  1. If you happen to be in Bennington and have this with you, go east from the intersection of route 7 & 9. You will see the factory and show room. Just take it in and ask for a history.
  2. Nothing. Why? You have part of a pipe that has no markings so I am taking your word for it. No disrespect intended but I expected an entire pipe.
  3. I will take your word for this. I think you may have a surprise coming if you try selling it.
  4. If all else fails............maybe a bunn warmer rather than a bed warmer? Keep things moving.
  5. Lighter colors also hold moisture longer because they don't attract as much sun light to dry them out. That lesson was learned from terra cotta pots. Once a plant got pot bound the roots were around t...
  6. Go for a wall hanger. Micro wave popcorn is quicker and cheaper to make. If you have a wife you don't need a bed warmer.
  7. If you need to know more either call them or email them. They have a toll free number and a website. There are also links and or photo's to the different marks used over the years. The numbers are not...
  8. I love it. Never saw one before so learning today. Question: Do you tend to get bored when you use it or are you sharper when done? Heheheh! Smart ass question but you set yourself up for it.
  9. Excellent selection. I also like the mounting it in soapstone idea. It will really stand out. I have soapstone but nothing that large so I have inch thick imported Italian slate from an old pool table...
  10. Back in the 60's we used either gas or diesel or a mix for fuel just like the stoves. Everything was multifuel so you always had access to fuel. Even trucks were multifuel. More than once I fueled my ...
  11. The interesting thing about blackwood carvings is how they left the image inside the stump. That isn't easy to do. This one has unusual coloring.
  12. OK, just my 2 cents. It looks right for Rockwell but may well not be. It is cool regardless.
  13. First two pic's are Norman Rockwell. Very well could be Woolworth items.
  14. Are you saying this is maple wood or maple stain? I would more than agree with 20th century but not sure I could go along with hand cut pockets.
  15. I bet you can find a wrench to fit that head.
  16. I agree, I never saw a nail like that either. What makes you think it is a nail?
  17. This is probably a good place for you to look for answers from actual collectors. http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/
  18. 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...
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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...
  22. 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.
  23. 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...
  24. 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...
  25. 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...
  26. 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...
  27. 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 ...
  28. I believe if you take out the @gmail and leave the dot com you will go to his web site.
  29. Go on opening day (Thursday I think) there are always more vendors then. Better prices on Sunday but better picking on Thursday.
  30. AzTom has obviously done some extrusion work. I think these are a bit over size but quite similar in looks.
  31. 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 ...
  32. 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...
  33. 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...
  34. 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 ...
  35. 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...
  36. 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...
  37. 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...
  38. 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...
  39. Now all you need is the rail it mounts on.
  40. Actually I believe they were originally made for brass joints rather than copper.
  41. Think WWII or before when pipes were brass and plumbers male or female were called pipe fitters. No stick welders everything was gas.
  42. 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.
  43. Sign me up for sarcasm 902. I need the credits.
  44. 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!!
  45. I think you have a rail missing that this would have been mounted on.
  46. Not a problem for me because I ignore sideways pictures. I figure if it is important the owner will post it right side up.
  47. 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.
  48. 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.
  49. 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...
  50. 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...
  51. See more
