What bands?

These bands. I each for Reverse, Low and Brake. They look like brake shoes except they clamp down on the outside of the drum, vs expanding into the inside of a drum

Oh, I think I see. Reminds me a bit of a 63 Ford Econoline I had as my first "car". The shifter on the 4 in a tree (yep, 4) broke, so I couldn't get it into reverse after I'd jury rigged the shifter to work in the four forward gears (piece of garden hose & several hose clamps). So, I learned to park where I didn't need to back up, and if I did, I'd rigged a coat hanger through the front grill that'd allow me to pull the shifter forward into reverse gear (fondly nicknamed "Manuel Rivera by my girlfriend"), then when I was done reversing, I'd have to use a giant 2' long screw driver to push the shifter back into neutral. Pretty much sucked, but the part to fix the shifter was no longer made, and even when it was, was only available in Canada, where the van was originally from. I still talk to her occasionally 45 years later, and we still laugh about Manuel Rivera.

I learned a LOT owning that van.

Anyone know what this is? Found it today at the cemetery (don't ask).
Thanks!

Found a tool I made for some boat project. Hell if I can remember what I was turning with it

It didn't look like this when I started cleaning it. This thing had decades of dust glued to earlier decades of completely dried oil/grease. Impressively tough stuff to clean off and out of the nooks and crannies.

Markings : 14 The Keystone Mfg Co Buffalo NY
Image

Component parts :
Image
The top portion is a ratchet handle. The knurled knob to the Right pulls out and rotates to reverse direction.

Image
This part has a male acme threaded rod... which screws into this part :

Image
Which is the part on the Right in the Pieces/parts photo.

One side of this piece is the female acme threaded portion on one side, and a #2 Morse Taper (f) on the other.

Inserted into the #2 Morse Taper was this piece:
Image
#2 Morse Taper (m) on one side, Square drive about 11/16" on the other.

There is a fine thread exposed on the internal part that ratchets. The top photo doesn't show it well.
Ah, might as well mark up the pic. Here it is. The threads are exposed when it is all put together as I found it.
Image

The closest that I have found is an eBay listing calling it a "14" Ratcheting Machinist Tool Holder" .
I'm guessing that it is a tap handle, but nothing like I have used before.
How is the "dead center" used on this tool?

It's a fairly elaborate tool for the simple use that I am thinking of, so my real guess is that I know nothing.

It's a ratchmocentahammer!

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.

They obviously don't know what they are talking about. Must be a bloomberg/progressive company.

Yea, is the square drive tapered on the inside?

It's a ratchet for getting into spots that a brace can't be used in

I won’t say what it does, unless nobody gets it, but I do know many people call it the lazy man’s approach.

Or the don’t ruin your Sunday go to Meetin’ clothes approach. :)

A Model T has no dipstick. To check oil, you have two petcocks on the oil pan

Image

The idea is to keep the oil level between the two petcocks. So you crack the top one, and if oil comes out it is over filled. If none comes out, you then crack the bottom petcock. If oil comes out, you are good. If no oil comes out of the bottom petcock, you need to add oil

The wrench shown above lets you reach and open the petcocks without crawling under the car.

The Sierra club won’t like this, but back in the day when you cracked the petcock and oil came out, it fell on the ground and you just left it there.

Today, I have a drip pan under my T to catch that oil, and all the other oil that regularly leaks out of every Model T in the world

My other guess would have been a too to switch gas tanks...

Way back in my college days I had a CREAKY old teechur who taught PNW History. He told us a story about taking the rutted dirt road over the pass (you can still see the ruts in some places near the pass on some of the side roads)...

One day he threw a bearing. So he got out of his model (T? A? I can't remember) took his hat off and drained the crank case into it. Removed the pan, folded up the tin foil (real tin) from some chewing gum he had on hand, shimmed the bad bearing with it, tied everything back up and then poured the oil in his hat back into the motor....and off he went.

Don't shoot me, that's his story.
