    • The image is from a piece of paper my son was given. It looks like movable parts, as best as I can tell. He was studying history along with typewriter, phonograph, and telephone. But he didn’t study the microscope so it shouldn’t be that. And I don’t see a spot for a plate or viewing.

  1. Thats amazing, a lubricator cup for steam engines. Clearly an expert committee took many years to come up with not only the final product but also the name. What is more amazing is Steve actually finding it!!
