Torque has not created any collections yet.
What are collections?
I totally understand this. I keep these parts as well. Not for a collection, but for use on other projects. An abundant source of a little extra bling.
This is an Allen-head driver. Have you tried to unscrew the knurled portion near the top? Some of these have changeable bits. Others are fixed and come in sets of different sizes.
Well the mirrored panel under the bottom glass just got replaced last weekend. Found one on eBay. One thing at a time.
Great old work bench. I am not an expert, but this does not look manufactured to me. As you pointed out, the legs are cast. They look like the only parts that were manufactured other than the drawer ...
Fun piece. I wonder how many others have survived. Considering that after they used the flux, it would have been trash. I agree that the joinery is interesting. It definitely adds to the appeal.
Are those decals of some kind or are they painted? Ether way, a nice piece.
Thanks for the info. Great site. I had no idea that it had existed before the war. Although with the shortage of metal at the time, most were probably recycled. I guess that why I have never seen one ...
His work was tied pretty closely to the biker life style. Outside of that I don't know that he had much of a following. That probably has something to do with it.
Normally there are stickers in the lower left side of the play field under the glass. You can see them on mine. Those are issued from the Japanese government. Basically a license for use, from what I ...
Nice print. Love David Mann's paintings. I use to have a rug/tapestry, with his Ghost Rider painting printed on it, hanging in my kitchen.(Obviously before I was married) Cheap piece of merchandise. Y...
Great machine dav2n01. Looks earlier than mine. Very nice.
Mine is a 1974. Yours look earlier than that. Do you know the year?
Thank you Newfld. I love these because they are so mechanical. Sort of a real Rube Goldberg device.
Would love to have a shot at firing the real one. Would probably take a week to wipe the grin off my face.
Love the truck. I'd leave the paint job. Who better to paint a toy than a kid? They must have cared about it.
You are right, it does have a cool look. I like your attitude. I've spent many hours and dollars fixing up things that most people have no use for. The value is always interesting, but far from the ma...
I had one of these as well. We misused it just like you. No coffee can, but we found that one particular type of my Moms cosmetics came in a round bottle that fit in the barrel close to perfectly. Hou...
Thank you very much for the info and the examples. You are right. That's my clock. That is the first time I have ever seen another one exactly like mine. I love that with one look at the picture I can...
Don't know if you still visit this site, but I love this machine. I have one very similar. Mine however does not have a ball auger. I have seen commercially made augers on line. They are advertised fo...
PhilDMorris you are correct. I don't think many people, if anyone, saw what the internet would do to the antiques markets. That is one reason that I don't get into the business side of antiques. I buy...
If I ever get busy and finish this project, pictures will definitely be posted.
Thanks to everyone that loved it. Celiene is right about the glass. The molded piece on the bottom will have to come from a donor box. The glass on top is, unfortunately not just a flat piece of glass...
One of, if not the coolest jukebox ever. Love it.
Thank you keramikos for the comment and the suggestion. Had not really thought about cleaning it first, so glad you said something. The final product will be better because of your input.
Update: I decided to put the drawer back to original. Added a removeable piece that brings my keyboard level with the top of the drawer. Also added a bottom to the original typewriter area. That allow...
I know what you have. I have one just like it. They are made in Turkey. I bought mine over there back in the 80s. Not sure if they still make them or if they were ever imported in large numbers. It’s ...
