  1. This web site doesn't rotate pictures. You didn't orient it on a computer before you uploaded it.
  2. Thanks all. I can find them all over the place but there doesn't seem to be a valid history behind them. Odd but not unheard of. I guess that is what keeps our interest....the research and learning.
  3. It is an Army trenching tool. It folds up and has a holster that goes on your web belt. Pain in the butt digging a fox hole. Great weapon to cut a throat in close combat if you swing it right.
  4. I have a complete set of the dies used to stamp the numbers in. The dies were made after WWII.
  5. Thanks for posting the link. I was in hopes it would show history of the item as opposed to a for sale item. I would be interested more in the maker and history behind it.
  6. roddyq I always like learning, can you please provide a link to your source of information? I would be interested in seeing it and learning.
  7. I tend to agree it may be a doorstop. Hubley made Popeye cast iron doorstops in 1929. I don't remember how many sizes they made but it is well worth researching. Their originals with original paint go...
  8. As for the repair, I would use animal hide resin glue, then clamp it tight and go to the under side and put a couple mending plates screwed in place to hold it from coming apart again. The glue will t...
  9. I think you intended to say, Chinese. Chines is a nautical or aerodynamic term. Might be better to post her as Asian in that you are unsure or her origin.
  10. I located this about Shaw Co. very little found. This is from the history of Worcester. H. E. Shaw Co., Henry E. Shaw, pres. ; cigars and tobacco, 1444 Front St. Suc- ceeded Worcester Cigar Co., e...
  11. Thank you very much but I prefer my "sounds" from a CD.
  12. Interesting that a friend in England told me about this and kyratango found one for sale in the UK. AnythingObscure minim is a measure of fluid which equals approximately one drop. In that the term...
  13. I recall these being popular around 1956 or 58. They were sold at the five and ten cent store.
  14. These can be very elusive and I doubt it was made special order. I have a set from his Romance (Flame) design which is quite rare. My set was only produced for four years then discontinued. Mine are a...
  15. This from the Internet: The story of Falstaff has roots as old as the history of brewing in St. Louis. Originally introduced by the Lemp Brewery, Falstaff Beer was just one of several different bra...
  16. That is a Falstaff beer bar light. Picture is dark but I think the person on the sign was called the Falstaff Brewer Guy. Look it up as a Falstaff bar light and you will find a wide assortment of them...
  17. It may not be one of their stoves, however they were the biggest cast iron stove manufacturer in the world and shipped stoves all over the world. They were known to use the word "giant" in their model...
  18. Phil - With all due respect I can't resist saying this. When you look in the mirror you see your own image, are you blaming the poor satyr?
  19. Not sure I would call that an ashtray. Left end has a pouring spout which isn't common to an ashtray. The opposite end where I assume you think a cigarette would rest could be a thumb support for pour...
  20. Looks like a jester head to me. Possibly from a doll or marionette. Maybe Maniken can help when she sees it. She is the best with dolls etc.
  21. Good luck with that. The pictures don't even show it they are so dark. If you want help post photo's that can bee seen.
  22. Nice sign. I have been giving mine away. Have a Johnny Walker I need to clean and check the transformer and connections. My favorite was a 4 foot Bud light for over a pool table. It still works and ha...
  23. I will toss in my 2 cents here. There was a company in Ohio that had a large foundry where they made all types of cast iron stoves. ACME brand stoves like the little giant which the advertised as, "It...
  24. This may have been sold with Preparation - H for temporary relief of hemorrhoid itch.
  25. I have one like this but mine is green and on the top it tells how to make an omelet. We usually used it when camping.
  26. Manikin - What part of Texas is WI in? I can't find it on the map?? Must be a small place.
  27. blunder you are 100% right. Training isn't a requirement. I firmly believe everyone should be required to go through shoot - don't shoot training just like we did at the police academy. I have been a ...
  28. I keep a 38 by the bed loaded with hydra shock hollow points. When I go out I just carry a taser. Although at my age I am tending to lean toward a sawed off shot gun for home. Leaves a mess but doesn'...
  29. I believe both suggestions are correct. On the valve lapper there was also a tool made called an egg beater crank screwdriver that was somewhat of a multi use tool. The wire twisters were/are also use...
  30. I can't see the pictures up close but it looks like some rust and chips where black shows. That tends to make me think they are porcelain enamel as opposed to all porcelain. Industrial porcelain ename...
  31. This would be used for a guest who only wants half a cup of tea. (Sorry but I couldn't resist)
  32. Additionally; Hold down on your ctrl key and tap the + key. That will enlarge the text with each tap so you can view it. If I can learn it anyone can.
  33. It is good you don't care how you are accepted because you read my reply without a problem and it isn't caps. I don't judge disabled people because I happen to be a disabled Vietnam Veteran myself.
  34. You will be better accepted if you turn off the cap lock. Don't think about dovetails show them. Are they machine cut or hand cut? Makes a big difference when trying to date it. Does it have dust pane...
  35. You are right about them not being terribly expensive.....UNLESS...unless you have the one that a collector needs to complete his collection. Then the tables turn in favor of the seller that has it.
  36. Many decades ago when I lived up North we called these, The man killer. It takes heck of a good rhythm with the guy on the other end or it doesn't work out well.
  37. The holes in the arms you speak of don't show in the photo. I assume they are on top at the end. The chair isn't terribly old so I assume there were wood button plugs in the holes.
  38. I had a pair of these 60 years ago when I lived in Vermont. I see no metal bindings so would say these are 1930's or earlier. I believe they began using metal bindings in 1940. While this isn't a site...
  39. I had the same car in High School but it was silver color. Had a three on the tree which was fine but the transmission was cast aluminum and it got cracked and leaked. Back then it cost more to find s...
  40. Quite possible this was originally a demijohn. It might pay to research it as that.
  41. The US Army will not tear down an engine for a seep and a leak has to be so many drops per minute before they do a rebuild.
  42. Blunderbuss - I never heard of it either but I do know they measure whether you have a seep or a leak by timing it. Believe it or not there is a difference especially with an expensive repair. I never...
  43. Looks like CM to me. Back in the old days you didn't run down to Home Depot and buy a tool box. You made your own and put either your name or initials on it. If you opened it and those weren't your in...
  44. Yes the wording of your search string can make a huge difference in the results you get. It is easy to get tunnel vision doing searches. That is where sites like this are handy. Everyone has their own...
  45. I found this ashtray on two or three sites for sale. All of them say it was a commemorative ashtray made specifically for this unit
  46. I thought this post had gone away but glad to see it back. During an online chat with a collector in England I mentioned this odd cup and said I thought it was some kind of a joke cup. In return he la...
  47. Coin page lists it as 5 rappen Swiss coin. http://coinquest.com/cgi-bin/cq/coins?main_coin=2757
  48. I believe that would be from Switzerland.
  49. Similar one here: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Antique-Tire-changing-bead-breaker-tool-Early-Motorcycle-Harley-Davidson/182862294850?hash=item2a93712f42:g:-6UAAOSwvD5Z9SSI
  50. Not an antique and it is a ladder hook. It clamps to the top two rungs then you push the ladder up the cheek of the roof until the hook drops over the peak. Then you can walk up the ladder.
