Nice. I have an old tiger timer in a box NOS just liek that one! It was on my grandfather's shelf for years so who knows how old it is. I've heard Tiger timers aren't very good though.
That covers just about every way possible to make 4 corners contact the center mechanically. Nice display Jay!
When I saw the title I thought this was about Harold and Norm and me.
Where is the E Timer?
E timer not old enough and I could add a few more besides Harold & Norm !
Why did they make so many for something that was perfect to begin with?
Here is one more.
That is a great timer collection and I enjoy seeing it.
Neat stuff, Jay. Nothing like cool old junk ! I fill my life with it and add more every chance I get.
A good reason they made so many, is because it is a small part and needs work often. You will also see many brands of bands, spark plugs, and tires. All parts which need replacing or service. Someone who had a problem, whether with the part or because they made a mistake in servicing, would hear or see an advertisement about how this new product is better, and would try it. Easy way to make some money. Kind of like selling snake oil!

Mr Jelf...I resemble that remark!
Great photos Jay! Thank you.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
