  1. If you look at the Lane database you will find that the table should have either a 6 or a 7 digit serial number. It also says.......... if your table does not have Lane table serial number on it, ...
  2. This one is for trimming down block ice. The other one posted right now has a round nose and a knife type handle for cutting or enlarging holes in the ice. These larger ones always seemed to attract a...
  3. Based on the postage stamp size picture I have to agree with scottvez, from what little you can see I would say I would say it is an original made in Taiwan.
  4. That picture doesn't show much but the teeth and size of the blade is pretty much the same as we used years ago to cut a hole through the ice to go ice fishing up north. Now days they use power augers...
  5. Years ago there were a number of people named Quimby that were clock makers in New England. The most noted one was Phineas Parkhurst Quimby. He was noted for his tower clock. You might have luck resea...
  6. I did this type work with them quite long ago. Always nice to see how others modify them and put them to good use. Nice job and thanks for sharing it with us.
  7. BB2 I went through that same thing with my youngest son. When I stopped paying his monthly bills he got off his dead ass and went to work. Today he is a single dad with custody of his son and doing ...
  8. Watchsearcher The size of this isn't at all unusual. The size monkey fist you use depends in the size of the heaving line you intend throwing. Most have a ball of lead or good size stone inside them ...
  9. My kind of gal. Learn how to pop a cap and live safely.
  10. Target practice?
  11. Those aren't designed for chimney use. I believe you will find they were mounted to the end of a ridge pole on a hay barn or similar structure.
  12. PS: The link above is the Tulsa Council
  13. Bobby 725 I found this Facebook link to the Oklahoma Tribal Council, it may help cut down your research time if you are on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/okscouts/
  14. I guess I missed this when originally posted. Super nice collection. I will throw in 2 cents worth for you to consider. Looking at the items in the display immediately brought to mind the troops in...
  15. Yes, it is a monkey fist. You attached another rope and threw the monkey fist to get the attached rope where you wanted it. Now days they are commonly used in tree work.
  16. You can start by looking at the underside for makers marks and showing them. If there aren't any then good luck.
  17. It is a typical dolly used to roll things around. They come in all sizes to hold different weight. This one is light duty.
  18. Looks like a crown insignia on the lid. Possibly Crown Pipe Co. from late 1800's. Any other marks on it anywhere? Normally they would be marked on the bottom of the bowl of the stem or both.
  19. Antique table? Tigerwood? I need some sleep.
  20. shareurpassion, I agree to an extent but not about it being a page flipper. It would more than qualify as a page marker. If you google Victorian Bible Page Marker you should find them.
  21. Treasure Tex you are correct. The navy lock was almost exact to the earlier mail bag security lock.
  22. I would venture to say it is an early 1900's mail bag security lock. They were made in this type design. Rochester made some with a combination rather than a key.
  23. kwqd not everything that came back was in a duffel bag. When my father in law left Luzon at the end of the war his unit brought heavy equipment along on the boats when they boarded for home. There wa...
  24. The bowl looks like aged pewter to me and pewter isn't magnetic. Just my 2 cents worth.
  25. Probably not from Ireland. Research Ancient Order of Hibernians and the Div number and your puzzle will be solved. The A.O.H. stands for Ancient Order of Hibernians and they are certainly in this coun...
  26. I would seriously doubt this being a belt buckle. Look at picture #1, the center rod is worn almost completely through. When did a belt buckle ever do that? This has seen lots of movement to wear it t...
  27. My original post should have read, Paint, Oil and Chemical Review. I never heard of cleaning anything like a bathroom fixture with Turpentine. The stuff is gummy. When doing rehab work on old timb...
  28. Well being older than dirt I will pose an idea worth 2 cents. Back when I was young, poor and living in rural farm country, it was common for women to make Christmas gifts because there was no money t...
  29. I remember these cans from days gone by. All my search produced was that the company was mentioned in the Pain, Oil and Chemical Review publication in 1921.
  30. Golgatha The bad day was caused by a really weak mix, they tried to stretch their concrete by cutting it with to much sand. The popcorn (holes in the surface) are caused by the mix combined with usi...
  31. Try singing, I'm off to see the wizard and it may get easier. If not just click your heels and set it down.
  32. Quite a weapon for multiple applications. Just make dam sure nobody is standing behind you when you fire it. French fried buddies isn't considered as proper protocol. You are right that these were use...
  33. PS: your plate would be after the 1930's because it has the COO back mark.
  34. truthordare I also did the double take when I saw your plate. I found it difficult to believe two plates made a half a world apart would have the same color scheme and imagery. Mine is also hand pai...
  35. I am amazed at how close the colors and pattern are to the plate I have posted. Kind of odd.
  36. I love people who ask an opinion then find fault. Everyone else is wrong. I guess some people are just always right at any cost.
  37. kerakimos I pretty much agree. However, in the six years I spent in Europe I never saw a troll marked Danmark. The biggest difference was in the mark on the feet indicated where it was to be sold. I ...
  38. I suspect you may find out this is what is called a, "spoofed Troll", probably actually made in Hong Kong. There were thousands of fakes produced and most all of them have a slight change to the copyr...
  39. I think if anything it might possibly be Bursch-McCoy or later. That would be almost impossible to substantiate but when the name changed a few pieces were released unmarked. It could also be a Nelson...
  40. I'm not sure where you would have read that but McCoy pottery was always marked since the day they started in 1899. It wasn't marked McCoy at that time but it was certainly marked. The originals were ...
  41. The most obvious question is: Is it marked??
  42. Coke1234 Great reply with excellent information. Easy to learn something here everyday.
  43. This stove looks like someone took it apart and put it back together backwards. The top doesn't fit at all right and makes it dangerous to use. The top was put back on with the stack in the front and ...
  44. Here is a different brand. https://hardwickandsons.com/products/crown-tools-brad-pusher
  45. Looks like a Brookstone brad driver. I can't see inside the barrel to be sure.
  46. Had you read the site rules you would be aware that this is not the place to get value. For value simply click the link at the top of the page where it says Appraisal.
  47. The first dry powder units like this came out in 1928. Carbon tetrachloride was outlawed for this use in the 50's because of the fumes. This one may well have a mix containing sodium bicarbonate or e...
  48. You might want to research "Antique Kennedy Roller Skates". Kennedy made a number of different skates around 1900. I am not sure if there are any online archives but I know the brand is collectable ...
  49. Brunswick been using that site for years. They have very little Iva Lure. I suspect they don't go after it because they prefer to stock high dollar stuff. They will pay you $3 and sell for $85. It is...
  50. Any input, good or bad appreciated.
