Text on it reads "PAT. JUNE. 24 .29", but that's not a Tuesday, so either it's
an incorrect date or not a U.S. patent. One of my friends did some research and
reported: "That date was a valid patent date for Greece, England, Germany,
France and Denmark. There were 262 patents issued on that date in those
countries combined, and I looked at those from England with no obvious hits."
The end of the plunger is tapered, a photo of it can be seen here:
Rob, I don't like it for a powder loader, by virtue of the fact that it
has no means to limit the amount of the charge. Powder piston loaders
almost all have a means to meter out a fixed amount of powder per stroke.
That one seems to just admit powder more-or-less endlessly, without any
particular method of stopping it. The tip would ram it, but what would
stop the powder remaining in the tube from just 'drizzling out' when it
was removed from the sprue it was intended to fill?
No... being a pyro person, I'm not happy with that being _anything_ to
load powder into _anything_.
(could be wrong, though. wouldn't be the first time!)
I think it's for medicating small animals . I know what a problem I have
giving our dog her meds <monthly flea pill , aspirin for her aches> . Drop
pill in funnel , insert tube into mouth , pull plunger and follow the pill
