Recent finds and a "whatsit"
#8
  
I finally caved and went hunting this weekend. Things weren't too bad and I came home with some goodies. Thought I'd share and see if someone could tell me what one of the tools is. Let's start with that one. Here's a pic.




It looks to me to be some sort of sharpener. The rod has no grit. Any ideas? Next are the "prizes"


This is a VERY nice set of James Swan auger bits. Even the box is in great shape.


Very nice set of greenlee turnscrews Cool 



Minty set of Irwin auger bits


Very nice K3 base set


NOS 42 saw set and 220 block plane. There were some other items, but they were all pretty mundane. Thanks.

I think the what's it is a bobbin or spool winder.

Google image search did not find anything. I wondered about those possibilities.

My other thought was the rotating part of an apple peeler.

That is a really strange looking gear setup.

Dave: does turning the crank really spin the rod? Is the rod tapered?

Head back to Google and search 'vintage bobbin winder' and you will find several examples.

Thanks guys. Ivan, the rod is tapered. The only markings I can find are the "GAJ" on the wheel and "SWEDEN" stamped into the perimeter of the wheel.

Funny I went on a hunt this morning came home with some nice stuff too.  I got one of these after already going through place once and loading up my finds.  I haven't seen one shown here but then I haven't looked until today.  This isn't the one I found but pretty much the same condition and probably just as tricky to pick up without shedding blood


No, just that he can't seem to get enough weiner

You got something on your nose there, Peter.....
