  1. Looks like a Kennedy. I had one for years and finally passed it along. They were the best there was and they outlast others.
  2. No doubt at all that someone hand painted it.
  3. Looking at your photo you have been reading and believing what you read on web sites. Keep looking and you will find it.
  4. I agree walksoftly but can't see on the finish where a top would have been mounted. Too much glare. Very well could have been alignment pins. I tend to doubt the holes were for screws because of where...
  5. Can you post a clear picture of the interior that shows at least one side wall?
  6. When I blow up pic #3 it appears there are metal pins broken off in two of the holes. Would that be correct?
  7. OK, 2 cents here. I don't think it is a night stand and I think the peg holes were intentional. You don't show the interior (that may or may not help) but I think this was originally a bible box cabin...
  8. I know you said Simplicity but I think others made equipment for them. All were quality units.
  9. Both of your photos show the same side. Can't see the front or pull start. If it has a front gear plate cover and a strap type start then it is probably a Gravely. Although I sooner think Troy Built. ...
  10. Send your photos to Troy Built. They have a web site. I believe this is one of their units with a Tecumseh engine.
  11. I would not agree with you blunder. I have jacked up three story houses with these type jacks. These will raise a building and WILL NOT reverse and back down. They were great for replacing sills befo...
  12. I agree with welzebub.
  13. It is an adz. The cutting edge and handle would indicate to me probably used for mortise gutting on post and beam. Timber adz would have a much different and heavier handle and a wider cutting edge. A...
  14. I don't remember the name either but my dad had the exact thing during the late 50's early 60's. Dad owned a perennial nursery and loved this monster. As he got older he went to a front tine smaller t...
  15. What does the handle have to do with using the tip of it? I would say it is multi purpose.
  16. Reading marks can be a pain. Try opening the photo in a photo editor and then reverse the colors. That will frequently bring out more detail and you can enlarge it within reason without it going to a ...
  17. LexaKay - I am sure if you look the piece over carefully you will see joinery you have never seen before. As an example (depending on when this was made) lay a mirror on the floor under the center ped...
  18. I would agree this is a coring tool and could have just as easily been used to core an apple or remove pits from olives. I question it being vintage. I have seen the handle design on stainless steel c...
  19. Cedar will color that way regardless of the sun as it ages. This is a fine piece and the after pictures on your other post brought it back. When you pass it on your kids will once again do the job. I ...
  20. Excellent job. Nice looking piece.
  21. I would say it is a kit car. You bought the kit and put it together. When I was a few decades younger they were popular projects.
  22. Now for my 2 cents. Your picture #3 is one of the better ones I have seen on here. Anyone can reproduce an Eastlake but few can match the craftsmanship. Your picture #3 captured the interlocking joint...
  23. Certainly a screw jack. Now if you find one made of wood you have a true treasure. Wooden ones were made to lift wagons and carts for repairs, wheel changes, axle packing etc. The base and screw were ...
  24. I am not able to see the interior symbols clearly (old eyes) so I will pass along a link. The link has oodles of ancient and not so ancient symbols and their meaning and origin. Quite a useful site wh...
  25. Keep in mind the scribe line on this was done with a razor blade which is a bit unusual
  26. I think Scottvez may have been close but a little conservative on the date of the dovetails. I would have said a bit older. This has locking top and bottom joints and a thin single center pin. There i...
  27. I would say it is an alcohol fueled soldering torch.
  28. This is a difficult call from pictures of any quality. I can tell you it is not one of the earliest made for several reasons. That doesn't mean it isn't a vintage piece. The feet on this are ground fl...
  29. Who was the design registered to?
  30. Yes, No and certainly maybe. The pictures are far to small to see much. I would agree it is "Eastlake Style" but not Eastlake. The joinery doesn't appear to live up to their standards. I would guess t...
  31. A number of years ago, around the 1960's give or take 10 years. Door to door salesmen sold encyclopedia sets. No computers back then so books were the thing. If you bought the set of encyclopedias fro...
  32. There were a number of well known companies that made lyre back chairs. Most had carvings and were fairly fancy or super fancy. There are lots of reproductions out there. You have a nice looking chair...
  33. That lid over the hole in the head answers lots of age old questions. Just don't tell my wife I said that. I will look for glue when she is sleeping. ;) Mani is the best
  34. Research Molthrop student desk. I think I spelled it right and I think it may have been made by them.
  35. I agree it is a steamer folding deck chair. Best to have it examined before you do any restoration. Originals even unmarked can bring a few hundred to over a thousand dollars. Even in this condition i...
  36. I gave up collecting ashtrays years ago but I have seen these. They were supposed to be a smokeless ashtray. The globe was supposed to keep the smoke from going out in the room and many had a liquid y...
  37. I wonder how you date an antique? I am older than this piece.
  38. I would say that is a Cochran chair. Does the seat fold up?
  39. With all due respect, you post what Wikipedia says. I wonder who Dorita is and how she happens to be mentioned? This post is like an unsolved mystery which I would enjoy hearing the end of. What is th...
  40. You are right about the diamond. These were also made and sold in Enfield, CT but without the diamond design holding the bail. That is where people need to use caution when they buy.
  41. Onions & Co. were saw and tool makers in Birmingham, UK. Try a UK site for your search. This is most probably late 1800's.
  42. You have an oldie there. Research it
  43. Fun memories for us old farts.
  44. This link is a newer one but the same. It explains how to use it. Yours is much older and probably difficult to research. http://www.ecrater.com/p/2303615/cooling-radiator-coil-fin-comb
  45. Actually it is a fin comb. I also have a couple of them. This one was made for a car radiator while mine were made for AC and also car radiators. The bottom band on this would have slid up to open the...
  46. Looks like gaff hooks to me.
  47. PS: Just for information, people might estimate me at 100 years old but I am a bit shy of it.
  48. It was called a valet chair and also a butler chair.
  49. Slackjack - I am learning something new here. Can you provide a link showing dolphins on a Morris chair? I would be the first to enjoy seeing it. I wasn't aware Morris made these. I know companies lik...
  50. You do find the unusual toracat. Nice looking piece.
