That's a new one on me Ogre..I've never heard of that 'test'.

....you can replace your wiper
arms with new, pressure-adjustable arms and live, fresh wiper blades that
will mean a safe, clean wipe in any kind of weather. Ask your service man
to test your wiper arms next time you stop for gas.


I guess that pre-dates me as I have never known of any wiper arms that had adjustments on the tension springs...then too, I never worked as a gas station attendant either...

A Hemmings discussion here:

A patent application for the same or similar device..early 60s I think:

I never seen OEM adjustable arms from any car maker. Only from ANCO to be a "universal" arm to fit many cars but w/ different wiper blade length.
ANCO now in just FM brand but back in 50's - 70's a believe sold "Door to Door" for shops like Snap-on etc. still does.

I don't know about that either, but there was some kind of IRS lawsuit over that whole wiperblade service thing...

I'll read the entire this later but seems to cover a lot of ANCO-"Dealer" contract etc.
I'm looking for original case and others that may have more info.

I have seen video of maryjane's dredge design as it moved along. I think it was in one of those monster machine segments.

Best I can describe it is to envision a person with no legs, using their arms and hands to lift their body up, swing their body forward then repositioning their arms and hands to repeat. The lifting arms and feet on both sides of the dredge operate in sync, lifting at the same time.

The sensor on the end of the line for the gauge looks very similar to an o-2 sensor except that it measures pressures.

You simply replace most O2 sensors and run the engine.

This is a version of the Emergency/Maintenance Key for some types of Elevator Doors.
If you find one give it to building manager or security manager. Don't give to most others that will lose it again or worse.

I forgot to come back and divulge what it is. A bunion stretching tool. (no, they don't stretch the buniuon..they stretch the shoe.)

They have been around for a very very long time but still are used today, tho a little more fancy now.
The tool is inserted into shoes or boots with ball inside and ring outside the footwear on the side or top of said footwear . It's to form a hollow projection in the shoe leather to provide relief for the wearer that has corns or bunions.

The silver colored pieces are different sizes and go into the base of the tool.

I have no idea what that is Max, or what the standards (silver colored bars) would do to what looks like a dial indicator.
Are electrical leads to be connected to the knurled knobs?

I think there are seven silver colored bars of various thicknesses. One is in place beneath the clamp which is secured by the knurled knobs.

It appears that a rod, tube or something is placed on top of the silver bar and beneath the clamp. The device might measure the deflection of the rod/tube/other.

Could it be for precisely straightening a shaft?

I am thinking that the dial indicator slides back and forth to measure the deflection at various points and the black lever is used to gently bend the shaft.

Is it an arrow straightener?

I don't think tubing bender. Looks to me, more like it may have something to do with rope, line, or wire.

Looks like a pretty standard tubing bender, but missing a handle

Looks like you may of found it in the yard. I am guessing it broke on the last user, and he tossed it out there in anger.

Still no guess on this? It is a very handy tool.



The items stored in the handle are for maintenance of the tool itself.
