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...
Your Welcome !
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 !
Vintage Faucet Repair "T" Wrench. https://www.google.com/search?q=vintage+faucet+seat+T+wrench&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS760US760&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwix_If7nKPfAhUfHzQIHcFkDvsQsAR6BAgC...
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...
Photo#1, engine valve grinding tools. Photo#2, engine valve spring compressors, Phot #3, one valve spring compressor, and one piston ring groove cleaning tool, Photo#4, old school, and or poor man's, ...
I forgot there was 2 items A.O., Lol! You may be right.
This is an old, "Standard Junior Sealer", envelope flap sealer. https://www.google.com/search?q=vintage,+standard+junior+sealer&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS760US760&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=Gngfyw_XsuC5h...
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 a Fantastic Collection !!! Love It !!!!
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...
Very Nice Finds! I remember these well, and also the "Technology Explosion" that took place in a very short time span, such as: These games, VCR's, HBO, Calculators, and Crude Home Computers, to menti...
Some History for You.... https://stevenjohnson.com/soldering/flameirons.htm
Hi, This is an old, hand held spot light, that was powered from a vehicle cigarette lighter receptacle. https://www.google.com/search?q=vintage,+electroline+spot+lamp&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS760US760&tbm=i...
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...
USMC Corporal, E-4 insignia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Marine_Corps_rank_insignia
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...
What are it's dimensions?
Ah Yes, One outside of every 5 and dime in town, when there were 5 and dimes. Those were the good ole days, unlike today! IMO
Your Welcome, and by the way, as you can imagine, leaf springs are made from some of the toughest steel available.
Great find, and a Very Good start to a Collection Hobby. There are allot of museums dedicated to barbed wire, so you should have no trouble with info, if not by a member here at CW. The thing i like a...
Same design as your other bolo fighting knife, with a decorative carved wood handle, of which i know not the meaning of, if there is one.
Forgot to add the "horn" in water buffalo, as in "water buffalo horn handle." I wish we had an edit feature here at CW! lol
Your knife is of the "filipino negrito bolo knife style". Most of these were, and still are, hand made from old vehicle leaf springs, with a water buffalo handle. Great Knives! I have owned one in the...
You Are Welcome!
I can see from your new photo that my guess was not so good now. I will look again later.
