Nice Old Flashlight. I think You Meant to say Permissible, as Opposed to Progressive? These were Certified by the Dept. Of Interior, to be safe in Underground Mines, Gas/Air Conditions.

Very Nice Looking Knife ! I have one just like it, and my guess is 1960s-1970s era, as i have yet to do the proper research.
I am right about the Steel, Look it up! Holding an Edge does not Matter so Much when Your Plunging it into another Persons Heart, Now Does It?
Hello: You have a Gerber Mark 1 "Clone Dagger", made in Japan, in 1980-ish, and sold as "Rattler Brand", in my opinion. The Type of Knife is a Dagger, and meant for one purpose, which is to Kill. Your...
I agree with bobby725. Just to add, "True Temper Underhill, Model 70" waffel head Roofing Hatchet, circa 1950-1960s.

I agree with afterthought, and slackjack, in that it is a flat belt tension device tool. I did not find the "patent applied for" version, that you posted, but did find a few look-a-likes. https://m...

I hear Ya Roy! It is hard to believe that people are as Rude, and Clueless as they are in Today's World. I have been cleaning up some very old posts around here, to help some people out, but my bags ...
Looks like an old "Kennedy-Kits", Tackle/Tool Box, that was originally green. Yours is missing the Cantilever Top Tray.
"Ouch"!! Great Solve, and Great Info. T.A.
10-4, got it.
My Pleasure A.O... I will be around if you need long distance help. Make sure it has Refrigerant in it before you let it run, as that is how the pot is cooled. Then put several milk Jugs of water insi...
Hello Tim and Lori: My best Guess is that you have a wall hanging, mail/letter storage slot, for incoming bills and such. Could be Amish made, since you mentioned you found it in Penn.
You have a very old, "Leather Harness Makers Foot Vise". https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS760US760&biw=1093&bih=501&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=Gx4YXIjtFYbR0wLo9r2ADA&q=vintage%2C+foot+operated+h...
Your Welcome A.O. The good news is that your freezer uses R134-A.. Refrigerant, as opposed to R-12. Here is the Compressor Cut Sheet for You. http://files.danfoss.com/technicalinfo/dila/06/ff10gx...
Pic#4, appears to be a "National Automatic Can Sealer", circa, 1930's and beyond. https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-national-automatic-sealer-163877599
I also believe i know what you have, but refuse to say, until you answer the size question posed by Abshire.....
PS: Sorry, forgot to say, NO Offence !!!!!
@Blunderbuss... the first time i saw pic#4, i lost my lunch, and that was 4 yeas ago! Now its back, like a bad case of the crabs, please spare us...LMAO
@Abshire....I believe you are referring to a "Reaming Tool", as apposed to a "Rimming Tool", which removes the burr left after a cut ?
Pics. #1 and #2 show a "Universal Drill Press Stand", where a portable drill motor is fastened in, to make a drill press. Pic.#3 shows an electric scroll saw.
Your Welcome !

My best guess is a gasket, and or leather hole punch set, but will you need to turn at least one of them over so we can see the other end.
Nice find, and the price was right too. Having worked on these many times, i can tell you this (from what i can see). Someone has install a tubing piercing valve, which indicates it was worked on, mos...

Hey Trooper, you found a good one. This is an old, #A-196-A , John Deere Tractor Wrench, circa 1911-1912. These are referred to as "Cut-out Wrenches". https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/john-d...
My guess is "Vlchek" was the maker of your "Combination Pliers", also referred to as "Slip Joint Pliers". This Company was in business from 1894 to 1958. http://alloy-artifacts.org/Photos/tools/vlc...

What are the overall dimensions? Can you flip it over so we can see underneath it? Are the planks on top stapled, glued or other? Do the 2 hex head bolts on each corner go thru or are they just decor...

Hello, You have an old Soldering Iron.
Your Welcome, for my little part. I can see why you like it, as it has a very clean, well made look to it.
You are very very welcome compasspoint, and I hope you get a big book on manners in your sock.
Hey blunder, it sounds like you are trying to squeeze another joke out of me, is that correct?????
To me, with th 3 pin scales spacing, and the single curved fancy guard, it looks factory made. If you have no markings, you need to do the ever long photo lineup matching. If i owned it, it would go i...

Apparently, the jury is still out, on where the white tail brand is from. Some say it started in Arkansas, and was later imported from pakistan? I found some discussion about it below. PS, I have been...
