
822. My first thought was a sheet metal dolly but cork-filled it would have to be for something very soft like fabric or paper.

817- Looks something like a cardboard creasing tool.
818- Bowl stock for a tinsmith?
819- Looks like the bottom of a flour sifter. Possibly a fencing mask but the mesh looks a bit weak for that.
820- Standoff for the old glass insulators. Either telegraph or possibly for sending power on open lead to a building.
821- Bale/Hay spear. Used on either tight hay shocks or bales. Drop it into the pile and spring the tines. Lift it using the rope and once in position drop it by tripping the trigger again.
822- Looks like a leather float for something like a lobster trap.
