I need some help with the first item this week, I've shown it to a number of
people and most of them don't even have a guess for it, I'll be surprised if
we get the answer:
1702 A guess, based on a crude description of the parts... A tractor (or
possibly animal team) pull sled. It has a weight and a mechanism to move
the weight from one end to the other as it moves, changing the effective
Looks similar to the trailer towed in "mud drags" / "bog racing" where the
further the thing is dragged the greater the load it presents to the towing
vehicle. mmm, cant find a pic of a similar one anywhere.
1701 Let me try a wild guess, based on the words in the description... When
I was a kid, baseball scoreboards had a guy hanging numbered panels in
windows. Nowadays, they use computers. Could this be part of the control

1700 - Could be an early hole punch ?
1701 - Not a clue. Looks like it could be interesting though!
1702 - Home built weight transfer machine.
1703 - Old self locking clamp?
1704 - easy pour oil filler for a lamp???
That was my first reaction, but note that one loop is smaller than the
other--it could simply be bent but if it's part of a disintegrating belt it
seems to me that that would be likely to cause a stoppage.
Rich, I was being just a touch facetious. I spent a long time behind
both a single and twin Browing .50 on Swift Boats in RVN.
They extract each round from the belt, and chamber it fully. Think
about it... where would the link fit inside the chamber?
Here's the only vid I could find quickly that shows the rounds being
ejected onto the roof of the vehicle.
