Something more to throw money at!

It would make a great "Whatsit?" desk sculpture.

I doubt the ladies making those cartridges in the 1850s/60s had anything that elaborate!

I feel Shop Class was Mr. Crossen's favorite subject in High School.

If only he had been a Stoner. Think of the fabulous Doobie Roller he would have come up with . . .

 :)  Ahem   ;)

Whilst in the local Starbucks, waiting for my Tall Mocha, a gal walked in and asked for "A Skim Milk, Decaf, No Foam Latte."  I asked . . . . Why bother??  Thats just brown Hot Water.  She was not amused.

This little Rube Goldberg Steampunk paper cartridge rolling "machine??" seems to fall in the same cattle gory.  Why Bother??

I also had a friend in High School who was the proud possessor of a fine Cigarette Rolling Machine.  Turned out some super fine filter tip reefers.  Put 'em up in empty Cigarette boxes he scrounged up.  That I know of, he never got caught.

Stay Safe Out There

Well, I DID inhale.

Those made for some of the finest times I had in High School if I could just remember them. :D

I keep thinking of it as a table top amusement, like you sometimes see at finer Waffle Houses.

It's one of those objects that many years from now, when your heirs are disposing of your estate, they'll ooh and ahhh over it and ask themselves "What the hell is this thing?".

John, I agree. But I've scored a LOT of antique reloading tools out of the 'Kitchen Implements' sections of the local antique shops.  ;D

A little off subject, but I once scored an early antique can opener, designed to open the type of cans that had the lids soldered on with a vent hole in top that was closed with a blob of solder after being immersed in a boiling water bath to sterilize. (1850-1870's or so)
Nice hardwood handle, an adjustable cutter on the shaft that ended in a dogleg end point to pierce that vented hole and rock the cutter around the rim to open.

The family thought it was a leather working tool to cut round pieces of leather up to a 5" diameter. Nevermind that it would leave a hole in the center of that leather circle.
