Is that a caboose lantern on the right? What's the name of the lantern on the left? What kind of wood did you use on the bows?

The short bow has the leather on the back or it would brake. On a long bow no need they are ash.The lantern on right just a reg house not old. The left one old brass lantern with a small wick burner kerosene and a magnify glass front not fired up.Its old never been used when i get time might polish it up
Man play with fire man get burnt

Then again, I've been known to be wrong on more than one occasion.

That thing looks like a hinged pickle fork to me. Has it's own storage stand. Maybe a tree stand waiting for some pickles to saunter on by ;)

Maybe a height adjusting nut cracker. Back to the drawing board. :P

I knew it was a Hem marker but was not sure of the name. Zelph asked for the name and use. Last time i gave a link to the right answer, we were asked not to do that, therefore I didn't.

Cheat, just jokin' with ya. That was the exact same place I found the exact model that Zelph posted. Coming up with the purpose of the item can be easy at times but as far as the exact name, sometimes that takes a little reserch. ;)

I like this one :D I envision the test subjects head wrapped with layers of fiberglass cloth, stainless steel mesh on it's cranium to prevent surging and alien penetration. Good one russb!!!!

I'm going to try using this item as an aid in pinning the hems on my upcoming tarp project. On Thursday I'll get a pboto of it in my hand with a pin placed into the fabric. The unit slides off the stick shown in the photo. Easily hand held.
