1868 The indicator/dial from a water-clock (clepsydra).
1872 Adjusting stop for a window awning. Screwed to an outside window
frame. Rod catches one of the notches to set the angle of an outside window
Note that some of the awnings are adjusted at different angles.
1867--Upside down? Looks like it could be a bumper on a vehicle. I even
see some signs of collision in just the right spot. That it is engraved
makes me rule out more-industrial purposes. Of course, I could be
Oil clock. Float tracks the oil level, which goes down as the lamp
(wick below) burns.
Hand-cranked whirly thing, but no idea what for (farming the Mid
West, I'll bet, but no idea which end of the cow you stick it in)
Lightning bolt (stylised Buddhist one)
Guessing it goes on the end of a pole and acts as some sort of ratchet
hook? Maybe another patent cart or buggy jack?
Part of a window opener for small fanlights. Screw on the wall, a loop
hooks into the rack and can be adjusted up and down by a few inches.
1871: A Peavey hoist, a crude but powerful version of a comealong.
Works with heavy chain. Used in the woods to open the sluice gates of
driving dams, among other things. The socket takes a long wood
