612--35mm film sprocket. Could be from a camera or a projector
614--The end of a "single-tree" or "double tree." The horses pull on this
to pull whatever it is they are pulling.
615--Window shade trimmer. I used to have one in my paint store.
616--Looks to me like a phone or mike. With no receiver hook, more likely a
mike. Could also be a stand for a speaker, with the horn missing. Cigar
lighter? Hadn't thought of that.
Yes, it does seem like the heating elements were made to fit into a pipe, it
was marked cigar lighter so that was my default answer. I found an old
advertisement on ebay for one of these, in the ad they don't limit
themselves to any particular type of smoke, it says "For cigar, cigarette
nothing to do with the puzzles but I was stunned and incredibly pleased to
seethe advert for "The Way Things Go". My VHS copy (taped off PBS )wore out
from the number of people who borrowed it.
the DVD will be ordered within the week.
There is no such thing as thanks in advance
You may be right, it would make more sense to saw the wood first. I had
shown this to a number of people before posting here and guesses included:
clothes line pole top
plant stalk splitter
Looks like I showed it to too many city slickers.
I grew up with a horse in the back yard, but it was never
hitched to anything for drawing, so I did not have any familiarity with
the equipment used in that.
Of the four guesses listed above, I would have only considered
the clothes line pole top to be a possible, and not very probable, as it
was too good for the purpose. :-)
P.S. I've been collecting things to photograph to supply you with some
more strange items.

Sounds good, send them to me whenever you get around to shooting them, I've
got enough items to last a while but I always enjoy seeing new things.
Anyone else should also feel free to send photos to me if they have
something appropriate for the site.
