Well I think I broke the picture uploader now.
And by the way Miller. You may have just started yet a other quest/obsession/collection for me. Now I'm going to need different sizes. Thank you.
Glad i could help
We tend to "inspire" and or "motivate" each other from time to time here
well thank you for your support!
I didn't have much time after work today. But enough to uncover an old Simonds etch on that 5' falling saw. It has info etched into it regarding raker depth and cutter set. It's pretty cool! Does that help date it? Definitely older that a lot of the ones I see.
Crescent ground. Regarding set and raker depth it says "requires very little set and hardly any in frozen timber. rakers one thirty second lower than the cutting teeth for soft wood and one sixty fourth for hard wood" no 325.
Says a lot more too.
And here's a couple axes; KATCO and a Snow and Neally. Both with overlaid bits.
There's no makers mark on this one but it's an oldie;
I cleaned these two items up as well. The one "thing" with teeth was handmade and I have bo idea what purpose it served. Any of you recognize what it could be?
Most everything else, while pretty cool, isn't really post worthy in my opinion. Have a great holiday everyone!
The toothy thing is probably a stone dressing chisel, if I had to guess.
I was going to say a leather stitching perforation chisel thing, but I have no idea. Awesome finds, man
In the leather realm one guess might not be a “pricking iron” but instead it’s a pinking iron.
But I don’t know. The handle looks to come to a bit of a fine point. A little rough maybe, was it blacksmith made?
I figured you would know, lol. I imagine it had some sort of handle whatever it is.
I'm betting an ice pick/shave. Used to have a wood handle on that tang.
This suspect that you are right on both counts.
Maybe a saw tooth ice shaver or chisel.
If you need to lay out some evenly spaced holes with your auto center punch, this will work. The Aluminum punch has a retractable sleeve that lets it be used like a transfer punch on countersunk holes. Think hinges.
Those remind me of the automatic center punches marketed by General Tools here in the States. The aluminum one (model #77) has a light spring and is great for wood. The steel one (model #78) has a heavy spring and is better for marking steel.
That's cool how that second punch is added to it.
The retractable sleeve on your aluminum punch reminds me of a Vix-Bit - made for drilling centered holes for door hinges and the like.
The thing that looks like a second punch is just a pivot. All the punching is done with the axial tip. The sleeve on the Aluminum punch holds a punch instead of a drill bit. So you mark the hole and then drill it. You can even mark the hole for door closer bracket screws.
That's so cool!
That has me drooling
They come in Cast Iron too?!?!? Shame this one was blown out so bad. Sure is neat.
