  1. Kind of sounds like that was copied word for word out of a book.
  2. Good looking job. Color matching is always a major issue. I have had good luck with markers in the short term but in the long run they tend to not do so well unless the surface has been sealed. I have...
  3. I wonder if you could post a picture of the bottom side? Are the screw threads threaded wood? Looking at the very bottom of picture #2 there appears to be a thin piece of wood in a slot. Does that sli...
  4. Obviously homeland security will be monitoring this post so I will pass.
  5. That 70 inch tall headboard is a bit unusual but I am sure you know what you own.
  6. It is a tea cart with a glass serving tray. If you try researching it you will find plenty of them with the same wheels. They are selling for $20 on silvertownauctions.com. Mass produced in Asia and m...
  7. I agree with agh, what are the markings? Is it marked 24k? How did you decide it is 30's vintage?
  8. Oh yeh! Now I know where you are coming from. I don't smoke that stuff. Thanks for the reply.
  9. Interesting condition for having been bought 35 years ago.
  10. Some versions of this did come with a little hammer. I remember my grandfather always having one of these in his shirt pocket. He tended the one room school house and then the new school house when it...
  11. Beautiful - You present a reasonable question about this being a shim. Now if you will provide the information about the plane it was used in that would help. It isn't uncommon for a shim to be ground...
  12. Research Anglo-Indian Planters chair. Made of teak in England. This is a modern reproduction. Some had folding arms and others extending arms.
  13. Good call Blunder. When the final curtain goes down I intend to be laughing. Kerry I have started marking everything regardless of where it is going. Many family photo's and items are from the Hild...
  14. I have a little one in mind who has a mom who will see to putting it away. My time is getting short so I am finding new keepers. Some things I have but I never owned I am simply the keeper until the t...
  15. I gotta love it. I have an original that my mother got for her 10th birthday. She wore it one day and over wound it. It was packed away and never worn again. She gave it to me before she died and said...
  16. I have studied a few dolls myself. I tend to shy away from the painted ones. Mani knows her stuff with stuffed dolls.
  17. We have fruit rats here in Florida all year long. Our orange trees attract them out back. I use Tom Kat rat bait and my BB gun to control them. Can't fire anything but a BB gun in the city unless you ...
  18. I have expected them to come to my door for 14 years. Sleeping isn't an option sometimes. Thanks for the love....I believe I have your email and will respond but not right at this moment.
  19. Thanks for looking.
  20. Mani if you will settle for a chick rather than a chicken I will send my wife right away. Please be aware she will arrive C.O.D. plus shipping costs and a nominal handling charge. Also be aware that ...
  21. Valentino - The last picture looks like a release door for pigeons. Was there lots of bird droppings around it? They will use a large door but a smaller one seems to be their preference as it is more ...
  22. Fingerhut has tried a little of everything and failed at most everything except selling junk for huge prices. Late 90's when I went back to college to get my A+ certification and network certification...
  23. Fingerhut actually started and owned a chair company that became SOI Fingerhut to produce chairs around 1950-52 I think. They were mass produced and as I recall possibly in Ohio. It didn't work out we...
  24. You see a ruin. I see a monument left to be appreciated. Thanks for sharing it, I love the photo's.
  25. He kept the hinges for the same reason the last guy did. They are worth nothing but scrap price but they are also expensive to buy new if you have old that will work. That "T" hinge in the center look...
  26. I never happened to hear the term but believe it or not I have worked in coffins. I was going to build my own but decided cremation was quicker and easier. A much smaller plane would have been used fo...
  27. Unless the iron has a really drastic curve to it, it wasn't used for forming. I also wonder where the term coffin plane came from?? Unless it was used by a coffin maker. This is a common smooth plane ...
  28. I don't know the maker but I can assure you the iron being ground round was intentional and quite important. It is just as important today if you are doing a period restoration on a piece.
  29. You have done well. Most people overlook keys, yet most people sell them for pocket change. They are a good investment whether to sell or to trade. An antique with a lock but no key is worth more with...
  30. I think these were sold as a kit around the same place you found latch hook rug kits and things like that. These look like someone really took their time and did a good job.
  31. The last picture, at least to me is the most important one and it is a blur. Can you post a clear side view of how the rockers are attached and also the back behind where the arms attach?
  32. Time for me to leave this one alone and let someone else answer.
  33. I always love these posts. Being an old country boy I have owned a few pigs and known a few more. You don't need a snouter you need to let them root until they are satisfied. Clipping their snout can ...
  34. I believe you posted this before. It still is not original and it still is not 1909 vintage. The cast may well be vintage or even antique but nothing else is original. I know you don't like my reply b...
  35. I can't see any of the joinery but what I do see I love. This is so crude it is beautiful. It was never finished....you can still see the saw kerf marks. Very unusual and the kerf marks are unusual in...
  36. You hit the nail on the head TubeAmp. I haven't seen one of these in umpteen years.
  37. Scott is correct it is the wolf emblem. We had the same one in what was called webelos between cub scouts and boy scouts back in the 60's. I still have mine but it certainly isn't bright and shining. ...
  38. You can see oodles of them on eBay for a few dollars but no buyers. These aren't old enough to command any value.
  39. Boy scout neckerchief slide for webelos. Not WWI era, more 1960's or later
  40. I doubt you will find much on this piece. It is actually parts of two different pieces with new hardware to the left and original hardware tucked away to the right. The contour of the left side is dif...
  41. My grandmother died at 87 years old and she owned a ninja turtle....does that make the ninja turtle an antique?
  42. Sounds like a wonderful idea. But before you refinish it size it up. Most of these were 26 inches or less wide. It may not hold all the make up someone who refinishes it needs.
  43. OK, I will take your word for it. But I will also bet it never rolled over anything. Maybe inside something but not over it. We will see what the others come up with. Fun item.
  44. If you hold the metal end gently and crank the wooden handle would the metal end then spin?
  45. If you search for it as a fireplace screen you will never find it. Fireplace screens were normally made of a brass mesh material and they prevented burning embers from popping out into the room. This ...
  46. If all else fails Vermont has a historical society and museum. You could email them a photo and request information. http://vermonthistory.org/
  47. The most logical question I can ask is, does it have the Lion Foundry mark and registration date on the back? I have never researched Lion Foundry but it isn't uncommon for a foundry to sell their...
  48. You need to wait for Mani and be prepared to answer questions. Who it belonged to isn't relative. She will want details about how it was made and what it is stuffed with. He looks like he has been rep...
  49. Looks like a masher to make squeezing s. Pretty small scale but if you were only making a few jugs you didn't anything more. I have only seen them used to make hard cider, usually in a cellar or back ...
  50. Someone is trying to take my title as most cantankerous.
