1200 is a kindling aid, if you will for a fireplace.
The stone was kept in a sheetmetal pitcher about 6" tall with a notch
for the twisted wire handle to protrude. (Think tankard) The stone
absorbed the kerosene when soaked overnight. It was the placed on a
brick located under the lograck, and then lit to kindle the firewood.
I recall it burning for 20-30 minutes.
Sure facinated us kids when granpa started a fire in the cottage
Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
1197) Looks to me like some form of bottle/jar opener.
You slid the moving jaw down into contact with the edges of the
lid, and then move the pivoted object at the other end to cam
the toothed ratchet bar down, clamping the lid between the
movable jaw and the fixed jaw, and allowing you to apply
leverage out at the end of the device.
1198) Either for distributing seed into a row or perhaps
chalk/lime powder to mark lines on a tennis court or some other
sports playing field.
The lever turns on or off the flow of the contents of the
1199) Hmm ... interesting. It appears to be calibrated, which
suggests that it either measures the size of what it caught
between the jaws, or serves to weigh the object. It the latter
case, it *might* be for weighing a fish just caught to determine
whether it could be kept or must be released?
1200) Hmm ... to sling around the head (on the end of a line) and
then release, perhaps for sounding depth over water (though a
lead weight is more common.)
Are there really two loops at right angles at the top, or is
that a shadow showing up as a photographic artifact? I think
1201) A set of non-sparking wrenches apparently designed to hang
from a belt loop. They seem to be brass, though I guess that
they could be bronze.
They appear to be separated by spinning off a winged nut. And
it is interesting that the smaller ones get two sizes to one end
of the wrench handle.
1202) This looks like a spike to serve as an anchor point at the end
or corner of a fence. The wire forms a loop around one of the
enclosed pins before passing over the side horns of the top,
while the raised striking area avoids damaging (and weakening)
the wire as you drive the spike into the ground.
Now to see what others have guessed.
