2101: a rebating plane
2102: a dolly hammer used as a dolly while being hit with another hammer to
shape metal for tight spaces.
2103: a drinks cooler with the drawers for the glasses , the drinks in the
opening top with ice to cool
At first I had thought it was a molding plane, but now I think rebating or
rabbet plane is correct. The owner of this tool doesn't have a blade for it
but did send a few more photos from better angles:
Still not sure about the tool that looks like a hammer but the others have
been answered correctly:
I'll probably post another weekend set sometime tomorrow.
Hmm ... so (2103) *was* for Edison cylinder recordings. The
reason why I had rejected that as a guess was that the drawers looked
too shallow for the right length vs diameter ratio. But I guess that I
mis-judged the spacing of the drawers. Still, the primary image with
the opened drawers does not look like there was enough spacing.
2101 A Rabbit Plane
2102 A Hammer for working this sheet metal.
2103 An old indoor commode when a trip to the outhouse wasn't
possible. It does make a fine looking storage cabinet though. The
thunder Mug that came with it would also make a fine trash can in the
2104 Some kind of attachment for a Mop head?
2105 Did the center bolt have a spring around it? If it did I would
say some kind of scale? Or maybe a door hinge?
O.K. Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always:
2101) A mortising plane -- for putting decorative or functional
edges on planks. Now usually replaced with power tools.
The "Comma" or "Apostrophe" shaped piece of wood wedges the
blade to the desired depth.
Looks as though it is to lever the edge of something up relative
to another surface.
2103) My first thought was of a case for a wind-up phonograph, but
the brackets in the drawers are not right for holding either
disks or cylinder recordings. They *might* hold tins of
needles, but I can't picture anyone having that many needles,
unless they are selling them from this as a display.
And -- they take up too much space for someone to be using a
sewing machine which folds up out of the top -- because you
would need room for the knees of the operator to pump on the
treadle to run it.
2104) Something strange as a game of some sort.
22" is too short to serve as some form of jumprope, and too
long for some other things, and the "jacks" are captive on the
2105) Looks like a trigger for some kind of trap or snare. Held
down by a rope or hook through the 1/2 loop at the bottom. Some
kind of load (deadfall, spring-loaded snare, or similar is
pulling up at the kink near the upper end of the loop. When
something pulls out or down on the wire going to the left, the
loop at the top slides off the end of the straight section of
wire and releases whatever it is.
2106) Yet another device for tensioning fences? Not much travel,
based on the length of thread on the eye-bolt.
Now to send this off and then see what others have suggested.
