2949 looks more like a line tap for hooking onto a high tension line .
2948 is for seating valves in an IC engine . 2951 might befor tubing ,
though it's pretty small , I think more like wire maybe .
-- 2950 might be a bullet , but not likely if it's made of steel/iron as it
appears . Maybe a form for crucibles ?
I'll second this - electrical line clamp / grounding clamp.
A live-line switch-stick tool connects to the loop -
- to tighten / loosen the jaws over the line conductor or stirrup -
- the grounding / connecting lead wire is attached via the hex nut.
Just took a closer look at the web site, they say it was "designed by the
Hostage Rescue Team to improve and increase the breaching and entry options used
by law enforcement and military agencies." So it looks like you are correct
it not being for firemen. It's available here:
Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always (for all you
seeing this in other newsgroups).
2947) Looks like a tap for an old wooden beer keg.
Is the photo reversed, or is that a left-handed thread on
2948) The shape and the behavior suggest that it is a tool for
lapping automotive engine valves into the head. You put
some valve grinding compound under the lip of the valve, with a
light spring under it, crank for a while, pull back to let the
compound run back in, and repeat until you get a full seal
I think that you had another of these some time back.
2949) The eye looks a bit thin for hanging it by, so I think that
it is to clamp the moving part onto a rod going through the 'V'.
The cross bolt is to attach it to some larger structure.
But exactly what is being built with the clamped rods I don't
2950) Looks like the projectile part of a round for perhaps a
howitzer. If that 4-1/2" is precise, that would make it just
below 115mm -- but I think that 110 mm is a more standard size
for such, which would be about 4.330", or 4-21/64".
The hollow base would likely be stuffed with an explosive
charge and some delay fuse.
2951) This tool is for bending either tubing, or wire of a given
diameter, and to form either of two different radiuses.
I think the groove in the larger one is a bit wider, appropriate
for a larger diameter tubing. Not always used for a full 180
degree bend, but that would be the maximum, and probably a 90
degree bend would be more common.
Since it appears to be bronze, not steel, it is probably for
use around flamable gasses -- Hydrogen, or others.
2962) This looks like a tool for deconstructing (destroying) wood frame
buildings, or partially so -- such as removing interior walls
Perhaps a tool for use by firefighters, as you have frequent
things related to that field.
Now to post this and then see what others have suggested.
