Hard to get excited about something as simple as a wallpaper trimmer- and people don't use wallpaper near as much as they used to, but when its a nice sculptural thing and well-presented like this, I can admire it for a bit.

The B G Hornet appears to have been an aviation sparkplug, this 12 pt box end wrench is for the 11/16" size.
There is a B G Service company still around today making specialty ignition components for extreme duty situations, I presume it's the same company.

Not too often do you get a chance to see an articulated steam locomotive in operation. This former logging engine worked in the northwest and was put on display at company headquarters when retired, but was rescued, restored and put back to work on the Black Hills Central in 2020. The 2-6-6-2 tank locomotive joins a near identical sister, #110 which was acquired in 1999.
The engineer seemed to be quite happy with his job.
