Ok, we know the top one is a wall paper cutter, and the bottom one goes into a brace and bit and must be a reamer.....but what does it ream ???!!!! The tool in the middle is a mystery, and we are hoping someone out there in tractor land can shed some light on the subject.

Now, I'm always bragging on my much older brothers eclectic collection of various items for work and play, but come on now, this one takes the cake !!! What in the devil is this thing. It has a geared plunger down the center and get this: The super deluxe tag on front is in FRENCH !!!! I mean I do have some junk at my house, but I sure don't have anything written in French. Maybe Jean-Francois will find this next picture and translate:

I think Sugarmaker wrote a note to him in French when Jean-Francois joined the forum....maybe he too could give some insight. Of course, it may NOT be FRENCH at all. :oops: :oops: So guys, do you want me to continue with some more strange items my brother has managed to drag home over the years ??? Awwww, what the heck I'll dig out a few more...... ;) ;)

I don't know what they are, but enjoy seeing old items. Most times when I do find out what something was used for, I can't believe I couldn't figure it out.

i speak a bit of spanish... and well.. spanish, and french and to some extent, italian, all share a common root.. thus many who speak one of those languages often has a lil better chance at deciphering one of the other languages.

that tag on that 'irigating device' was fairly legible to me :)

Peacher, how far away from guessing correctly on this one ?? Personally I'd thought it was some kind of carbide lamp....MrsMassey is still howling in the background and she said it reminded her of the story of this lady serving house guests an evening meal consisting of stew from her newly acquired soup tureen. (Fancy word for a soup casserole dish). One of her guests quietly took her to the side and said: "Honey you DO know that's not a soup tureen...its a chamber pot".

Yep, she's still howling in the background.....and we are having hamburgers for supper, not soup..... :D :D :D

Maybe used by a cobbler for shoemaking? If I remember I'll get my tool collector father to look at it Thursday.
