2377 - ANM Spadegrip backplate off a Browning M2 set up for aircraft use.
2378 - Drip torch. Used to light controlled burns.
2379 - Looks like an early version of a combination tool. One piece
serves to draw circles and arcs while the other allow you to cut mortice's.
2380 - Some form of strap wrench. Looks to be a special purpose one for
gas company use?
2381 - Ye Olde lunch pail
2382 - Well there's a microscope but the other item ????
Posting from Rec.crafts.metalworking as always.
2377) Aiming grips and trigger (the knurled surface between
the two handles is pressed by either or both thumbs) for
a machine gun -- M2, I think.
And I think that this is the remote one which can be used while
the weapon is on a low tripod and the operator is standing.
I recently stumbled across this information when looking for an
example of the "Manual of Arms" from the period of WW-I. About
four days ago, I would not have known this at all.
2378) Perhaps an agricultural sprayer for insecticides?
2379) Looks as though it might be one of the tripod feet from 2377
2380) One of the nicest looking and best made strap wrenches that I
have ever seen.
For turning a smooth cylinder without marring it.
2381) A bit small for the first thought of being for boiling corn
on the cob.
Perhaps for sterilizing medical instruments by boiling them?
2382) Given its location, I would think that it might be to use
water to form a lens to focus illumination (perhaps from a lamp
wick or a candle) onto the mirror below the stage of the
O.K. That's all the questions, and all my suggestions.
Now to spell-check this and then post it and go check what
others have suggested.
if 2380 is really a tool for removing oil filters, then there must be
some elongation missing. The cord is much too small to surround an oil
2382 i think that the miracleous part is a holder for glas balls, that
are used as condensor lens for bright enlightening of the specimen.
