Another mystery pic to test everyone. Picture taken in New Zealand.




As usual educated guesses and idle speculation welcome.

Hi Christophe - If you know, go right ahead. As a Monotype Geek you SHOULD know.

It's the mould oiler for the lead, rule and furniture moulds on a Monotype super caster.

Spare parts list plate 26, part 39SL.
Got it on my caster too:
