What,s it for?

Postby Vincent.vanGinneke » Sun Jul 14, 2019 11:41 am

Completely off any kind of motorcycle topic!

What is it for ?
Found on French flea market.
Looks like it should be on the end of a stick to add ‘something’ to a (hot?) liquid.
By pulling on the chain cord it opens a small bleed hole at the bottom.
But to put what in to what ?

Hi

Looks like some form of 'oiler' to me - the socket is keyed to prevent rotation and is that a clear panel in the lid to establish the level?

Regards Mick

I figured that it should be on a stick and held in some sort of liquid under a angle so that the black ‘window’ (it’s not a window but a black painted part) is level with whatever it’s been held in to.
Then the chain is pulled to release a certain amount of something in to ......whatever .
Big pot of honey? , soup? Wine?

Or perhaps to add something to something?

Or perhaps to take a sample?

Some times things are going a little too fast.
