2456 seems to be a devie for cleaning brushes...ReplyDelete
2457 have a slight idea, but it is not adequate for wrought iron used, i will give my guess after the Neatorame game started..
2458 could be a hoof cleaner hoof scratche..
2459 no idea,
2460 seems not to be complete, but i guess it could be a part of an atillery target calculator or a part of a bomb sight.
2455: Trench periscope?ReplyDelete
2459: a tool for coopers?
2460: Certainly looks like it's for bombing or navigation of aircraft. possibly a dead recconing calculator?
thougth it would be a spike barrier, but now i think it is a corn dryer
2458 is a folding combination hoof pick and hoof paring knife. It is used to clean out a horses hoof.ReplyDelete
2460 I certainly thought bomb computer but even the wwi sights I found on wikipedia looked more advanced.ReplyDelete
Flight computer is my next guess.
2456. In my studio, they hold artist brushes upright in solvent or water, depending on the medium used. Have never had one with the screen in the bottom.ReplyDelete
