Plumb Bob and Line
Another boot sale find, something rather satisfying about an object whose only function is to hang straight...I might look out for more plumb bobs as the name is also very pleasing to say.

Device for injecting Insulin Circa 1964
|Ready to fire|
"I was again in hospital, Rush Green, I think when the nurse handed me a syringe (me being diabetic).....the nurse told me to inject myself....passing me what looked like a mini crossbow .......
As it made me feel like Clint Eastwood or John Wayne I gave it a go..."
Luckily insulin pens have been invented...when you fire this is is quite fast and makes you jump..so I wouldn't like it firing a syringe into me....
Thank you Russell for the donation to the A1 Scrapmetal collection...although I think this needs to go in my redundant objects collection....

Universal Watch Winder
Also found at Nantwich antique fair. I bought the bottom one, which has a wooden handle..but the man on the stall said he had done some research and discovered it was a watch winder which could be used for any size winder...he had found the patent for something similar..which as luck would have it...I have one (top gold coloured one).
Razor blade in a holder.

Wind up brush
This is a brush for cleaning a camera lens ... it winds up like a lipstick...the man suggested I use it to apply makeup....
Bought from indoor boot sale in the Northwich Memorial Hall.
