  3. Very good ! Two down and two to go! Two points to slackjack!
  4. Sorry, no one is even close. This will be interesting! Thanks for the loves!
  5. I'm thinking you should send that to me for a complete and thorough analys, and send the cool knife as well!
  6. How about vintage root canal tools? Yikes!
  7. Thanks, I also collect odd tools that perform simple tasks, but often defy logic in their use. I might post a couple in the near future.
  8. It is a cork boring tool sharpener, it sharpens the tubes that put holes in corks for laboratory use. A nice find.
  9. Thanks for all of the loves, I sure do appreciate it!
  10. I agree, this is from about 1905. I owned a couple of these years ago. There should be a counter near the top on one side, also a lever midway on the pump to select pint, quart, or gallon delivery. Th...
  11. Great item!
  12. Oley 2015 coming up soon, I will be there!
  13. It looks like a Suzuki motorcycle "S" to me, Google search Suzuki sign images and have a look.
  14. Look up spencer rigging knife on Google images and wikiapedia for your answer.
  15. This is a yachtsmans rigging knife with a marlin spike. This repairing/maintaining sail rope/rigging.
  16. Advertising is my favorite art!
  17. An Irish mail.
  18. Yeah, what BB2 said! if you don't collect something , you can't be trusted!
  19. Thanks for the loves and all the info!
  20. You might need some help!
  21. I have a later version of this that I use a couple of times a week on invoices. This paper fastener ought to put back into production as it never needs staples!
  22. The iron ring on the one end tells me that it made for striking with a mallet or a hammer. This could possibly be for driving down the ends of kegs or barrels. What other cool stuff do you find in th...
  23. A lot of these travelers did not have markings for measuring. They were marked with talc/chalk and the revolutions were counted to determine the lenght of steel that needed to be cut to make the "tire...
  24. I will try that company Monday and see if they will enlighten me with that information, thanks for your reply.
  25. This a toothed stone hammer used by stone masons. A pretty nice example of an old tool.
  26. Priceless !
  27. Looks like "Gloria" was pretty proud of that piece, I know I would!
  28. Need a LOVE IT A LOT BUTTON as another choice!
  29. An old blacksmiths forge possibly made by Champion Forge. Looks to be in decent condition but missing the tuyere and possibly some other parts, a nice find!
  30. A very unique lighter , probably trench art. It looks like an old miners lamp/lantern. Google search miners lamp, images.
  31. Leave it as is! It will never look any better than it does now, the condition is awesome!
  32. I think they mean vegetable ivory , from the Tagua nut . Google search that and you will get better results!
  33. You know they made nose putty as well , you're gonna need a can of that to keep your can company!
  34. Reminds me of a coffin plate, very cool!
  35. Advertising, some of the best art ever created! Very cool!
  36. His real name is Bibendum, Google it.
  37. Looks to be a repro, this would have cost a lot more if it was real.
  38. Glue pot for hide glue or hot glue, missing insert. These are like a double boiler, water in bottom, glue in the top. Do a google search for glue pot and search images.
  39. Turn the bike upside down and see if there is a serial number on the short tube that the pedal crank passes through. This number or series of numbers and letters can be used to determine make and yea...
  40. I think this is for a glue pot, the insert and possibly the lid are missing.
  41. Thanks for the recent loves! The people on this sure post some awesome art glass! I believe I am hooked glass now!
  42. These are called "cuts". Dates are not usually on these and are usually made of Linotype metal , similar to lead with a copper wash. Google search " printer cut" for more information.
  43. Usually when a gauge has a red indicator it is usually for limits or a danger condition. Has pressure been applied to test this or is this revolution counter operated by a driven cable such as a tacho...
  44. It sure does look like that bike , doesn't it? Interesting site, thanks.
  45. Looks like it might be a carpet installers tool or part of one.
