    A friend of mine has these two items we are trying to find any info on them can someone help us out. We think the one looks like a drill press is one but we can’t find any info like when it was made what drill was use in it. Only thing worte on it is ( Poper Iron & Wire Works Inc ) on the handle. The other item we know it is a scroll saw but there isn’t any thing on it at all needing info on it. Last is a metal can opener and sealer but who by and when was it made.

    Unsolved Mystery

    Help us close this case. Add your knowledge below.

      I believe you will find pictures #1 & #2 are a of a bench top spring assisted grommet press used for setting grommets in leather work. The bit that is in it is for pressing the grommet there should be another bit for punching out a hole to fit the grommet.
