    sorry Gina that wasnt very clear was it ,in pic 3 the item on the left with gaged edges is the wedge , you drill a whole put the wedge in place the item you want to bolt on top then put the bolt in and tighten , the tightening action opens the wedge part very tightly until it can go no more then the bolt continues to tighten but now it tightens down the thing you have bolted there , it works wery well and the same design is still in use today
    cheers ian
    PS i dont have a modern one to hand but ill find one and post a pic for you then you will recognize it
    cheers again ian

    Hey there,
    The oval shaped thing is placed under uniform buttons to clean them with out runing the fabric,I think this is from World War 2 or early post-war.
    Im not sure if it is. Hear is one i found and its abit different. Or were there different kinds?

    Hi Gina,
    Good to see you're still at it, there's really no need to thank me, I just wanted to help with your quest. When anyone starts in this hobby it's really easy to get disillusioned quite quickly if you don't find too much and worst case even leave the hobby!!!
    Having been searching for quite a few years I just thought, if I was there where would I search first?, I'm pleased you're getting results and with you now finding unused and still wrapped vehicle parts (very interesting) it could mean a military store of surplus equipment was dumped at the end of the conflict. If so, then there could well be plenty more interesting 'gems' still to be recovered.
    Keep up the good work, I look forward to seeing your next finds.
    Best Wishes.
    LUCKYSTRIKE
