Nuts and bolts…

Early patent diagrams for something. How do we know these today?

Cracked by: udupendra , Ananth , Goyal , apar , Pawankumar Hegde , Rogi , dineshk , Mikey , username , jowens , krudebox , Dhan , Bharath , Thejas V R , Raghuvansh , shenoyvarun86 , Shwetha Maiya and quaziluffy

This question was, apparently, previously featured on shenoyvarun86’s blog. The petering was completely accidental :-)

Answer:
Meccano, or erector sets. Pic is from the original patent disclosure by Frank Hornby.
