Back when my wife was alive we would go out from Friday thru Sunday and buy every wooden cigar box we could find. Even the plain wooden boxes. We turned some really great money on eBay selling them. T...
Spaghetti tongs...(for a midget).
I would say coil spring compressing clamps. Hook top and bottom on the spring and turn the center rod to tighten and compress the spring. Just my guess. This link shows newer ones. http://www.su...
lzenglish - great job. I learned something today although I suspect I will forget how to spell it correctly.
I think what Newfld is saying is it is an old shave hook. I tend to agree and the shape would suggest it might have been used on crown molding. I have modern versions in several different shapes and s...
I have a baby Deere out back I bought to do the lawn with after my stroke. Last year after hurricane Irma my baby Deere and trailer hauled lots of debris away for neighbors. They are a work horse as l...
Windwalker - I haven't seen a black fly in 20 years and have no desire for a reunion. I used to buy horse wipe and dilute it in a spray bottle to keep them away.
Windwalker - Your Google search puts an "A" at the end of the patent number. That would indicate a revision to the original. That could make this one without the "A" more valuable. I didn't search Goo...
PS: When the link opens click images at the top center
First patented July 12, 1870 to G. Maulik as a saw (patent image shows the same blade). Full text is not available for this patent number. Sorry the information is limited but it is all they have for ...
If you read the rules then you are aware asking values is a no, no. If you had this one and five more that are mint? Don't give up your day job.
Looks like a fairly new inexpensive hermaphrodite caliper. The wide tip on one end would indicate it was for a special use as opposed to a standard caliper. These come in all different designs dependi...
I would say photo #2 is either old dampers or flu covers.
The chair is old, however I am willing to bet I am older. It is certainly vintage with some repairs.
Antiquerose - My JD is a lawn tractor but I still have logging chains and a trailer for it. After hurricane Irma last year the little JD helped lots of neighbors. Los of people laugh about me having ...
All I have ever heard a unit like this called is a, side by side secretary desk. The majority of them have the shelves facing forward. Library desks had the shelves in this fashion but few had a drop ...
It looks like a hand bearing press. Quite possibly used on mountain bikes or similar items with smaller bearings.
I seem to find quite a few of these green chairs in chair auction sites so I have to assume they are quite common.
This should be helpful to you. They also help with values. Found it on the web. Good Luck. Flip your chair and look under the seat. It will have either a paper tag or crayon or chalk markings that ...
Difficult to tell anything from one blurry picture but I think PhilDMorris is on target. The casters and hardware alone would make me think pre war. Maybe ScottVez will weigh in on this a bit more.
As you collect keys keep in mind not all keys open something. Some wind , some leave an imprint etc. When you see a key it is natural to think of a lock but not all keys open locks. Just something I l...
PS: In the link it is the bottom one #8, click that to open the registration page. All others are different companies with same letters but different designs and products.
I found your trademark which is now what is called a dead mark. First registered in 1966 to this company. I will provide a link below to make it easier for you to review info. http://tmsearch.uspto...
Fortunato - I asked my questions for a reason. As I stated above I would question this having an American origin. I haven't ridden a train in decades but when I did, it was mostly in Europe. While I ...
What you have here is an original Hubley Fido paper weight. It was made as an advertising item for Hines. There are still many of them around but none the less this appears to be an original Hubley.
SpiritBear - You make an excellent point assuming this came from an American rail line. I question the origin. These were used on both rail lines and steam ship lines. Some of the earliest had charact...
I had the same kit in the 60's and it came with the metal cup. They took orders for them at meetings or you could order them through boys life magazine.
Unable to see the bottoms of the legs. Can you tell us how many bolt down holes there are please? Other than a makers mark is there a mold or foundry number? The number would be on the back or under s...
PhilDMorris is mostly right. The grocery store keys weren't actually brass or bronze, they were plated.
Newfld the chief badge normally doesn't have a number because the chief is the top cop. Patrolmen and other officers have numbered badges.
tigerlily7805, I wasn't putting your post down. I just can't resist making someone smile and get a laugh.
You left out the most important part. If the badge is actually that old it should have a makers mark on the back side. Those marks changed over the years so it helps date the badge. Show the maker mar...
As long as you asked, I will give you my words of wisdom gathered over 7 decades. I wouldn't share this with just anyone, but you asked. It goes to a lock. Sorry but I couldn't resist. Hehehehe!
These are souvenir glasses. They are sold wherever tourists go and especially at Oktoberfest. I bought some of them in the late 60's and early 70's when I was stationed there. They were fun items to ...
T-bar nut cracker.
They just announced today that debris pickup from Irma will end this week. I lost two great oak trees. One was over 150 years old. Still don't have the back of the house totally fixed but darn near. G...
Good enough Rose. this would have been on the right hand side of the hood on a 4020. Now days they use decals to save money. This old trim work is quite collectable in the right forum.
Rose I know they made equipment in the USA, Canada and Germany. Also they used black and what their standard calls "sabre silver" paint. As I recall the black, silver and a charcoal color were for ind...
These came in different shapes depending on the shape of the hood ( engine cover). This one was probably on a 4020 or 3020 series because of the length. The ends of this match with that series hood.
I have a triangle ashtray from Gildemann cigarettes. I got it in Germany in 1967 back when I first started collecting them. Most of my collection is gone now.
Looks to be a manual lift deck with the deck lift lever on the right side. Far as I know John Deere always mounted theirs on the left with the manual lift. The one fender you have might match to a 196...
Try researching, portable Replogle drafting table.
Try this....10 Sols aux couronnes de Metz Draped bust right Use the above for your search but be prepared for sites written in french. Your coin looks like a reproduction based on the shape of t...
Certainly a buck saw and would have been an expensive one. Most didn't have the turnbuckle at the top to tension them properly. Totally different design than a bow saw but city people use both names. ...
Worthpoint article. Also shows the flip latch I spoke of. https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-keen-kutter-pruning-shears-75438721
I can help a bit. I have a pair of these my dad gave me back in the early 1960's. Dad owned a perennial and tree nursery. The pair he gave me was made in late 40's or early 50's. There should have bee...
Reading the rules before posting usually answers this type question.
Call me wrong if you will but every holiday season my mother in law ground nutmeg for the eggnog with one of these. They do in fact work for nutmeg.
That is a nutmeg grinder. Can also be used for walnuts etc.
More commonly known as a rotary wheel perforator.
