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.



My Grandpa (born in 1900) said they used to use bacon rind for bearing lube around the farm. Cut it into strips and tightly wrap it around the axle spindle. Reinstall the wheel and good to go.

The one on the left is a metal version of a hand screw clamp (usually made of wood and used to hold pieces of wood together while gluing).
The one on the right appears to be a general purpose C clamp, often used to hold a piece to a surface while working on it.

But if they for a specialized application, I don't know what they would be used for.

Look like high school shop/industrial arts projects we used to build.
