In my spare time I like to restore old things like furniture, vintage kitchen appliances, etc.
I would like to share this rather scarce three legged cast iron typewriter stand. Remember typewriters?
It was kind of rough when I got it. I made a new top, sanded down and repainted the base, cleaned and lubricated the mechanisms and moved the manufacturers nameplate from the underneath side to the top, for effect.
After I stained the top English Chestnut, I gave it a good conditioning with Howard Feed-N-Wax, Beeswax & Orange Oil.
enjoy

    I have one just like it, was never sure of it's exact purpose. Works great holding my antique slot machine.

    thank you very much rocker-sd,
    Yes, it is a typewriter stand, my old top still has the marks where the typewriter sat. I could see where it could have many uses. I really like the industrial look of them.
