This week's set of items has been posted:
I believe those are for pouring lead around old cast iron soil pipes.
Note how they form a "funnel" where they join together.
You posted a similar item awhile back. It was just the clamp missing
its "rope" part which was used instead of the rubber like these.
You might be correct but I couldn't find any similar ones on the web, I
remember posting some kind of pipe clamp but I don't remember how long ago
that was or exactly which number. The answers for the other five items for
this week can be seen here:
Far as the Liberty Tool Video video goes:
There used to be a similar shop in Santa Monica CA called 'Old Tools'
Far as I can tell from the video, Old Tools might have been a bit
larger... and the owner was a real neat freak... the place was well
organized and nearly spotless... and a bit pricy as well.
The photos don't really do the place justice.
After Old Tools closed, the swap meets were taken over by Anderson
Plywood a few miles away in Culver City CA, and continue 4 times a year
to this day.
Great job Leon! I think you nailed it, I'll update my answer in the next
day or two since I'm heading out right now and won't be home much. I will
also send the patent to the museum where I took the photos.
2735 I'm intrigued by this. People have suggested that this is an
animal collar or that it goes around a tree.
What I don't see is a way to open or close it to fasten it around
I doubt that the blacksmith fabricated it in place. I also doubt that
it was made and then the animal or tree grew into it.
That leaves me imagining someone holding down a large fighting animal
while forcing this around its head to its neck.
