I'm sure someone will know what these tools are for.









I know what this one is. I had to take the antenna off the roof so we could have a new roof put on. Somehow this is where I put it.

The blue castings are an electric motor mount. Back in the 4o's and 50's when home workshops were in vogue, the priciest thing was the small electric motor. This allowed one to move the motor from machine to machine easily. Usually only one pair of the castings attached to the board were used, using the weight of the motor to keep tension on the belt.

The first item in the first photo is a fence stretcher, It will open and clamp around the barb wire then you hook a come a long or rope pulley stretcher to it and pull till tight.

The top left item is a wire grip. It could be used with other tools to tighten a fence or any job requiring wire or cable to be gripped for pulling or tightening.

Tool #2 might be for hog ring attaching, like on seat springs or chain link fence use. My best guess.

The second-to-last photo is an experimental "Telecopter" that made one successful flight, but had a VERY hard landing.

If you can find a pat. number you could look it up and it will tell you what they were used for.

Thanks Mark. I can see there is lettering on one but I need a better magnifying glass and some good sunlight to see it. (Or better eyes).

I think the second from last was Google Earths first attempt vehicle.

Two antennas met on a roof. Fell in love & got married.
The ceremony wasn't much, but the reception was great.

Hey, is that your back yard? The roadster behind the antenna carrier looks like it deserves a place in the workshop to be put in working condition asap :-)

We had a lot of fun with that Runabout. We would drive it to shows with our restored one. Before and after. I robbed the motor and axles out of it to build my rusty Coupe. I have been picking up correct parts for it and with put it back together some day.

I enjoyed the humorous comments about the TVT. Great minds.
