Yes, but I don't know the specifics of it.

This was not made to be used on bicycles.

It may have been used with an early threshing machine. On early 20th century machines the "scale" was all metal and measured in bushels.

That's the Wilson name. Eagle probably has a different name. Karl

    Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2197)    To dispense any of five different grains (Wheat,     oats, flax seed, barley or grass seed) by volume.
    I would really like to see more views of the mechanism to see     how it works. I would guess that each of the two crank     positions (yes, it can be moved to the lower shaft) moves a     partition on a gear type pump to meter out the grain. But I     would like to see how it prevents the grain falling out to the     sides of the limited area. Perhaps a disc with a cutout to     slide on the gear on each side. Looks as though the larger     pointer and crank move the wooden partition visible at the top     view,and I'm not sure what the smaller pointer moves with.     Perhaps a second partition? Perhaps the grass seed is poured on     the other side of the partition?
    Are you going to post a patent when you post the answers?
2198)    Hmm ... perhaps for measuring a collar size or the head size     of a human?
2199)    Perhaps a printing press? Type goes in the tray on the bottom,     it gets inked, then a piece of paper attached to the roller is     rolled over the inked type to pick up an impression.
2200)    I would like to see the back and bottom views of this. I have     two suggestions:
    A)    A powered brush attachment for a vacuum cleaner.
    B)    A set-top TV antenna or perhaps antenna rotator         controller (although I would expect compass directions         on the circle if that last were true.
2201)    The angles seem a bit wrong, but it sort of looks like a stand     for storing an opened wine bottle, and pouring from it into     a glass. Perhaps for one of the rather oversized wine bottles,     or a big jug of cider? No -- with the given dimensions, not     large enough for that.
    It appears to be designed to bolt down to a table top (too light     to hold position when pouring without that), or perhaps to a     wall, in which case the orientation is somewhat difficult to     predict.
2202)    An electric horn to be bolted to the handlebars of a bicycle     or tricycle. Not very loud with only a single D cell powering     it. Sounded by a button on the back end. The apparent button     on the side serves to unlatch the cover so you can change the     battery.
    Now to see what others have suggested.
    Enjoy,         DoN.

I think you have the right general idea, this is part of someone's private collection, I saw it a few weeks ago and took a few quick photos, so I can't tell you any more about it, .

I wish I had the patent for it.

You're close but not correct.

Good answer, it's printing proofs, before the work goes to the main press.

It's a stand but not for wine bottles.

Correct about measuring collar size but it's for horses, not humans.
Most of them were identified correctly this week, the rest of the answers can be seen here:

Still recon it is for bicycles (May be traveling bicycles) What other use would a traveler have for a bulky presumably not extremely loud button activated alarm.I think they possibly named it traveler just cause it sounded good at the time.
And here is a question.Do you know what this is? Not sure how people normally submit such questions.

It's for inserting rope into the cracks between planks on a large wooden ship, like a schooner.
Previously seen in one of the What is it? sets.

It's not button activated, the button opens it for battery replacement. The alarm is activated by the sensor on the small end, I was thinking it was a motion sensor, someone here had suggested it was a temperature sensor, and then someone emailed me this:
"The last one is a temperature alarm. The device at the end opposite the horn is a Therm-O-Disc thermostat which opens or closes based on temperature. Most likely it is set up to alarm at a particularily low temperature. One could look up the model of the Therm-o-disc part to find its open and close temperatures. Usually they have the temperature clearly written on them."
But I don't see why a traveler would need a temperature alarm for a "particularily low temperature." I took the photos at an auction so I can't check the sensor for any text on it.

I don't recognize it but will show it to a few people and see what they have to say. How long is it?

People normally just email photos to me, I usually get at least a few a week.
