A four-way sharpening tool; two places for knives, one for shears, and one area says; mower, Made in USA is written on the top. A lightweight old adjustable tool, measuring 6-5/8 inches length, with lots of lettering. Rather unique! No maker's mark, but most likely was made by the Apex Tool Co. and that would have been written on its original package, which was said to cut glass, sharpen lawn mowers, sharpen skates, grass shears, sickles, scythes, hoes. The glass cutter is at the corner - was advertised to last for years and cut like a diamond!
This is a nice clean used collapsible canvas antique bucket/pail with the rarely seen metal swing handle with the wooden handle. We believe it to be pre-WWII era. The design is very well engineered and manufactured, with very good strong frame work including the swivel pins, frame arms, even the handle and handle bail wire, all very sturdy! The canvas is brown with some wear, but about 95% intact, with a few small wear holes around the top rim area mostly, one or two small wear holes on the bottom frame area, both the top and bottom holes are around the frame part. We see about 3 tiny puncture holes in the canvas near the top of the bucket, that would slowly leak if the bucket was filled to the top. If someone was to want to use this bucket, it would need to be treated anew to make is more waterproof. It will hold water now, but water slow seeps out over a few hour period. The canvas is fairly clean, strong, and is still flexible, not brittle or fragile. The bucket measures 10 tall (14.75 tall including the handle bail in the up position) and is 11.5 in diameter. In the collapsed shape, it stands about 1.5 tall. A very well made collapsible bucket overall!

This is a vintage box of 5000 staples to fit either a Model B or DT-30 Stapling pliers by NEVA-CLOG PRODUCTS INC.

Be sure to check your pliers model first, as these staples are too heavy duty to fit into the lighter duty pliers like the model S for example. A hard to find vintage box of staples!

This is a good old, primitive, hand forged grafting froe of knife. Most likely forged from an old file or similar tool, with a good solid tang going all the way through the wood handle and bent over on the end of the tang to hold the wood handle in place, a common way to hold the handle in the 1800's era. The wood handle may need a little work if you intend to use this tool, otherwise the handle is well attached, but has some splits in the grain that cause it to be a little loose, however it is not cracked in half, still in one piece. At we understand it, this tool was made to cut into the lower trunk area of a tree or shrub, for the purpose of introducing a new grafted limb in that area. There is a rounded cutting edge that is 5 long, is well formed but has not been sharpened for many years. It is fairly sharp, but need the cutting edge smoothed and honed sharp. The tip that is shaped much like a slot screwdriver tip is solid, and has a little wear at the tip mostly. An interesting hand made tool!
