Still wondering what a flugel pump is? Is it for blowing the flugelhorn?  ;D

Eccentrics rather than cams, look carefully at the clue picture of the working parts, a shaft, with 3 eccentrics, and 3 tight fitting rubber things, ( I say things because if I said what they are, it would give the game away) The eccentrics create a negative pressure inside the rubber bits, at the same time sliding them over a series of holes in a port block. The reason for ther e beins multiple eccentrics etc is to ensure a continuous flow, rather than an intermittent ont.....

Dear Nick,

 
The only thing I have in the Stores at the moment that looks remotely like this is a 7hp compressed air motor fixed on a bed to a hydraulic pump. It came off a twin boom drilling rig I bought for for very little some centuries ago(!), from the Redburn Mine only a matter of days before the pumps were switched off - I think this about 1976. With the help of the Workshop crew, and a number of ten pound notes(!), and the normal good natured swearing(!), we took the booms off, and everything else quickly salvageable, but the rest of this poor tracked machine lies 500ft under water now in the main drive. What a job to squeeze those booms into the cage! I have the p.graphs! What annoyed the Crew was that someone had not charged up the remaining 3t battery loco, so we had to push everything about a mile on six flatbeds! Wonderful days never to be repeated.

 
So, after this preamble, is this very nice shiny piece of eqpt. of yours connected with compressed air?

 
Kind Regards, Bernard

No Bernard, unfortunately not, driven by electric motorn either directly or by chain/belt. Sone portable versions can be driven by a diesel engine. Another, if obscure clue....Think 1960's Sci Fi B movies / comics, think of the names given  to robots etc, eg Tobor the Great. The name of the manufacturer sounds like something out of one of those. Is it time, do you think, for me to reveal the answer to the unanswered poser from earlier? :-)) :-)) :-))
Regards,
Nick.

I believe that might be called a snubber, a device that is fitted to a mooring warp to absorb the stretch loads in choppy conditions

It is definitely called a snubber sold in all good marine chandlers .Takes the snatch out of the warp if on a bouncy mooring.

Snubbers work quite well - I used to use them on my boat - not as good as the steel spring
type but a lot more quiet when you are trying to sleep at night.

Dear All,
The title I have for it is a Moring Compensator. Now, not being quite certain whether it has another name already mentioned, I think we will call it a day on this one! Over to anyone!
Regards, Bernard
p.s. Just had/having a very quick look in, much to do at moment.  Thanks Ned, appreciated.
p.p.s. Ned, could you PM me please to advise how I get around the questions etc.. Bob told me in an email but I can't find it!
