Nicholasville, Kentucky

I collect old canning jars and milk bottles.

  2. Onedtent the antenna wire makes much more sense than fishing line for sure. I can't imagine using it as clothesline wire either. I looked at some images on google and haven't found one matching vint...
  3. That is amazing Onedtent. Son in law is a pilot for the Air Force. I will have to show this to him. Thank you so much. Oh, yes, the copper wire looks original and old.
  4. Jeffgordon24 I had to google downrigger images to see what that is. I am not a fisherman. I have hung a few clothes though blunderbuss2. Nothing fresher!
  5. blunderbuss2 I doubt one would use copper for a clothesline, but, ya never know.
  6. Sean68, I have searched for something to compare them to, no luck so far. They are interesting.
