Week 22: Cartridge Maker

This instrument is a cartridge maker comprising a vice mechanism which could be used to attach it to a work bench and two handle operated chambers for compressing, ejecting and crimping the end of cartridges.  

It was made by George W. Hawksley in, we believe, the 19th century.
