What is it?

I've been collecting unusual objects for quite a while, and several years ago I started posting them on this site as puzzles for visitors to figure out what they are. Most of the items are mine but a few belong to others, if you aren't interested in tools there are plenty of other type objects that have also been posted.

For first time visitors I recommend this archive for a wide variety of some of my best pieces.

  • >700. Croze - used to cut grooves...

    Correct

    >701. The part of a gantry crane...

    Yes, though I'm not sure if gantry crane is the exact term for it.

    >701 The trolley part of a hay loader.

    Correct

    >699. Number stamp for marking logs.

    This was also my guess on this tool, but the seller informed me that timber markers are more heavy duty. I've since seen some that are used on logs and agree, they were larger and also had more numbers and/or letters.

    >698 - "Chain" and weight vernier parts of a two-pan, mechanical analytical balance???

    Correct
