3025) Interesting device.
The combination of the rectangular openings in the brass sheet,
and the grooved brass or wood plate below it suggest to me a
device to hold type (I've used rubber type of various sizes
which matches to a grooved rubber holder, and this might be for
metal type instead.
The spacing is a bit wide for normal purposes, but perhaps for
setting some kind of puzzle answer it could work.
3026) My first thought on seeing the image (before I zoomed into it)
was one of horror, because it looked somewhat like a Curta
"peppermill" calculator which had been gutted.
However, looking tat it closer, it looks like some kind of spray
head which screws onto the end of a garden hose -- or onto a
3027) That looks painful!
Perhaps intended to close on some kind of fruit to split it
3028) A device to jack two edges apart. Perhaps the right-hand end
goes against a wall and the left-hand edge goes against hardwood
floor to squeeze it tight against the previous one prior to
nailing it in place.
Or perhaps for compressing hand-set movable type?
3029) This looks like a high-voltage coil driven by a vibrator, and
switched on and off by a lock and key. Perhaps intended to make
a burglar's entry via windows too painful to be completed.
It would not be likely to be on the outside of a door to make
entry safe, because there appears to be nothing that the key
does which would latch the cover over the vibrator contact
adjustment to protect it from being disabled by something as
simple as putting a piece of paper or other insulating material
between the contacts.
3030) A pity. This number should be allocated to a specific rifle,
or a part for such a rifle. :-)
Anyway -- the crank turns a gear (visible as a disc with its rim
covered) which turns another pinion gear which engages the rack
gear in the edge of the bar.
The padded loop rests against the edge of something like
furniture, and the end with the hook looks designed to pull
nails -- or I guess that it could also be used to set the
triangular points in the frame of a window to hold the glass
pane in the frame prior to being sealed with putty.
I would like a different angle of view of the hook, but as I
said, it looks like it can pull nails.
Hmm ... at 16" length, it could also be for pulling the sides of
a frame (perhaps a picture frame, perhaps something else)
together during gluing, nailing, or screwing.
Now to post and see what others have suggested.
Posting from my desk top PC as always. For some reason,
rec crafts metalworking isn't showing messages, for me.
So,I'm reading rec puzzles at the moment.
3025 looks familiar, but I can't remember what it is.
3026 cutaway view of something. Water filter for under
the sink, maybe?
3027, we've had this one before, and I can't remember.
Maybe a puncture for grapefruit juicer lovers.
3028, totally no clue.
3029, no clue.
3030, no clue.
