2871. Also no luck yet on this piece of hardware:































2872. This is a cabinet gauge for setting the depth of cut on a woodworking plane or jointer, the part on the upper left is connected to the indicator needle and gives readouts from 0-1 mm. The word Schwarz'sche breaks up into the name "Schwarz" and the ending 'sche is older german language, it means that something is built or constructed after a development or a patent invented by a man with the last Name "Schwarz". The word Pr├Ązis translates to precise or accurate and Schrankmesslehre means cabinet gauge.





























2873. Haven't yet found the exact purpose of this clip.

2874. A Campbell Hauseld Air Chisel/Hammer, similar chisels that could have been used with it can be seen here:

  3. 2874 looks like it's missing a piece.

  4. 2874's grip and body looks like that of an impact wrench, and I've never seen anything else built in that style, but if it is then it's missing a lot of parts on the business end.

  5. 2874 is a pneumatic air hammer. The only thing it is missing is the tool bit (chisel, blunt hammer, sheetmetal slicer, ect).
