  1. I didn't intend to be nice, I intended to be honest. This hammer has a fiberglass handle and is not worth as much as the man who used it. I respect the owner not the hammer.
  2. I can't tell you who made this but I can tell you about the person who used it. Look at the butt end....see all the battle scars? Some things don't require a strike by a steel head. A person with some...
  3. Looks like late 1800 early 1900's six plate box stove. If it was earlier it would probably only have three legs. Some of these go for really nice money restored. Keep in mind restoration has a price. ...
  4. Agram - you must have a school near you, schools have microscopes and microscopes see better than a loop. Perhaps a teacher would help research this as a class project. Tech schools down here do all k...
  5. I believe what you have is an old hand crank punch press. The chuck should come off to replace the cutter and/or put on a grommet press tip.
  6. Looks like a modern version of a parachute cord knife. Years ago the Army issued one that had a hook and blade both and it was a switch blade so you only needed one hand to open it. If your chute got ...
  7. I would venture to say this was built by the original owner as opposed to being commercially made. The door and the joint you show are not professionally done as they are sloppy with over cuts. Now do...
  8. Replace seeming with seeing above.
  9. It may just be me but I find your post a bit confusing. The age of the houses has no bearing on the cabinet and I am totally lost with the remark about the camera use!! The camera took blurry pictures...
  10. The production dates of the rifles has nothing to do with the knife.
  11. 127/181 written in lumber crayon would not indicate a limited edition. I sooner think they are locator numbers used in a warehouse or else they indicate an order progress. By that I mean this is numbe...
  12. James Graham is the name of the foundry where it was produced. Does this one have ports to hook up gas? There should be a metal plate on the back and possibly another on the inside of the oven door. V...
  13. Interesting clamp. Closest thing I have seen is a dowel threading clamp. You would lock a dowel in it and cut the threads. I never saw one with cork jaws but cork would be softer than wood so the dowe...
  14. The very top mark on this should have read: Ranch Oak. That was one of the names for the series of designs they made.
  15. Research A. Brandt Furniture Company and you will find your table and other similar tables. Yours is probably 1960's or early 70's. Their furniture is very collectible and also very difficult to find....
  16. Look at the back side, which you didn't show. Your information will be there for research.
  17. You should start your search with Bagatelle Games and then go to reproductions of their games. This piece is made of multiple boards which causes red flags in terms of original. I believe kits were so...
  18. Much as I enjoy chairs, I never met anyone who would go in a burning building to save a chair. Interesting story.
  19. Phil is right on.
  20. I can't say anything about the maker but I can give you some first hand folk lore as it might be called. Kids did not touch this table. It was called a game table and only brought out when company cam...
  21. I always love a good hand saw. This one doesn't have the starter tooth on the top. That may help you to zero in on the age of it. I'm not sure when they did away with the starter tooth but I am sure y...
  22. If you researched it even a little you already know the answer.
  23. I still have some of the old push points but no driver so I use a screw driver. These were really handy and a time saver.
  24. There is a big push on over in Tampa to save the old cigar factories. Most of them are really ugly buildings but they do represent history. Many have been torn down in the name of progress. One is now...
  25. Nice display item. Believe it or not they are trying to restore the old cigar factories in Tampa.
  26. Nice looking chair indeed. Oak and Ash are difficult to tell the difference, especially once a finish is applied. Ash was often substituted for Oak and nobody knew the difference. Odd part is that tod...
  27. You go for the traditional, I learned old world techniques so obviously we have a major difference of opinion or language barrier. You are quoting what you read on Google rather than speaking from act...
  28. Maybe a steak and drinks for two.
  29. In theory you are right, depending where you come from. Both rabbet and dado joints are cut with the same cutter or technique and the terms are commonly inter changed. I suppose you could say groove, ...
  30. So you have seen an authenticated cradle with slats in a machine cut rabbet that are turn of the century. I guess I stand corrected. People here teach me every day.
  31. I would call it vintage as opposed to antique. From what little you can see in the pictures, the parts were machine cut. I call this somewhat of a transition cradle. Earlier pieces had a full wooden b...
  32. I think someone is being generous (by a few centuries) with the age. This has applied moldings. Perhaps it was used by 13 or 14 generations, that makes more sense.
  33. I never thought about these being collectable. I keep nuts and bolts in them out in my shop. I need to look them over....I know I have a couple old Disney tins out there.
  34. I can't love or like it but I can respect it for what it is.
  35. We have some coin silver spoons from the 1893 worlds fair. They are worth about $10 if you can find a buyer.
  36. OK, forget looking up Monterey. I am not sure where you came up with the term " hand chiseled" but you drew my eye to the spreaders/stretchers and they have been pinned aftermarket. I hadn't noticed t...
  37. Never judge it by the nails alone. I have boxes full of antique nails and brass tacks. Look at the overall construction. Looking at these I wonder how high the seat is off the floor?
  38. I don't know the emblem but the chair looks like something Monterey chair might have made years ago.
  39. Gotta take care of your woman.
  40. I may get her a new splitting maul if she does a good job.
  41. Looks like a felling axe. Your picture #1 makes it look like the right side has seen damage. That is probably not the case. The cutting edges were ground at different angles so one tool did two differ...
  42. Also, if the seat is 24" or less at the front (widest point) it is a standard size. When you look at the seat look for a thick, one piece slab seat. This seat looks about 1 1/8" thick.
  43. I like that oversize seat statement. Oversize relative to what? A 90 pound person? A 400 pound person? A tape measure comes in handy around here. If you don't know how to read it just go for the close...
  44. There was a dispute over made in Germany because it didn't identify east or west Germany. This is probably 1970's or newer.
  45. Interesting I told you the measurements before you measured it.
  46. You don't need to measure your butt find an antique chair and measure it. They run from 14 to 20 inches at the front for a normal/standard chair. They also run a normal/standard height of 36 inches. O...
  47. From here it looks like an old water pipe reamer (well used).
  48. I am sitting on the fence on this chair. It isn't original but it has all the design traits of a Pelham & Shell rocker. Once again we have someone who doesn't own a tape measure. The chair should have...
  49. It is unique isn't it? Nice looking little piece.
  50. Closest thing I ever saw would be a cigar rolling table. Certainly unusual design.
