  1. Thanks. I'm glad you liked it.
  2. The second one is a lid lifter for wood burning stoves/ovens. The first one wouldn't make sense as a dent puller since it would appear to rotate. I'd say valve lapper.
  3. It is a lamp. That's all I can say. I'd take it to a college to have it identified.
  4. I'm sure there are sewing machine forums out there. Any one would be bound to have an expert among them.
  5. I'd try them on a more modern piece of equipment. Later 78s aren't as durable as the earlier ones. Let us know how they sound.
  6. I remember the first time I saw one of those. I couldn't believe it could be played. I hope someone didn't try to play them on the Edison.
  7. I have a copy of You Tell Her I Stutter. It's a fun one.
  8. The sound boxes usually have information written on them as well.
  9. I don't think it's an Edison or Victor. Is there any writing on the underside of the lid? Is there a name plate around the turntable? The motor itself could also have identifying information. It looks...
  10. Brunswick was also one of the companies contracted to build Edison Disc Phonograph cabinets.
  11. No. They are spoons. They're still in use in Asia.
  12. Roll-top ashtray. 1950s most likely.
  13. The two records on the left side in the top-left picture might be of interest. Some foxtrot sound pretty good. They look to be from the 1910s, I can't make out the record number. You may find a collec...
  14. Could it be made of clay?
  15. The Pepsi and Dr Pepper bottles are from the 40s and will have the year stamped on the bottom.
  16. Yes it is from World War II. The for victory stamp on each side of the title was printed on everything from posters to record sleeves.
  17. How big is it?
  18. Happy birthday.
  19. Nicely done.
  20. Not bad. I'd love to see it restored.
  21. Agreed. It's a sediment bowl. It maybe from a tractor.
  22. Very cool. Brunswick was also one of the companies Edison used to make his Edison Disc phonograph cabinets.
  23. That is one pretty penny. My oldest modern coin is a Dutch East India Company Half Duit from 1734.
  24. Isn't learning fun.
  25. I believe what you have is a log roller. If you Google antique log roller similar ones will come up.
  26. I can make out a 4, so it's 1940 something. Maybe 48 or 49.
  27. True Mac.
  28. Looks like Hebrew characters. Could it be Hanukkah related?
  29. Mercury dime minted 1916 to 1945. Yours was minted in Philadelphia. It is common they made 67,740,000 of them in 1939.
  30. English 3 Pence.
  31. Very nice.
  32. It's a multi tool for wood work. If you image search antique multi-tool similar ones will show up.
  33. That is a collar die clash. This happens when the die strikes collar die collar die leaving an imprint.
  34. Nice collection. I like that Franklin stamp.
  35. Glass blowing jacks or tweezers?
  36. The first one is a reamer. If he was a Cooper the hammer could have been used to fit rings on barrels, and the reamer for the bunghole.
  37. I would think so. I know the 78s go for quite a bit, especially Elvis.
  38. Thanks. Brunswick. It's one of only two Sun 45s I own. The other is Johnny Cash's Hey Porter.
  39. Very cool.
  40. Thanks bobzerkcollector.
  41. Found you. Nice post.
  42. Ham bone.
  43. I am glad to hear that. The only lube the gears need is a dab of all purpose grease, or even just petroleum jelly. Email me some pics. I'll asist you if you need it. Stay away from 3 in 1, it gums up....
  44. Nicely done.
  45. I think I found it. Philco Model 37-116X Hi-Fi Console Radio with Standard Tuning
  46. I don't think so.
  47. Hard to tell at that angle. I'd say the car is from the 1910s. Do you have a shot of the front end?
  48. The first one is a spoke shaver. Second one maybe a wire strecher. The other two are beyond me.
  49. Complicated little machine isn't it.
  50. It would have had a sponge disk on its end originally, if my assumption is corect.
  51. See more
