What is it? Set 390

My ISP was down this morning so I had to post this through Google instead of my usual method.

Thanks for the comments, as long as I keep finding interesting stuff, I'll keep on posting it. A couple years ago I had a dry spell for a few months of not finding anything and started to wonder if there was much more out there worth posting, I'm happy to say that trend was reversed and I now have hundreds of items waiting to be posted. Although it is getting harder and harder to find the really intriguing items, I'm sure I'll find enough to keep the site going for quite a while yet.
All six have been correctly identified this week, more information and lots of links can be found here:

Hope everyone has a great holiday weekend!

Well, if you run out, you could always just put 2-3 single items together in plausible juxtiposition and weird us all out.

I think this is probably correct but haven't been able to find one like it.

You have the right idea but not the specific hardware.

    Perhaps early canon? Or for the supply vehicle which goes with it?
    Or perhaps a rolling shelter to allow an enclosed battering ram to be brought up to the gates while protecting the attackers from arrow fire and boiling oil?
    Enjoy,         DoN.

Cannon is correct, it's from an old 17th century Chinese model.

    Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2251)    This looks like a bolt from some kind of firearm.
    Center fire cartridge.
    Ejection looks to be vertical.
    Magazine fed.
    Perhaps as large as 30-06, or perhaps the .223 used in the     M-16/AR-15.
    It does not appear to have the locking lugs which I would     expect, so the 30-06 is probably not the caliber.
    Rather heavy for the caliber -- perhaps inertial mass for a     blowback system.
2252)    Perhaps a welding or carbon-rod gouging gun?
    Not sure where the cables would attach, however.
2253)    Hmm ... sort of looks like a hull model for some kind of     boat -- but made of bronze, and with a strange mounting socket,     so it is perhaps used for measuring forces from water flow, or     perhaps from high speed air flow.
2254)    Perhaps some kind of fuel torch (with flammable gasses or liquids     coming out the screw capped nozzle on the metal cap. Fuel     picked up by the *very* small tube which comes down into the     glass part. (Hmm ... perhaps it holds some carbide, to generate     acetylene?)
2255)    Old wagon wheel designed to handle really heavy loads. Old     enough to not have a continuous steel band shrunk onto the wood.     Lots of reenforcement studs. Lots of spokes. Really heavy     hub. It all speaks of handling a really heavy load.
2256)    From the angle, it looks like a fixture for sharpening drill     bits, but it seems to be made to hold only a single diameter of     shank, unless there are collets of some form to adapt to     different diameters.
    I guess that it *could* be for holding the shafts of arrows,     allowing a constant cone to be ground on the point.
    Now to send this off, and then see what others have suggested.
    Enjoy,         DoN.
