3007 : bread slicer
3008 is the handle of a manual(ly) hammer(ed) drill (star drill) for
concrete or stone. The handle fits a taper on the butt end of the drill,
and the taper extractor is to get it back off again. A small sledge is
used to hammer it, and the flanges on the handle are to protect the
holding hand in case of a miss.
3009 looks to me like an old drop-light cage. ('drop candle cage'?) <G>
3010 obviously a driver for an object that might have both a slotted
cover and one with an offset hole (for security?) I've seen similar
drivers for special equipment, but this one doesn't ring any bells.
3011 no clue. I can see how it works, and it's only good "on the lift",
but I can't recall seeing any farm or lumbering equipment with such a
quick-release handle on it.
3007 early version of the game "connect four"
Or, traveling salesman's version of a cheese grater.
3008, no clue.
3009, part of a candle lantern. Or maybe bird
cage for anorexic birds.
3010, a faucet key of sorts, for a restricted
access port. I saw something like this a couple
years ago, and the memory is escaping me.
3011, need a better picture.
3012, no clue
A few wild guesses, as usual:
3007. Used for making fresh pasta.
3008. Morse taper chisel handle. Wedge used to eject bit from handle.
3009. Cage for inspection lamp. Missing the working parts.
3010. A dunno.
3011. A handle (possibly one of a pair) for handling the ash can of a solid
3012. Timber dogs, that's what we call 'em. Never seen the 'T' shaped one.
3008. The original Hammer Drill. As an apprentice I spent many
"enjoyable" hours drilling holes in concrete with one of those. I
especially liked drilling up into ceilings while standing on top of a
rickety old wooden ladder.
You have no idea how much a person can appreciates an electric hammer
drill until you have made a few hundred holes with one of those drills.
A tapered bit fits into the drill handle. The key is used to change bits.
By the way, that was an excellent method for teaching someone how to
use a hammer. :)
I was playing the fool. In the days of tubes, one would buy a
breadboard to screw down components for an experimental circuit.
Nowadays they use printed-circuit boards with hundreds of holes.
They're often called perforated breadboards.
