2049. Sent in by a visitor who would like to find the purpose of this device:
2050. This item has a function and is not sold as a toy:
2051. Another unidentified piece of hardware:
2052. Around 11" long:
2047. A beer warmer, in Germany it is thought that cold beer is unhealthy for older people, this device is used by filling it with warm water and placing it in the beer mug with the handle hanging on the rim.
2048. A United Shoe Machinery Corp. glue holder, probably used by a shoemaker.
2049. A Western Electric Lineman's Test Set from 1908:
2050. A condiment dispenser, it holds a small container of ketchup, barbecue sauce, or mustard, the trigger is pulled to dispense the condiment:

2048. This is a cement pot. Cement used to be synonymous with glue or adhesive. Before the current era of polymeric adhesives, there were all sorts of formulas for pastes that would patch or glue things.ReplyDelete
Since the emblem is USMS and not USMC, the sealing mechanism would be overkill in most situations, and the construction makes the whole device exceptionally stable, I am going to guess that this is designed to hold a patching compound for use on Merchant Marine ships during the middle of last century.
Sorry about the broken link. If you search Google Books for "The Scientific American cyclopedia of formulas", you will find large number of turn of the century cements.ReplyDelete
2050. Condiment Gun.ReplyDelete
2049 is an old detonator box.ReplyDelete
2052 looks like some sort of jigsaw
2048. The logo looks a lot like the one for the United Shoe Machinery Company, one of the largest manufacturers of tools for leather-working way back when.ReplyDelete
2048. I agree that it would hold cement, but possibly rubber cement. As paper strips were passed over, rubber cement would be applied therefore making a form of packing tape.ReplyDelete
2049. I also agree with detonator box.
2052 A reciprocating saw driven by a hand electric drill.ReplyDelete
So the condiment dispenser is essentially a squirt gun with a lid?ReplyDelete
