Yes, it's part of the Sellars Gallery, I should have mentioned the fence was
miniature. Some excellent photos of hundreds of vintage tools on display can be
I was going to ask the owner if anyone in his family was a biker, but then read
his original email and saw the history of these two items:
"I found these in a local estate. They were in the bottom of a box that had
Taillight lenses, old camera and cigarette lighters."
In the past I have been concerned about accidentally posting something
inappropriate. There was just one time that I remember when someone sent me
something they found after some tenants moved vacated a rental, luckily we got
an answer before I posted it, though I was leery of using it since it looked a

3097) Looks to me like a cheaper version of the part which locks the
sliding scale in a combination square. The projection lives
in a groove the length of the scale on one side. A nut on the
thread (usually with a spring in it to apply friction while
loose) draws the part and locks the scale in position.
The Starrett scales and squares usually have a half-round groove
3098) Hmm ... perhaps for cutting overlapping ends in joined flat
belts or sanding belts.
3099) The two holes in the flat end appear to be for screwing it in
and out of something. But there does not appear to be a
threaded piece -- either in the open end, or in the inside of
the flat end.
But at a guess, I would say that it is intended to be a male
connector pin -- all of the wires wipe on the inside of a
cylindrical female end making for quite reliable electrical
connections (But a firm way to mount it on the rest of the
connector seems to be missing, so I am not sure.)
3100) Assuming that the only item which appears completely in the
frame is the puzzle object, I think that this is a frame for a
saw for cutting firewood. Presumably it is tightened by a
twisted rope between the two top ends.
3101) A hanging foot rest -- perhaps for something like a Ferris
wheel. Or it might be part of a foot pumped tool of some sort.
3102) This looks like something intended to clamp onto the heel of a
heavy shoe for conditions like the relatively nasty weather we
have been having recently. Ideally there should be two of them.
Now to post and then see what others have suggested.
3097 - Got the rest of the sliding square this fits?
3098 - Picture framing miter cutter ?
3099 - Looks like a hand grip for a bike, Maybe it's supposed to have a
3100 - Sluice gate.
3101 - Looks like an adjustable treadle step. Adjustable so you have a
better angle ?
3102 - Forerunner of Yaktrax, Clamp them to your boot heels...
