  1. Those old stations where I lived were a gathering place for the latest gossip and the newest dirty jokes. I remember 18 cents a gallon. My dad would give me a one gallon glass jug and two dimes. The t...
  2. I have only seen them as 71 but perhaps there was a rerun of them in 78 for fund raising. In 70 when it happened I was on riot control for a black panther trial in New Haven, CT. We were directed to W...
  3. Years ago, before X-Acto knives they made various craft and hobby precision knife kits. You could buy one barrel (handle) and the blades came in all sizes and shapes depending on the intended use. I d...
  4. I appreciate the update also. Learning can be fun.
  5. The spring loaded shelf in the left pedestal should pull all the way out and swing upward and lock in place. It would have had a typewriter on it and it could be tucked away when not in use. Very comm...
  6. It was a double bit axe but someone sure abused it. Probably discarded after they broke it. Probably chopping a root and hit a rock.
  7. They are still in business. Why not ask them?
  8. As the proud owner of a JD tractor I love it. Looks fine. I got mine after a stroke to care for the yard and haul stuff. It may not be huge but it runs like a Deere ;)
  9. The company was sold in 1981 and went out of business in 84. That is the bad news. The good news is there is a national Westmoreland Milk Glass Collector site. I will post the link below. Good Luck...
  10. The mark is the mark they used in 1982. Westmoreland inside the circle.
  11. It looks like a not so well done reproduction of a Norquist game table. They used the same type top and legs. An actual Norquist would command a few thousand this one would struggle to get $50.
  12. Try researching it as a fold out rather than a flip out. They come in all kinds of configurations. Some are make up tables with a mirror inside that folds down into the table. some like this one were ...
  13. When I was growing up these were called a multi tool. They were used on various equipment around the farm but depending on the sizes they also made them for various size gas fittings which were also c...
  14. Looks like a spirit level and I believe Rabone was British made brass bound hardwood. American ones are normally brass bound mahogany. Not positive but think yours is probably early 1900's.
  15. Memory doesn't always serve me well but I believe that was called a rolling head pry bar. Tap the chisel end of the hook under a board and simply push and let the rounded hook give you mechanical adva...
  16. Blunder you are on the opposite end of the ram rod than me. I am aware of the packing end but I was looking at the other end. I'm not sure how you missed the battle of Bennington or Fort Ti. Very educ...
  17. Pictures and narrative don't say much. Based on what I see it is a flux syringe for fine soldering. They aren't made of metal anymore. This is a throw away world so they are made cheap. Depending on t...
  18. I would be willing to bet I am older than this table.
  19. You don't give any useful measurements and closer pictures of the crest board design would help. It is a two piece slab seat from the looks and what little of the design on the crest board that shows ...
  20. I have not seen much of this stuff except battle of Bennington and Fort Ticonderoga. That rod looks like a broken ram rod to me. Just my opinion. You will find the same metal end online if you google ...
  21. In looking at the way your chair is put together I would call it a Shaker "STYLE" chair as opposed to being an actual Shaker chair. The style is right but the construction is wrong. That doesn't mean ...
  22. Let me start by saying you got it for a good price. What you are calling inlay is actually a glued on piece of veneer. That shows in picture #3. It has some obvious mismatches if the pictures are accu...
  23. You can post four pictures or open a new post. Not really a need to but you can do it.
  24. There is a site called replacements dot com that will research the pattern for free. I have used them several times to identify patterns. They buy but for pennies and sell for a fortune but they do re...
  25. I tend to agree with Scott but not at all sure if it is oak or ash from the pictures.
  26. This was probably made by Pakistan Cutlery Co. I believe I have two of their folding knives and one fixed blade. They were quite popular in the late 1980's. They were inexpensive then and have little ...
  27. An original Jacobean should have mortise and tenon joints that are pegged together. I don't happen to see that in the photo's. Many times a dealer will say it is Jacobean or Stickley or Shaker when th...
  28. The information below is from another collector site: Thank you for your email. The blue heart mystery continues. Just today I saw one of these jugs (a 5-gallon one) listed for sale on an antiques ...
  29. I still have one from Kelly tire that is late 50's early 60's. These were originally given to garages and tire dealers to have on their counter and tables. It was a way of drawing your attention to th...
  30. Tru Temper made these and advertised them as an ice auger and a bulb planter. They didn't work well for either. This one has a spoon bit so was used to enlarge a hole made by a cork screw type auger ...
  31. Are you sure they are glass? From what I read and see online the company sold a good deal of handcrafted items made of polished marble.
  32. Look at the blade in pic 1 if it is like the one on the link I post, then it is a spoke shave. If the blade is flat then it is a pull plane. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Outillage-Darex-55-Draw-P...
  33. Glad you said that and not me UncleRon. I get in enough trouble. However I will question eagle heads. Bring up picture #3 and notice where there were two fangs. Eagles are hook bill and don't have ...
  34. Yes probably Columbian Expo item. There were thousands of different items sold. I collected the silver items years ago but they weren't a good investment. I ended up just passing it all along to the n...
  35. I will throw in 2 cents. While this may be branded Stanley, you may learn it was actually made by Millers Falls and the Stanley brand applied.
  36. All I ever heard these called is bird beak scissors. They are designed after a number of birds and I was told used in conjunction with a bird beak ribbon puller.
  37. Where we went parking it was free. Sorry, I couldn't resist saying that.
  38. Probably made 1953 or earlier. I have only one left that was brought to the USA from Mexico during the Korean war. Memory fails me but they were made on an island off Mexico. The one I have left I cal...
  39. I will give my 2 cents for thought. You might want to consider whether it was the actual finishing touch as the top piece for an actual gazebo. It may have been purchased to use on the top of a gazebo...
  40. I was able to find an archive on the company models for 1935 - 36. Your model number was not listed. About all I learned that I felt was useful is the "W". They made coal, wood and gas fueled stoves. ...
  41. You probably can't find any info on this as far as maker. They were mass produced and sold to flower shops. I can tell you I saw many of them during the 1960's. I worked for a florist back then and t...
  42. Looks like a light house at the end of a jetty.
  43. Probably Vulcan, they are out of Romania and make vulcanizes for a number of applications. Back in the days of tires with inner tubes every garage had a vulcanizer.
  44. If your dad was a bird lover, obviously he was. It didn't matter the species of the statue, all that mattered is that it was a bird and you cared enough to give it to him. Your dad and my dad were qui...
  45. Tahiti1 - I only breed parrots but I am familiar with other species and this one struck me as a Cockatoo. Probably a female signaling a male, NOT NOW, I HAVE A HEADACHE! They will fold their tail down...
  46. Your bird has a large crown on his head and a tail with somewhat of a downward bend. Check images of a cockatoo.
  47. I would say the insignia is an attempt at the Great Seal also known as the Coat of Arms of the United States.
  48. PoliticalPinbacks Yes, they were called Jesus clips at one point. I forgot that but you are 100% right.
  49. Blunder, you young pups never heard lots of things. That is why you are here live and learn.
  50. slackjack a lay shaft is in a gear box. This is better called a counter shaft because of where it mounts and the fact that gears don't drive it, pullies drive it indirectly from the power source using...
