3205 I'll guess that these are [ancient] Chinese multiple rocket
launchers. They hold 100 rockets, with arrows as stabilizing sticks
that are fired as a barrage. I'll guess further that these are
reasonably modern museum exhibits.

And before you post "Rob ALWAYS PUTS UP A POST WITH ANSWERS" He no
longer does. If this is an issue with you I see three choices.
1. Understand that he has changed his methods, and still try to guess,
while stopping the above BS.
2. Keep whining like a damn spoiled brat. Which is exactly what I expect
you to do. Especially since you are acting worse than Jon B. and his
3. Leave the newsgroup, never to return.
Posting from the usenet newsgroup rec.crafts.metalworking as
3205) A strange thing. Is it perhaps a portable device for crushing
3206) An egg whipper?
3207) Some sort of fork designed to easily slip off whatever it picks
up by operating the lever.
3208) O.K. Another interesting device. First off, it is built on a
parallel-acting jaws pliers. The size looks close to that of
the metal-backed buttons/pins, but the left-hand part is too
small to assemble one without bending the backing plate, and the
pliers are not really offering enough leverage to make it
practical for this use.
So -- I don't know.
3209) The tapered square to the left looks like what is found on the
shafts for winding tall clocks -- but it is the wrong gender to
fit into a clock.
Out of curiosity -- which direction does the ratio go? Is the
left or the right hand side the faster?
And how heavy (wide) are the gears? If they are thin stamped
steel, they don't have the torque to drive much significant
Perhaps it is for something like spinning a wheel with holes in
it to act as an "optical chopper" -- or maybe a hand-powered
3210) Strange -- and I can't see enough of it to be sure, but it
looks like it could scribe a diametrical line across the end of
a piece of round stock. (More detailed photo of the spring
loaded arm might give more clues.)
A tough series.
Now to post and then see what others have suggested.
