What are collections?
Tools and Hardware
Fixed Blade Knives
Military and Wartime
Very Very Light Weight Construction, coupled with Dull Blade tells me, either an Envelope Opener, or Part of a Decorative Wall Hanger Piece. Welcome, and Good Luck.
I agree with GREAT SOLVE. The makers name i found was "Hirsch Werkzeuge" Company, Germany. Thanks for the Solve.!
Possible part of old door hinge?
Sorry, forgot to say "Sorry for Your Loss"..
Hello: I don't know exactly what you have, but if i had to describe it to a blind person, i would say it is a hammerless, folding trigger revolver. Measure the barrel opening, and you will have the ca...
Schrade Knife Company, USA, Since 1904. It went to china some years ago like most good quality USA Companies have done. Google "Schrade Knife Company History". frisco...
I agree with all the above, in that its probably a disston. I have a love hate feeling about the beautiful, ornate handle tho. I love it because it looks like your hand and thumb will fit it like a gl...
This is an old tractor, and or farm implement wrench. You will find it in the news as TallCakes Mentioned above.
PS: All Three I Mentioned can be Interchangeable Tools.
Hello: The first thing i would do, is give them a vinegar and salt bath for 2 days, then wire brush and oil. Then Look for makers mark. Here is what i always ask myself when i find one like this: Are ...
Great find ! Here is the patent for it, incase you don't already have it....... http://pdfpiw.uspto.gov/.piw?PageNum=0&idkey=NONE&SectionNum=3&HomeUrl=&docid=1387187
What can i say to do it justice, besides, Bitchen, Beautiful, and A Work of Art! You did a fantastic job of keeping this old classic alive ! I started riding in San Diego, in 67, and you had to have ...
You have a German made, pliers type, hand saw set. I have Not seen many of these turn up in the USA, be it tool auctions or otherwise. Below are a couple links for you to look at. The last link shows ...
Your knife was NOT hand made from scraps, and is worth allot more than 15 bucks! I can't tell you just how much, as "MOST ALL of US" are NOT allowed to do so at CW, but i can offer you the link below...
If you already know the 1938 date, which you do, then do you probably already know, that C.S. Osborne Co., purchased WM Johnson Co. in this year? Now the question is, did WM Johnson, who continued to ...
The model number you posted appears to be a Sears Model Number. Go to the Sears online Parts Store and enter it. Then you will need to search out who made bikes for Sears around this time. I think it ...
"Nice Beaver" !!!! I think i would have left the resistors in their natural state tho! I did allot of work with honeywell components, around this same time frame, in large Commercial Buildings.
That's all i have in (guesses), so good luck to you!
The piece with the rope and two balls is called a "Bolas", and is a weapon of spanish, and/or mexican descent. I also think it shows a small oven, possibly for tortillas. So, the scene is Mexican or S...
Questions: What are the dimensions of it? Do you see any ink or lead pencil residue in the bottom of the two open drums? I'm thinking Dizzydave is onto something, such as a "Desktop, Western Scene, Pe...
Hello, Beautiful knife! What is the Mystery you wish to have Solved? http://strazors.com/uploads/gallery/Boker_History.pdf
No Question about it, Nice Work Onedtent! And to you markmo56 for showing the proof. Of course it is missing the wood shoe die, or whatever it is called.
If you look close, you will see that the arrow shaped tip, is free wheeling, so no auger action would take place.
I see you have this posted on other web sites, and still no answer? If that is still the case, i would contact erik, at the disstonian institute, with the photos you posted and see what he says. Just ...
Yea, old timers strikes again, the last line is different as well. Lets just say it is a play on an old irish toast, (imo), and leave it at that!!! Lol
I think dizzydave is onto something, as i found this drinking rhyme to be an old Irish "Toast." The only difference is your copy has two words added, ie. the G-Damn. I found nothing on the Boel name ...
My first guess, is a puller, that is missing the 2 arms that slide onto the middle piece. Could be a bearing puller, wheel puller, etc.
PS, Sorry for all the word and spelling mistakes, but old age is a bitch.
What a Great Find !!!!! I have been collecting vintage, and antique tools for many years, and only came across one that is similar to yours, and i bought it. I was lucky, in that mine had some papers ...
It sure looks WW2 ish to me, but your time frame answer, lies in the stamps, and postmark date, i would think?
We Aim To Please !
No, I have no idea of it's age, based on the small section of it that you posted.
Sorry my friend, but i came up empty with the name you posted. I suspect the name you have, is over stamped onto the original "Pakistan" name, and may be the previous owners name. Just My Guess, and G...
OK, I will see what i can do with that. Meanwhile, standby, as maybe another member will know what you have. PS: While your at the store getting some chalk, get yourself some "Silly Putty", as it also...
Yes, place a sheet of white printer paper over the mark, and shade it lightly with the side of a pencil lead.
If you cannot read it, then i sure can't read it? It appears to have been over stamped from what i can tell. Rub some white chalk over it, and try and make it out again.
Fhrjr2, I know what you mean. Optical allusions and less than great eyesight can change things for me as well.
Nice looking group of knives. You will need to remove them from their sheaths, then take photos and post them. Also, show or tell us all other details, such as length, and any markings on the blades, ...
One more link for you. https://www.ebay.ie/itm/VINTAGE-14-INCH-CAST-IRON-SHOVEL-COAL-ASH-SCOOP-1926-NMC-CO-Chicago-29-OZ-/232745709982?hash=item3630b9b19e
Looks like this one may be a copy of yours. https://picclick.com/Vintage-Cast-Iron-15%E2%80%9D-Coal-Shovel-Scoop-1626-263875398510.html
Designed for spreading "horseshoe type lock rings", but probably would work on piston rings as well, imo. https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-duro-chrome-2112-snap-ring-1920531955
The reason for the semi circle is called "leverage". If it is a tin can opener, (remember, just my guess), you would start your prying action from the top of the can, verses the outside of the can, li...
Everything about this tool says tin can opener to me. Probably for paint cans, and probably a advertising token Give-a-way, for the "Victory" Company, who ever that was.
I have not seen an exact copy of your slip joint pliers before, so, until you clean them up, and find the makers mark, and or logo, my best guess is you have a "Pliers Wrench". They are very similar ...
