  1. Thank you Keramikos. :-)
  2. I can't quite tell it's size or if there is a flat spot on the bottom for it to sit on but guessing... It looks like the advertising desk thermometer made by HoneyWell in the 50's. Obviously a differ...
  3. From what I understand these are/or where made by Bosch. There are or where different size (width) channels they could be used with. They're function is similar to the more modern T-Slot clamps of t...
  4. @ blunderbuss2 - the legs fold up and inside. I was just shown a pic of another piece in the house, apparently there's also a matching round leaf dinning table. I presume by the same craftsman. It's ...
  5. @ fhrjr2 - I don't think she has the memory problem, more the person giving me the information. Having spoke to the daughter in-law to verify, it turns out Sweden was actually "Spain". And 40's/50's w...
  6. MrFreedman, rather simple to contact them. Just emailed them and spoke with them on the phone. Sorry, I don't know anything more about the display. I don't live there nor ever visited so I've never s...
  7. Yeah, I was wondering what I could actually use this plane for as far as wood is concerned. Mini planes / Finger planes such as the IBEX's which use a standard plane blade and Razor planes are two ...
  8. @ fhrjr2 - Drill press angle vises with two flat faces are common. I don't know if you noticed but this one has moveable jaws on the dynamic jaw. As mentioned in the post, I've only found one wit...
  9. Thank you RacAtac. I'll have wait till I get on a computer since on my cell it's only showing a tiny snippet, I can't see the page in full. At least we know they were around in 1945 from what I co...
  10. Hey Bruce, Aah...Now I understand.. Thank you very much for the time and the explanation. :-) Cheers...
  11. Hey Bruce, Okay.. I think I'm understanding... Almost anyway. Lol It's my lack of knowledge of the workings of clock repair that's interfering. I have knowledge of broaching a keyway. Which the...
  12. Hey rniederman, Thanks for the additional information. You have me curious if I can still get those temperature strips to calibrate the dial. I use to custom make exotic wood picture frames, did ...
  13. Thank you Bruce, Yup, they're smoothing or cutting broaches. I still don't quite understand what they're used on given the 5 sides. You can't cut or smooth a square hole with them. Perhaps they'r...
  14. Thanks for the info RacAtac, that's good to know. Cheers...
  15. @ Toyrebel - Thank you! Yeah, you can definitely "feel" and see the quality when moving the jaw on this vise. It's smooth as silk. @ fhrjr2 - I don't know the exact metal composition of the jaws. T...
  16. Thank you for saying so Bruce. :-) Cheers...
  17. Thank you for the information on these figurines Parrotbeak. Thank you for the compliment Newfld. Cheers...
  18. Real nice work! You mentioned in your other fan post you're top coating with a clear urethane. Question out of curiosity: Are you using single or 2 part paints in your restorations? Or a combinatio...
