Here's a mystery for you. There isn't an answer yet because I don't know what it is. Here are two pics:


It's some sort of a gauge, made by A G Parker of 69 Icknield Street, Birmingham and on the front is engraved what I believe is the owner's name; Captain J H Square of Kingsbridge. I've put one or two enquiries out and am waiting to hear from them. I think it might be something to do with Guns because I have an idea that A G Parker was one of the founders of Parker-Hale, a company that specialised in gun sights and accessories. Has anyone ever seen anything like it?

Called Vacu Vin `wine savers'. We still use them but the design has changed slightly as shown on the company's web site. [LINK]

Either a light bulb, or you've got your chemistry set out and you're using a round-bottomed flask with a glass tube through the cork to prepare gases.

Belle keeps protesting against technicalities but she's got it right. It's a shaft oiler. Filled with oil, inverted and mounted in a hole drilled in a bearing cap, the metal rod drops down and touches the shaft. As the shaft rotates it jiggles the rod and oil drips into the bearing. When the shaft is stationary no oil flows. Cheap, effective, reliable and you could see if it needed refilling simply by looking at it.

All right, this one is definitely technical. Brand new, never been used and probably the only one in the world in this condition.
