2155) Desktop accessory for keeping control of many
receipts or other small (and easily blown) pieces of paper.
Lift the ball, slide new piece of paper under it, let ball back
2156) Strange tool If it were two points instead of a point and a
hook, I would consider it as being a test probe of some sort,
and would be wanting to get an end-on look at the end which is
As it is, perhaps the hook latches onto a piece of stiff wire,
and the tool pivots around that point to drive the sharp point
But -- this still does not explain the scallop type part
spot-welded on about a third of the way up the pointed side.
2157) Either a hanging display bracket for a large ball (like a
globe) -- or for pressing in on the tread of a tire at three
points separated by 120 degrees, perhaps as an assist in seating
the bead on a tire.
2158) Speaking of tires -- this appears to be part of a solid tire,
perhaps filled with foam rubber. It looks to have split
(amazingly cleanly) along one of the tread grooves, and to have
been cut apart from the rest at two 90 degree points, while the
inner surface just broke on its own.
I've seem something like this (but smaller) as flat-free tires
2159) At first, I though that this was some kind of relay adjustment
tool -- with a handle similar to the J-66 punchdown tool for
phone terminal blocks.
But examination of the narrow end detail photos suggests to me
that it may be a form of "bump" style lock picking tool.
2160) Combination crimper and cutter for solid wire (of the gauge
typical in fencing). Perhaps it is for crimping ferrules to
form an eye splice in wire rope.
Now to post this and then see what others have suggested.
2155- Looks like a 1/4 storage rack for bowling balls.
2156-Soldering tool of some kind.
2157-A rehabilitation device for Professional Bull Riders.
2158- Looks like the flywheel from my old 1964 GTO after I missed the
first to second gear shift.
2159- One end must be a gut hook for minnows. No idea about the other
2160-Hog ring tool?
All just W.A.G.s
