Nice detailed piece can’t trace maker?

Post by Earthdawg » Mon Nov 13, 2017 5:07 pm

Evening all, had bitterly cold start yesterday on new virgin land with our club, we had stubble and pasture and the farmer is so interested in our hobby, which is nice. Anyway I found this makers ID tag I’ve googled the details but no joy, any ideas on date? Big signal at 3 inches deep set up 1 Xterra 705, also had this parifact, now I’m going for a kid of a traders pot?? It’s copper alloy looks hinged, again not sure. Some guys had Hammereds out and roman grits, so good day really. Regards

Maybe worth following the trail on Blaxton Engineering?

First thoughts are.......for first item, possible second one too

Could be stationary engine related, an oil pot cover perhaps. Would be an oil reservoir above a moving shaft to keep it lubricated.

Seen similar on old lister engines, these type of stationary engines were used to run things like sheep shearing equipment, and later for mobile milking parlours

Maybe a bit of a genealogy search of the Wilson-Blaxton surname on a well known site, can't be that many of them? ;)
