  6. You're welcome & thank you ........ :-)
  7. Moving the shifter will slide the one set of gears out of alignment & engage the second set.
  8. Love the colour!!
  9. I think you live in an alternate universe, where all the thrift stores are filled with treasures :-)
  10. Thanks for the love inky! It is a fascinating picture, I've looked at it many times to see what I could identify. I would also like the stools, hanging light fixtures, cash register, even the sign t...

  12. Very interesting post Rob! I agree with you on enhancing each others collections and knowledge & thank you for doing so. They worked amazingly well, as my photo shows!
  13. It's okay, it's gone.....might not be so lucky next time. On the bright side I don't have to mow the lawn anymore!
  14. It all too much, after waking up to snow yesterday morning:-(
  15. This is like Walmart, Christmas stuff out before Halloween is over!! :-)

  19. The patent that you cited in the article, pic #4 https://www.google.com/patents/US1741692?dq=us+1741692&hl=en&sa=X&ei=s05RVOecJbWSsQTYpoDQCQ&ved=0CB8Q6AEwAA
  20. The seat bottom doesn't look very old, but it mat not be original either.
  21. Ohhh... Rob, I was hoping that you would see this. I thought that's what they were referring to, but was hoping that you could fill in some details. The "flashlight" fits my timeline. Toronto & nei...
  22. Much better. Now can you add a pic of the bottom side. The way that it is put together screws, no screws, staples, tacks, all help. You will have to remove one photo or do another post. The top end...
  23. Can you post bigger pictures?
  24. Thanks for loving this so quick Virginia & for your kind words.
  25. Very unique, a heavy masculine look to it.
  26. Well done Az! A link for you http://www.triang.nl/index.html http://www.triang.nl/thistlecanada.htm
  27. "One of the cogs is cracked"...........do you mean the gear has a crack or a tooth on the gear is cracked? Can you provide a better pic.
  28. I would say it looks like a two speed rear gearbox, not a differential. Is there a shifter on the drive train?

  31. A real beauty, love it!

  35. Maybe the Americans didn't want to get to friendly with the Brits with war looming in Europe on the horizon!
  36. Yup, filled the entire train!
  37. grating dish or "molcajete", the deep incised lines would aid the grinding of food. Possibly.......
  38. B'buss, they were just testing the waters.
  39. Thanks for the love Jewels, PatSea & agh.
  40. Thanks for the love & support Sis!
  41. As the father of a Canadian soldier I hope not.

  43. I was inspired to post this after seeing Antiquehunter's commemorative stamps from the Royal Tour. You can see them here; http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/138507-canadian-stamp http://www.co...
  44. I have a photo from the visit to Canada and the U.S. by George VI and Queen Elizabeth. I should post it.
  45. Nice to see this stamp. It's a shame that such a cowardice act took place there on Wednesday.
  46. Is it bigger than a breadbox? :-)
  47. I think the machinery & engineering are more impressive than the fountain!
  48. I would love them even more if they had the Vargas Girl like renditions on them :-)
  49. Impressive!!
  50. I meant to say "engine".
