  1. I am loving that a lot !
  2. This tool is called a trammel. Usually six to twelve inches long it was used to raise or lower a betty lamp. The example you have is HUGE ! Perhaps to hold a pot over a fire for cooking. A signed and ...
  3. Go to this forum and ask for info as you have here. You may have to join to post, free and easy. Just don't ask for value, as you have not he...
  4. If there are answers YOU have them. Remove the pendulum and remove the movement from the case. Look at the rear plate and check for manufacturers logo or name. Come back with that info. It isn't rocke...
  5. Wallpaper trimmer. I don't think they use them anymore because of the way wallpaper is made today.
  6. A Fanning Mill ! I have never seen the like ! Another gold star for the Rustfarm. I don't know how he does it.
  7. Rustfarm is my hero ! He is as sharp as a tack and smart as fresh paint. I don't know how he does it. Studied hard in school I guess.
  8. This is a plumbers tool. It is used to expand the end of lead pipes to join them.
  9. That's a horse trough with an iron pump to fill it. Horses had to be kept watered.
  10. Gauges for cutting pie slices perfectly.
  12. The black clock is marked on the dial with the sellers name and not the makers name. The maker would mark the movement back plate. But not always.
  13. Thank you for the history. I never knew who to ask !
  14. Medical sterilizer for military field use. Used alcohol.
  15. The iron piece is missing the leather strap. It is a corn husker used to peel corn ears. The brass item is a button hole cutter guide. Patent number 147,209 for feb. 3, 1874
  16. Columbus gum machine with rare slug rejector on coin slot.
  17. In the US it was known as a TL29. Made by Camilus among others. Used by Navy and trades like linemen. Screwdriver is locking open ?
  18. Your dad had a very good eye for antiques. That is probably around 1900. No seatbelt or airbags.
  19. Bicycle or hunting horn.
  20. It may be just an Austrian hunting trophy. But.........I think that is full of bad Karma. You can see it in the eyes ! Have you identified the animal horn ? Get rid of it during a full moon......alone.
  21. It's a bit hard to tell with the pix too close. Need a full image of the case. I suspect it has been cut up somewhat.
  22. That is a spool cabinet, supplied to stores by the thread company.
  23. USA Canada and Mexico ! Early NAFTA ?
  24. Great piece. First I've seen like it. It seems as if yo-yos have always been with us.
  25. Research Morris chair and you will see what the back looked like. You could make one. And they are not ducks on the arms. They are Old World Dolphins.
  26. Fabulous condition ! I cannot read the underside lettering. It isn't Sun Rubber of Akron ? I like it a lot.
  27. These work well for snuffing candles too.
  28. This looks like a pickle bottle, but I cannot find the proof. Not a liquor bottle.
  29. And it really really works !
  30. The allen setscrews date to after 1910 patent. I'm still chewing on this.
  31. I do not know this one, Rustfarm. It is recording the bore of something. But not much of a dial indicator for accuracy. Is the hardware SAE or Metric ? That may narrow the field somewhat. A bail on on...
  32. Saw tooth setter.
  33. My info came from Standard Catalog of American Cars. Doubt you will find it anywhere else. Good luck..........
  34. It just may be Mercury Steam Car Corporation of San Francisco in 1923. The company did not last very long.
  35. Larry, I don't know how you find these places ! I could use that in my backyard for yard art. I'd like to be in your pocket for one of your adventures.
  36. I think what you have is a turpentine knife. Used to score the pine trunks for the sap. If right, do I win the quarter ? Best wishes..........
  37. This may be a shotgun shell crimper used when reloading the paper shells. Offer some dimensions.
  38. These are American logs not Lincoln logs.
  39. That is correct. The date is March 31, 1885
  40. You are a born peddler, my friend. Keep up the fine work !
  41. You will have to post good photos of the clock movement. At least the backside. Front too would be better.
  42. I think the case is made of American black walnut with walnut burl panels on the drawers. American esthetic period. The hinged right corner should lock the drawers, or some of them.
  43. Wood plane iron sharpener.
  44. This item is a holy relic ! I suggest you view A great site for research and prop related chat. I think your prop is from a Curtiss pusher airplane as it is turning the wrong way ...
  45. We now know you mean BUSINESS !
  46. Go back to your other post about this sign. I posted the answer there. You never came back to look !
  47. A ceiling lamp retractor. Seldom seen variety.
  48. Well done Dan ! Thank you for the ID. You are a Pro !
  49. Perhaps more pictures AND some dimensions would make it easier to help you. Is this in the USA ? Europe ?
  50. A United States silver dollar. Quite badly worn.
