  1. What a great family photo, love it! Thanks for sharing!
  2. It looks like it could be better for keeping rain off. Looks like a pointy Sou'wester.
  3. Well done trunkman! It does have impressive hardware on it.
  4. Contact management & ask why they don't support mobile devices. They need to catch up with technology.
  5. Very interesting......I give it two thumbs up as well....b d
  6. I had a look at the website from Kinzers, they have an amazing collection!
  7. Rattletrap do you live down under? :-) Do you own a computer?
  8. It's not wonderful for us viewers. :-( I usually avoid these upside down/sideways images, they give me a soar neck. Management says that you are to post from a computer. I've asked a couple of ti...
  9. Well done kyratango!
  10. That's why Dad had a crescent wrench on every tractor & equipment toolbox :-)
  11. At Austin, MB at the Manitoba Agricultural Museum, in 2010 they set a world record with five of these tractors pulling a 66 bottom plow on a custom built hitch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_OYNV...
  12. These go back to the day of the when square head fasteners were common. Old farm machinery came with their own wrenches to fit the nuts that were used. 23/32 does not match a metric dimension.
  13. Are you posting from a mobile device?
  14. Fantastic!
  15. Very interesting!
  16. Nice to see such a large collection. The Rumely Oil Pull, is a kerosene burning internal combustion engine not steam.
  17. I'm waiting for the final design approval......thanks again Kerry! :-)
  18. Thanks for the loves, Lee trunkman officialfuel fortapache racer4four tom61375 B'buss Hunter Lisa
  19. I've never seen such a fancy marriage certificate. Link to the official application & duplicate certificate; https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-267-12874-85351-28
  20. I love old photos !!!! They must have been on a long road trip...30 miles... stopped to cook a meal!
  21. I agree with fhrjr. How thick is it? Material?
  22. A larger photo would help in the identification.
  23. Either way it works, keep it up. Brass?
  24. Post them from a computer not a phone!
  25. Looks great!
  26. Thanks for the loves, Tom aghcollect AmberRose mikelv85
  27. No problem, all is well.

  29. Thanks for the love & the compliments Phil, they are appreciated. The pointing finger is so iconic for that era.
  30. Thanks for the love on this one Sis, I was so amazed when I got it to find it came from so close to home. It is fun too!
  31. Another great addition to your collection Phil, love it! I met a guy a few years ago that built the first chair lift in the Qu'appelle Valley or even Saskatchewan possibly.
  32. Some of the items made by the E W Gillett Company included; Magic Baking Powder (now sold under the Kraft name) Gillett's Lye Royal Yeast Cakes Gillett's Cream of Tartar
  33. Thanks for the loves, geo26e Kerry Kevin Virginia.vintage...nice to see a new face on one of my posts ozmarty
  34. There are only a few pieces missing, capitol L & O, the Q is missing it's tail. I believe it's missing a few of of the design pieces, like the right hand. Plus a few are very worn, like the two crit...
  35. Thanks for the love & the comments Sean. I was surprised at how well they still work.
  36. There are a few that lack the skills, in it for a pay check or pension, I think. A smile, hug or a hand held go a long way to comforting someone.
  37. I like what you added Sis, I'm sure you were one of the best!
  38. So you can get your knees up to help support the baby???? Wouldn't that be more comfortable for someone of your stature, than having you feet dangling in mid air! If you're going to drop babies Sis,...
  39. Hopefully if they are labelled, then they are correct. Are you going to post more?
  40. Well thank you very much antiquerose!
  41. Short legs indicates it's a nursing chair, I believe.
  42. You're very welcome, glad to help out.
  43. Mission San Luis Rey de Francia is a former Spanish mission in the present-day city of Oceanside, California http://www.missionscalifornia.com/keyfacts/san-luis-rey-de-francia.html http://en.wikip...
  44. The UK doesn't appears to have old patents available online. Has me stumped!
  45. I'm glad she's not the only one of her species!
  46. You're most welcome, glad to help.
  47. Looks more like a Mission style Church from California.
  48. As for age 1900-1930's. Perhaps fhrjr2 can narrow it down Here's some reading for you. http://www.worthpoint.com/article/press-back-art-chair-decoration
  49. Sorry no, some new eyes may help solve it! Your duck seems more up town than rustic :-)
  50. These chairs would have been mass produced & possibly sold through a mail order company, so finding more info could be impossible!
