  1. Wow!! Thank you for sharing the story!!! Your patience and perseverance paid off! I hope you don't mind my asking, are you a Brooklyn resident?
  2. Great old tool , I like the handle shape!! Could that have been made by your great grandfather? From the photos it looks three sided, could it have been made from a metal file??
  3. Thanks for sharing!!. The syringes make great pinpoint oilers!! So, I'm not the only one that has surgical tools in the toolbox!!!
  4. Very nice, great job on bringing it back to life!! Thanks for sharing!!!
  5. I think we're on the right track. Possibly used as a jig setup, on a welding table? I did see a photo of a welding table with equally spaced holes, I will try to post a link. https://texasmetalwork...
  6. Thanks for the reply, I'm still leaning toward an industrial or manufacturing application!!
  7. I've got it!! I'm just a lowly carpenter, but I work with several locksmiths during the day!! They would love that tool. regards, Lou
  8. Hello, I love the photos!1 How does the lock removal tool work? Thanks, Lou

  14. I found a quote from Joan Jett posted on another website; "I grew up in a world that told girls they couldn't play rock 'n' roll".
  15. Hello, I looked at the link, and "Froide a bac Cendres" translates to "cold ash pan". Maybe a handle for an ash pan for a wood burning or coal stove or oven? Fireplace?
  16. Those shallow drill holes could be an owner's mark!!!

  20. Hello, I am guessing it is a Harness Maker's, or, Tack Room Clamp.
  21. So, it looks like Spiegel offered quite a few tools in their catalog. Here is a link to a catalog page that I believe is your saw. I hope that the link works!! https://www.garagejournal.com/forum/...
  22. Hello, That is a cool looking saw. Definitely a hand held saw, you would not have an adjustable angle base if it were to be mounted on a panel saw. I would not call your saw a boat anchor either, espe...
  23. Nice toolbox, side handles are a must on a box that size!! Thanks for posting!!
  24. Ouch!!!

  26. Great catch!! Is the Yale & Towne hook from a hoist? Regards, Lou
  27. Hello, All. Thanks for the replies. One of my early guesses was a Bush Hammer for concrete, never thought of stone. I will start looking in that direction.I think it's a little too heavy for a Meat Te...
  28. The "empty spot" on a floor , (usually a couple square inches) , is where the one of a kind part of a tool lands, and then bounces into the nether regions of everything else on the floor!!
  29. I'm just curious , what does an empty spot on a wall look like??
  30. Cool tool!! I would have brought it home too!!
  31. Is it me, or does it look like the item is upside down in the photos? Or like it is hanging from the ceiling????

  33. Awesome!! Thanks for sharing!!!
  34. Very nice, looks like it was well cared for!!

  48. Nice work on the flange!! Over here we would call our Sheet Metal Workers Tin Knockers, that is meant as a compliment to their skilled trade!!
