908. wedge and feathers to split rocks. http://www.milessupply.com/drilling.htm
bottom of page.
914. I'm going to say grapefruit segmenter. Don't really know what it
is but it looks like some sort of kitchen gadget.
908 stone splitter- insert bent pieces into drilled hole, drive in
center piece. Done at same time with many splitters and holes spaced
along the desired cleavage line.
909 sheet-metal clamping vise-grips
911 some kind of elec. conduit doo-dad.
912 battery terminal reconditioner
914 something for annoying clams or oysters
908. Rock Splitting Tools
909. One of a number of vise grip type welding clamps. I have probably used
at least six versions of this type of clamp for welding. They come in all
shapes and sizes. As well as various people welding up versions of their own
for different tasks.
908. Chisel and splitters for prising your stone faced (ha ha I'm droll) ex
wife off your assets.
909. Testicle clamps for castrating bullocks.
910. Steering wheel clamp for 19th century hay carts. Insert key, open
clamp, lock round steering wheel and brake lever.
911. Ball joint splitter for very small ball joints.
912. Tool for prising boy scouts off vehicle battery terminals.
913. Sandwich squareness checking device.
914. Fertilised brood pod remover for Jovian Floating Eaters. Organisms
which exist in the upper atmosphere of the gas giant Jupiter and feed on
smaller floating organisms. Once the brood pods are fertilised they need
removing and putting into incubation chambers within 48 hours or the
hormones surging through the Floater's bodies can kill them. Or is that
ferrets? I get mixed up.
The internet. It's not a big truck.
It's a series of tubes.
909 and 912 are done
913 is a holder for arc lamp carbons, as used inside a projector
rather than a mere floodlight. A belt over the pulley allows them to
be adjusted from outside (possibly automatically by clockwork). As
this version has two leadscrews driven together, the centre of the arc
remains in the same spot, unlike a clamp that moves a single carbon
towards another fixed and shortening carbon. This keeps the beam in
the centre of the condenser and gives an even light.
That makes more sense than my feeble answer, thanks.
It's hard to tell from the photo whether there's any electrical
insulation on one or both holders, things there look like they are all
made of metal.
Were there insulating sleeves placed around the carbons?
Thanks, I didn't know what 913 was for. A few minutes ago I found a photo
of one with a projector, it's a little over half way down the page on the
I think we temporarily killed the page you mentioned above,
I could only view the text via googles cache. I think you
have a large following of curious people :)
I found patent 981,121 which is for a very similar device:
and patent 1,059,969 in which items 21, 22, 24, 26, 27 on
sheet 2 look to be very similar.
These patents were both assigned to Bausch & Lomb Optical
Since most of the others have been identified, I won't list THEM. <grin>
910 (I think) is a Bicycle Lock: the small section fits around the handle bar
stem and the larger section goes around the wheel.
Note the hinge on the right side...
Posting from rec.crafts.metalworking as usual.
908) Looks as though they are intended to be used for splitting
logs or perhaps stone.
From the appearance, the two hooked objects are put thick end
first into a hole bored in the object to be split, and then the
chisel-shaped object is driven between them.
909) Modified Vice-grips -- I think that they are to be used to hold
two pieces of sheet metal together -- while they are either
soldered or welded. And I suspect soldered is the choice,
because they don't have the copper coating which makes it more
difficult for splatter to stick to them.
910) A locking collar. I don't know whether it is for humans, dogs
or some other critter. If humans, I think that smaller ones are
the only ones which it would fit. The smaller ring looks as
though it is to hold a leash or chain of some sort.
911) This looks as though it clamps on something to provide a
non-slip surface with the spikes. The square head on the clamp
bolt is the sort of thing found on older lathes in the lantern
style toolpost, but I don't think that this works with a lathe.
912) A reamer with two outside shaping tools. At a guess, this is
for the terminal posts of a lead-acid battery such as is found
in automobiles. The male reamer goes into the terminal clamps,
while the two females are to clean and shape the OD of the posts
on the battery. One is marked '+' and one '-', suggesting
different sizes for the two terminal posts. The reamer can cut
either size, depending on how far into the hole it is run.
913) It is designed to feed two objects together at right angles as
the knobs are turned. The closer knob adjusts the holder which
moves along closer to or farther from the knobs. The more
distant knob moves the holder which moves at right angles to it.
(This is presuming that the gear on the near end is on a smaller
shaft which runs through the larger feedscrew.) If there is no
smaller shaft inside the screw, then the two move towards their
meeting point at the same distance per turn.
I must admit to having no idea what is actually held in those
914) Perhaps for removing the meat from a coconut?
Now to see what others have said.

Item #911 is an "Ice holder" Pat 1,651,457
Designed to be clamped to the running boards of automobiles
for the purpose of holding ice and not injure the feet or
shoes if accidentially stepped on.
