  1. You may find the maker on the link below. http://vintagemachinery.org/ Also check old online Sears and Wards catalogs. Very Nice old Drill Press !
  2. Nice Old Keepsake from the War Era, pw-collector! As a side note, we always added to these kits,..... Kotex Maxi Pads, for Better Blood Loss Control,..... Shoe Strings and Pop Sickle Sticks, for home ...
  3. Yes, as billretirecoll says, we have Gov. Moonbeam "again"! Does anyone want to take him off our hands for free? I always liked Beautiful Linda's Singing Voice, and still do. I just watched a special ...
  4. I agree with Irishcollector, in that it is a Vintage, Sewing, Piercing Tool, used on cloth, leather, or other. https://www.ebay.es/itm/2mm-4mm-Ruedas-marca-punto-para-coser-/381612352924
  5. I like the looks of it, because it appears it is complete, and in pretty good shape. I'm cleaning up, and R&Ring (as opposed to a complete restore), an old trunk myself. I have found some info on the...
  6. Mom was what they use to call a "Meter Maid" during this period of time, for 25 years. Now that's all out the door now, and they are call "Traffic Enforcement Officers" now, in this new political corr...
  7. As my ole man use to say, "Damm Hippies"! All jokes aside hippie dude, this is all it took for me to get a rise in my pup tent when i was 12 or so, so thanks for sharing!
  8. Absolutely Ron !
  9. Forgot to add one of my favorite links: http://www.antiquetrunkrestore.com/1801.html
  10. Hello: I would not make any drastic changes to it, unless you want to make it a show piece, and sell it. It looks GREAT to me the way it is now. You may want try clear lacquer, or shellack, to preserv...
  11. Since we have no response from the OP, i will keep guessing, if thats ok? I believe the open eye in the center end, is a trigger release, and either a wire rope, or other rope is fed thru a pinching ...
  12. When your lucky enough to have any sort of marks, you need to play them out. Wire brush all, then try the white chalk method across the ridges. If that does not work, try the white paper, and pencil s...
  13. This is the coolest looking tool i have seen in a long while, and may be one of the few left in existence! Having removed hundreds of plugs working for an engine rebuilder many years past, and i never...
  14. These were/are called kids push cars. They were a precursor to the to the All American Soap Box Derby Gravity Races, which was formed in the 1930's, and still going strong, to my knowledge. As to who ...
  15. Hello TA, just got back in town and see you want me to look at post 7, as i did> What am i supposed to be looking at?
  16. I think your can opener description, is pretty close to the function of your tool, and more. What i see is a tool that is used to rip, slit, and or cut metal, using the blade as the cutter of course,...
  17. Since i misspelled glove, in the above paragraph, here is one more link which you may have already seen. Again, Nice Find !! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baseball_glove
  18. Excellent Find! Very early 1900's vintage, either A.J.Reach, or George Reach baseball glove. Allot ot people do not realize that in the 1800's, the baseball glove was "bare hands". Then it progressed ...
  19. What are the dimensions of it? I also think it is for holding a chunk of beef, or fish over the fire, (if it is long enough). As far as gophers and moles go, this is way too elaborate imo. My top gop...
  20. You can buy original bits from sites like ebay, and after market bits from companies like Garrett-Wade, to name a couple of sources. PS: Change my 1931 date to 1901 and after. In any case, you have an...
  21. As daveomeilia says you have an old push drill. To be more specific, you have a No.1 automatic push drill, circa 1931 and after. The knurled end is the chuck, that holds the drill bits. Be careful wh...
  22. Your Welcome !
  23. Looks like you have a "Rivet Press Tool" to me. https://www.google.com/search?q=antique,+spring+loaded,+rivet+press&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS760US760&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjTwMnIg_3XAhV...
  24. Question: The blue hose shows it has a steel rod inserted into it toward the top of this device. Approximately how far is the steel rod inserted into the hose? Or does the hose cover the steel rod all...
  25. Show us a picture of it with the trigger pulled all the way back.
  26. Beautiful Detail on the Sticker! It has allot more detail, than some Countries Currency that i have seen! Very Nice!
  27. Your tube tester is fantastic, and brings back great memories of a simpler time. I remember they were located all over town, but our local drug store is the one we used. You tested your tube, and if i...
  28. Kinda like this, but for a round tool like a breaker bar or ratchet....... http://toolguyd.com/wrench-extender-cheater-bar/
  29. First thing that comes to mind, is a cheater bar, that slides over a ratchet or breaker bar for more leverage, but just my first guess.
  30. Hello: Pictures 1 and 2 are good, but 3 and 4 are repetitious. Can you replace 3 and 4, showing another position of your device? Also, are there any marks on it what so ever?
  31. Another Great looking knife you have jearve!
  32. G'day jearve: Fine looking Machete you have! The way the handle is attached, kinda looks like the hot poured rivet method, as the John EK commando knives had, is that correct? Very Nice blade design a...
  33. Absolutely Gorgeous!!!!!! This is how i remember things made in the 50's, where they took the time and effort to make things look like a piece of working art! I found one page you may or may not have...
  34. Say Slackjack, Look at post #7, as lzenglish already answered it with proof 2 days ago!
  35. Then i call it a multi function hook knife. Sharp on the inside only, hawkbill knife, Sharp on the outside only, came lead cutter knife.
  36. If your knife in the center photo, has an edge on the underside, it could be a stain glass lead Came knife. I have a Don Carlos Came knife, that has that same profile. Question: Does it have an edge ...
  37. Ah Yes, the good ole 8 track. I still have one that is an all in one. am/fm/8 track, and turntable. I even have the 8 track to casset adapter for it, but never use it. Radio Shack was Great for small ...
  38. Gillian, I can see why, as that link is not the one i originally posted, or has been modified. I have no idea why, and do not remember the key words i used to find a whole page of the item B.Smith wa...
  39. As far as i can tell, you have an antique measuring scoop with cutter that dates back to 1901. Here is a whole page of them to help you move your search forward. Good Luck! https://www.google.com/s...
  40. No problem rja1235. The question he asked was "IS The Bottom of the Tube Open? Or is it Capped"?
  41. You still alive rja1235? I'm still waiting for some sort of response from you, to the questions asked, so i can offer my own opinions?
  42. Pilots Survival Knife. I believe from the 1950's to the 1970's, but not positive. frisco https://www.google.com/search?q=vintage+camillus+survival+knife&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS760US760&tbm=isch&tbo=u&s...

  50. Great post, that woke up 2 memories for me, of the 50's-60's era! I was raised, and lived in Trailers, until I was about 14. Each and Every night at bed time, (usually in the summer), Dad would break ...
