  1. Fantastic job on your restoration of this beauty! Time travel in style!
  2. Congrats on the 300th post, at my present pace I'll be there in another three years!
  3. Very nice display of your pink collection, looks great with the vintage doilies & marble top cabinet!
  4. Dave really came through with everything you asked for! Nice watch!
  5. Once you've filled the hole & the glue is set trim off any excess wood & glue, then position the casing & use an awl to start a new hole in the center. If its of center it will pull the casing to one ...
  6. I wish you could too, it all looks yummy! I need to go raid the fridge!
  7. It all looks good Aim
  8. Great collection & cabinet!
  9. You're most welcome.
  10. Thanks for loving these old pictures Lee, Sarah, agh & Radegunder
  11. They are fantastic, I love everything about them, the design, the rusty iron, coloured glass. What is the light source for them, I don't see a cord on the first three?
  12. Possibly for taking a liquid sample, put the lid on for transport & place in stand for testing??
  13. This card is part of a series available in the U S. I found similar ones with flags of Germany, Sweden, Australia, France, Italian Army & Texas, in place of the Italian Flag. A great card for it's a...
  14. Thanks for the love Kevin, Sarah, vansky & toenail. Also thanks for the kind words toenail.
  15. Thanks for giving this some love KolyaSemenov, Sean, Nicole, gluepot & MattyG.
  16. Thanks for the love on these pics Trey. Wood - rubber, it's a trade off so we can go fast :-)
  17. Maybe you should go with the longer screws then :-)
  18. Looks great!
  19. Thanks for the love on these special photo's Toenail, there's something that compels us to provide a narrative for old photo's & your's is a good one.
  20. Thanks for the love & the kinds words Toenail. The air banjo is a special one!
  21. Sorry, I missed this & the Elephant in the room. He's seems to enjoy them!
  22. Hard to ignore isn't it :-)
  23. Amber you weren't suppose to mention elephant in the room :-)
  24. That was a very nice gesture on his part.
  25. Congrats on your 100th post!
  26. Never seen one,cool!
  27. National Tank Company, NATCO, founded in 1926 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. http://www.oilandgasparts.com/catalogue/company/view/comp_id/12
  28. Here is a Pierre Emmanuel Guerin lamp, there are some noticeable differences in yours. http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/objects/2699/Floor_Lamp
  29. A little different base; http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/13380935_brass-eagle-foot-floor-lamp-64-tall http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/998713
  30. Congrats on your 300th posting!
  31. Fantastic camera, I love the features they included not because they had to but because they wanted to! Another great addition to your collection!
  32. It seems as though I have many people to thank for giving these photo's some love, official trunkman miKKo Sean musikchoo Lee Sarah Radegunder Sis agh ttom Loumanal Pops
  33. Thanks for the love & the kind words toenail.
  34. Have you tried a magnet on it?
  35. Better put a fur coat on her at least, she's going to get cold!
  36. Fill the hole with a round wood toothpick & wood glue then re-install the screw once the glue is dried. I would suggest that you only do one hole at a time.
  37. Just below the love like tabs is the edit this item option. It could be a different model or revision from the same company.
  38. No on the snow, but the cold air is coming your way!
  39. I wondered if you bought it when I checked out the link in your other post earlier. Is this going in the NEW hutch? :-)
  40. I thought that it was missing a clip as you can see a rectangular area around the two pins that is a different colour. http://www.miningartifacts.org/toolsandhardware.html 4 Piece Patented Pick Head
  41. That didn't take long, very nice!
  42. Another great addition to your collection Sis, love her!
  43. There's only one option then, you need another hutch! :-)
  44. Is there patent info on it? Is there a piece missing that once held the pins in place?
  45. "I don't know exactly how the top will end up"....... I know, FULL :-)
  46. There are safer ways to test gravity :-) Do you mean the screws on the back?
  47. I'm thinking harness accessory to be attached to the harness saddle (as apposed to a riding saddle). The rings in picture 3 could be rein terrets. All the parts portrayed have a basis in mythology, ...
  48. Very unique, love it!
  49. It has some chips in the enamel, but still a lovely piece. Did you see the old price tag on the back?
  50. Sounds like a good plan!
  51. See more
