  1. 1609 Motometer and radiator cap from an early automobile.

  2. 1611 Timken roller bearing

  3. 1609. Boyce Motometer radiator cap agreed with previous poster.

    1610. Tool rest for metal spinning operation on a lathe. A metal spinning spoon is placed in the frog of the device which is mounted to the lathe. The bar is then moved along with the spoon to provide leverage in the spinning operation.

    1611. A rather worn bearing. Spalling is observable on many of the rollers.

  4. Correct answers so far:

    1609. Boyce Motometer radiator cap
    1611. Timken roller bearing
