1842- hmmm, audio bannana plug, metal box, switch, wire....
I want to say the wire is an antenna, but that only makes sense if the
box is a radio designed to feed audio to something,
No tuner or volume knob visible...
I'm going to go with it's a receiver for a wireless microphone,
designed to jack into an input on a PA amplifier.
More likely a transmitter for a guitar. If it was used at the
amplifier it would be powered from a wall wart instead of batteries and
have no need for a switch. From the style, it is probably on the FM
broadcast band. The design looks mid '60s.
I think both 1840 and 1841 are used for filing down horse's teeth. I
believe that 1840 is a "float" and 1841 is a "rasp."
1842 looks like a wireless transmitter for electric guitars. Lets you
transmit the guitar sounds through a radio for practicing.
*unlikely* to be a bedwarmer.
"Coal (or wood) fired" bedwarmers almost have a solid bottom, _and_ a vented
cover on the top.
The -last- thing you want is the embers getting out of the warmer and setting
the bed on fire!
1837: Thunderbird 3 concept model
1838: Battle-comb, the last Viking word in aggressive hairdressing
1839: Colander for people who can't stand the smell of boiled cabbage
1840: Golf club for the vertically challenged
1841: Adjustable cheese grater
1842: Early 60s quiz show buzzer
Please don't bother to suggest that any of the above might be incorrect.
How could *I* possibly be wrong?
