What is this?

I was given item, along with a CNR railway lantern when a garage was cleaned out. I think it says patented Dec.23, 1890 on it. Anyone recognize it? Any value?

Tempted a few days ago when I noticed a 7500W for $649 and a 3300W for $299 at Princess auto. Wonder how long these last and is there a generator out there not made in China?

Idler wheel retread

I have many idlers that need new rubber. The mold was made for someone down under who had several idlers redone. Is this process possible at home or best left to the professionals? Phil
