2380 And a very nicely made old strap wrench at that... Nowadays they
are a polymer handle-stick and strap.
2377 Sure looks like the trigger mechanism of an M2 Browning .50 caliber
2378 A gasoline burner/torch. I can't help with the specific application.
Perhaps you have not removed many oil filters, many can be quite tight
especially if the previous person that put one on did not put oil on the
gasket. I have had to destroy some filters to remove them. Leverage is
certainly your friend.
2377. Trigger for Vickers machine gun
2378. Fire lighter. Used in paddocks / bush. Usually fueled with kerosene
2379. Dunno. Brand template?
2389. Adjustable strap wrench. Used for undoing oil filters or similar.
2381. Billy can? Perhaps for brewing tea / coffee over a campfire.
Like 'most everything on the farm/ranch, it's a part of the job.
Generally is done cooperatively w/ neighbors w/ or w/o help of "custom"
crews that travel the areas that have significant burn areas every
spring, particularly out here in the Flint and Red Hill areas.
Farther west where there's much CRP (Conservation Reserve Program) grass
that has replaced formerly tilled highly erodible (think wind, sandy,
dirty-30's) ground in large areas, burning is one of the alternative
maintenance practices. Several quarters (160A/quarter) or sections of
one or several owners/landlords may be burned in a single burn. Begin
w/ a disc'ed buffer around edges of some distance for a break then a
backburn downwind and the main burn set upwind the other side.
Folks here have setups of a drip torch mounted on an old 4x4 or use
4-wheelers and head off across the burn target area at a heady clip
trailing the fire behind.
It is required to file burn plans and coordinate w/ County Emergency
Management organization whatever that is locally--generally there's a
County Fire Department who's in charge.
It's a real challenge when one gets started on hot, dry, windy days by
carelessness or accident Train hotboxes are a great source as well as
windblown power line coming down or the tossed cigarette butt along the
highway. One of worst around here last summer was a fool welding
outside in windy weather w/o protection and set his yard going which got
away into adjacent fields. Ended up w/ a 20-mile long by 5-7 mile
stretch and several houses.
2377: Old periscope?
2378: fire extinguisher?
2379: air diverted?
2380: used to tighten a ??? ?
2382: Microscope, but no idea what the large round part basket is for
