  4. 2629 - could be a shipping box for a small paper machine roll. These are often sent out to be refinished with a rubber coating or to be ground down. The holes on the end are for the Journals, which are what fit into the Bearing on the machine.

    Agreed 2634 retrieves the film ends from 135mm film cassettes. You shove the longer side of the toungue in, and a little bit of the shorter tongue. Then, you rotate the stem of the film canister backwards, until you feel the end stop against the tongue. Then, you shove the tongue all the way in... an presto! The tounges are clamped together, and you can retrieve the end of the film.. to develop or to re-expose part of the roll!

  7. 2629 looks like a crate for big power cables. You open the box, lay out as much cable as you'll need and leave the rest in the box. The openings at either end let you put the lid back on with some of the cable still coiled up inside.

  8. I agree with Mr Bastow, we use similar cases at the theatre I work at.

  9. Also, 2632 could be a device for picking mortice locks, to be used to turn the barrel while a rake is used alongside on the tumblers?
