1451 Shredder. I've seen an ad for these/this. It is a poor-person's
paper/credit card shredder. As sold on TV, for about about what a cheap
electric paper shredder goes for. To cut up credit cards or mailed credit
card offers or other stuff.
A neighbor of mine has a bumper sticker that says: "Free Tibet". Every time
I see it, I can't help thinking: "Just Pay Shipping and Handling".
1447 steam powered band saw? or belt sander?
1448 growing help for tomatoes?
1449..1452 they are clearly used for, erh, yes, ehm, i dont know. i will use
the telephone joker.
greetings from germany
Thanks for the link on the line shaft, I was looking for a photo of one but
didn't know the exact term for it.
Anyone know the purpose of the large eyelets on the light colored pieces of
wood on the belt sander?
Quite a tough lot this week.
1447 - Possibly a belt sander, and if so, a rather early version I
1448 - Maybe to keep hair in place? Although I'd think the more typical
implements (scrunchies, springy overhead comb band thingies, crescent
and dagger thingamabobies) would be far easier to use and far less
likely to pull. I myself have a buzz cut, so I'm not really too current
with hair control apparatuses.
1449 - Does this possibly dole out something one at time from a stack or
hopper, say playing cards for a gambling game?
1450 - Specialized hatchet for, ummm...maybe slate roofing?
1451 - Paper shredding scissors, for destroying sensitive documents in
the absence of more automated devices to do the same.
1452 - I'm guessing maybe the top photo exists mostly to throw us
off--these wouldn't be used in this manner in practice. These look to
perhaps be some sort of fence attachment for a specialized moulding or
rabbeting plane, Stanley being of course known for making planes (among

1447) Weird beastie. Obviously designed for overhead flat belt
I think that the larger steel pulleys are sanding belt pulleys,
and are driven by the wooden pulleys from overhead belts.
The slight crowning on the metal cylinders keeps the sanding
belts running centered.

to start it splitting. It obviously was cast for the purpose

something else small. Maybe for credit cards?
1452) Something to hold two pieces of wood in the right position to
make a picture frame? I associate Stanley mostly (but not
entirely) with woodworking tools.
Now to see what others have said.
