654. Razor blade sharpener

655. Cooper's axe, cooper's side axe, or cooper's broad axe for initial dressing of staves and heading pieces.

656. Corn sheller

657. Plumb bob, hollow, made of two pieces of iron. Don't know what A88 means, it's on both sides but the letters and numbers are not the exact same. I was hoping to find out if this piece is common or not but I haven't been able to find any info on it. I've heard that there are quite a few plumb bob collectors but I found very few on the web. Please let me know if you've seen one like it before or know anything about it.

658. Pistonola wind motor, which drives the piano roll on a Boyd Pistonola player piano.

More photos of this machine can be seen here.

659. Part of a tank periscope
