847 a whatthehellisthis.
848 no idea where this accumulator-pack comes from
849 target for some toys? for pistol for pressured air?
850 the numbers on the scale can be hardly read. Thermometer? Barometer?
some device for measuring viscosity?
851 this is a whatthehellisthis. Angle meter for inside corners?
852 stock exchange ticker machine the newest model from year 2006? ehr, year
sorry, again more guessing than knowing. but i like it.
greetings from germany
847 I've seen something similar that was a guage used on saw blades. Yhis
one looks a little rough for that?
848. Battery pack out of a standard 9V battery. IIRC the cells are AAAA
size. At one time there was a red dot sight (for firearms) on the market
that required the user to disassemble a 9V
to get batteries for it. Didn't last long.
852. First thought was stock ticker. But I'm going to say it's the machine
used to "punch the tape" on a early computer controlled lathe or mill. We
had a few of these in the early 70's
at a company I was working for at the time. Very early CNC.
As always -- posting from rec.crafts.metalworking.
847) Hmm ... cast iron, and backside view. Perhaps the front legs
of a fireplace dog for supporting logs to be burned?
848) A set of six cells (probably NiCads) connected (by spot welding)
in series, and with the wires from the end terminals pulled or
cut off. This should have been in some powerpack for a
rechargeable tool or device. Voltage would be 7.2V with NiCads
-- a bit more voltage with NiMH cells.
849) Perhaps for indicating where on a target the hit was (by staff
who are down in a safety pit during the actual firing.
850) That is a strange one. The upper part is a bubble level while
the lower looks like something designed to leak a substance at a
selected angle (I not that the level does not appear to have a
center zero). At a guess, I would say that it is some system
for measuring viscosity of a liquid.
851) I think that I see the Stanley logo partially obscured, but I'm
I suspect that it is a carpenter's tool for assuring that the
two sides of a roof have the same angle.
852) It feeds paper tape. It appears to have a gear and pinch
roller drive to select the speed.
The head does not look beefy enough to contain a multi-level
punch as would be common with Teletype punches.
The square shaft is too close to the base and other things to be
used to drive a take-up reel, so I will say that it is probably
for winding up a clockwork drive.
I suspect that it is for recording Morse Code on the paper tape,
for retaining a permanent record to be checked against the
operator's hand-written copy.
The larger and whiter metal cover probably protects an ink
roller. It transfers ink to the shaft just below it, and the
spring arm below that is operated by the coil on the right-hand
end of the box, bringing the arm into contact with the paper
tape, and lifting it into contact with the inked shaft to make
markings on the tape. The terminals in the right end near side
connect to the coil -- and would be connected to a relay on the
telegraph line. I think that it predates radiotelegraph.
Somewhere there should have been a crank or a key for winding it
up -- probably done about the time that the tape was changed.
Now to see what others have guessed this round.

Thanks, I got a couple of emails stating it was a Stanley No. 30, any
idea what the difference is between a No. 30 and No. 30D? I didn't
find much on the 30D but found some No. 30's that look just like the
one in my photo.
