I'd love to have a DS or SM. Classics, both.
Many years ago, I knew a guy who had a Citreon in Arizona. He used to drive
it all over the desert. He took it places that a four wheel drive would
have difficulty with. His secret? The Citreon air lift system. He would
drive into a gully and lift or lower the car to make it the rest of the way.
I drove with him one day. I was thinking I would have to hike out. But that
car went into some rough country and out again. I was impressed. both by the
car and his driving skill.
1622: log stand (hammer the prongs into a log, then the
stand keeps it from rotating)? Right twist to attach,
twist to detach
1623: data cable organizer - the light duty model.
1624: traveling case for a lemon wedge?
1625: wire/rope measurer; every hardware store should have one.
1626: snow anchor (for glacier/snowfield attachment)
Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
1621) The main tool is designed for prying up something with a head,
and perhaps the other part is intended to lock it in the pried
No idea what that particular something is -- though it might be
related to manhole covers of some sort or other.
1622) looks like one of a pair of feet which latch onto something
also of cast iron. If so, it is upside down in the photo.
1623) Display rack for something sold to consumers. At a first guess
it might have been spools of thread, depending on the diameter
of the spikes.
1624) My guess here is that the design of the "fin" causes it to
flutter in and out as it is reeled or towed through the water.
Does the pin stick out of the top when the fin is fully inside
1625) Designed to measure out lengths of rope, wire, or cord of some
sort. I would guess that the pointers are friction fit on the
pins so you can set it to all zeros before you start reeling the
product through it. I don't see a lever for quick zeroing
otherwise. The visible lever lifts the clamp drum -- and it
*might* also be linked to a zeroing mechanism.
I'll bet that if you measure, you will find the roller drums to
be precisely 3.8197" +/- 0.002" or so. This would give one full
rotation of the drum per foot of product pulled through. (The
figure above is 12" (one foot) divided by Pi.) I wouldn't
expect any units other than feet given its size, the New York on
it, and the apparent age. (Besides -- the size scales well to a
one foot circumference drum. :-)
1626) Hmm ... the pins may serve as something to bend wire (perhaps
spring wire) around and the gullets are perhaps to hold one end
of the wire while the other is being bent.
Now to see what others have suggested.
