  1. This is probably a good place for you to look for answers from actual collectors. http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/
  2. How did you happen to figure out how to change it? Seems lots of people have the same issue. What did you do to correct it? I have lots of phone pictures and it seems to depend on how I hold the phone...
  3. There are different types of bottle wrenches but I believe this will fit different size fittings on bottled gas tanks. I have them for my cutting torch tanks and my welder.
  4. Very nice. I still have 10 or 12 decks we saved. Mostly Hoyle, Maverick branded. They are fun collectables. At one time we had them from different casinos and even prison cards that inmates got.
  5. I wonder how many people ever operated one of these snow plows? Work nights and no heater. We finally got a reflector heater that ran on small propane tanks. Now days they probably have heaters. Ni...
  6. kerry hit it right on. None of it is antique but all of it is vintage. Fairly common items. I used to collect the screw jacks when I lived up North.
  7. 40 years ago I used to metal detect on the prairie out in Kansas. Darn old barbed wire kept setting off my detector. I rolled it up and hung it in trees. I often wonder how many dollars I hung in tree...
  8. I have a couple of sites on my other computer I can post tomorrow. I am not a collector but fell into a bunch of knives I needed to research. Another member here assisted me and I happened to save som...
  9. If your sheath is original to the knife you are going to need to go back a number of years. You are looking at the knife, look at the clasp for a moment. When did you see a modern knife with that type...
  10. http://www.austinsculpture.co.uk/ The link above is for a site in England that has a small supply of Austin items. They are good about answering emails and you can browse their collection and price...
  11. I have one very similar but mine is marked Pakistan. Mine is from the early 1990's. They were popular with kids back then. My son bought this one for his collection. It was all he could afford at the ...
  12. I believe if you take out the @gmail and leave the dot com you will go to his web site.
  13. Go on opening day (Thursday I think) there are always more vendors then. Better prices on Sunday but better picking on Thursday.
  14. AzTom has obviously done some extrusion work. I think these are a bit over size but quite similar in looks.
  15. idaustinprodsculptures@gmail.com That email address is for a guy named Charlie King. He is trying to build a database to document all Austin Production items. He is a bit slow answering (three or ...
  16. No it isn't actually a native piece. Austin Productions is no longer in business. Information on their different works is difficult to come by but there is an individual building a database of their i...
  17. They came in a little wooden keg originally. Today people want the kegs without the nails. If you are near Burlington County try the Columbus Farmers Market. I think they have a web site. It is on rou...
  18. My mother in law had two or three of these she put out at Christmas time. That was in the 1960's. She also had other items the same color with the same pink rose. I wonder if it may have been part of ...
  19. Good lord don't pull nails. I can almost be positive the nails were made in Bridgewater, Mass. My guess would be Tremont Nail Company. They are machine cut nails commonly just called cut nails. Tremon...
  20. I am not seeing any oak or maple. From what I see it is both soft and hard pine. Hard pine is actually a softwood but it is the hardest of the pine family. There is both long and short needled pine an...
  21. I can't answer your questions but I can provide you with an idea for research. You have an archer on the back of the chair much like William Tell. There was a company called Tell City Chair Co. also k...
  22. You don't worry about the cops here. Every day they arrest them for molesting kids, DUI, domestic violence, bribes etc. etc. I have a big dog, a big gun and a bad attitude. Bring it on. We live on the...
  23. Now all you need is the rail it mounts on.
  24. Actually I believe they were originally made for brass joints rather than copper.
  25. Think WWII or before when pipes were brass and plumbers male or female were called pipe fitters. No stick welders everything was gas.
  26. Best seat in the house. We still joke about it today and people have no idea what we are talking about. I love watching their faces as they try to figure it out. Not rich but memories are golden.
  27. Sign me up for sarcasm 902. I need the credits.
  28. I am like a duck....it rolls off my back. I am totally amazed people buy an item and then say "What is it". DUH!!
  29. I think you have a rail missing that this would have been mounted on.
  30. Not a problem for me because I ignore sideways pictures. I figure if it is important the owner will post it right side up.
  31. It isn't an antique and it also isn't hardwood. I think your dates may be pretty close. Condition is everything and this looks pretty well taken care of. It certainly has value and is a nice piece.
  32. I have one with a similar design but only about half the size. Mine has an electric cord attached as it has a foot warmer in it. I believe mine is marked 1929 but not positive.
  33. I will give you my best shot. I would say the seat (seat only) is either maple or birch. The finish on it tells me it was painted previously and then stripped. I would guess original to be somewhere 1...
  34. Brutally honest. Everyone thinks they have a gold mine and that is fine. Call it what it is so they are aware of it. If they then decide to make a false representation when they sell it, that is up to...
  35. Obviously someone chopped this. None the less they found a buyer who was unaware. Both the value and the age were taken away. An item it only as old as the newest part. Buyer beware.
  36. Interesting that someone would line the interior with metal and use cheap board panel for the inside of the door.
  37. I have seen them used for picture frames, mirror frames and painted. The actual chair is what I would say is kindling wood. The seat is a totally different story. I would certainly think more than twi...
  38. As an after thought I probably need to expand a bit on my reply above. I have to assume you are young and only familiar with modern indoor plumbing. You probably never heard of one seaters or two seat...
  39. I laughed so hard I cried on this one. I wasn't going to post but someone else may need a laugh in their day. You have a vintage toilet seat lid for a seat and a hodge podge of parts to make it a chai...
  40. I am not sure what your point is. Shipping does not constitute a profit, it is a cost of doing business. You are comparing marked v. unmarked items. I will stick with my statement she paid high retail...
  41. No problem Tube. Have a good night.
  42. I will wait for the validation that you made a good buy. Anyone can say you did good or bad. I am sure Tube will show us actual sales to show you did well. I didn't happen to find any that actually so...
  43. No problem aeroslove. The debate isn't about you it is about the toaster. I am sure TubeAmp will post for us to show others who have made a profit. The children in the yard is his form of sarcasm dire...
  44. Yes the kids are out there. But they see the real world not the dream world. They know the value of a lollipop. Pretty smart kids.
  45. I wonder how she did fine? This is a common item that doesn't sell and it is unmarked. Yes, you can find them online from .99 cents to $47 but nobody wants them. I fail to see doing OK @ $22 if she in...
  46. PS: If you were looking for value.............keep your day job.
  47. These old boys never wore out. I have a bunch of them but mine are more rusty. Long ago some genius decided we needed both SAE and Metric. That is where the odd sizes came along. Now everyone knows th...
  48. You should be able to research this in the DOD national ammunition database.
  49. Pre WWII, ammo box for belt ammunition. The B= belt, an L=link
  50. Etsy and Ruby Lane are way over priced. They don't even begin to be realistic most of the time. eBay is worthless for prices unless you look at the actual sale price and even then it can be inflated d...
