Kept your work moving right along that way. This one shows it was well used. Slight bends to the shaft and the tip is well worn. Great old piece of history.

Traps appear to function properly. Would make a nice additon to any Trapper's collection.

A set of 5 brass weights, from 1 kilogram to 50 grams. Not quite sure why they are in kilos, as England measured in pounds and ounces - however, they all have Standard stamps, and the 1 kilo has 42 stamps on its sides, and one on the top. Four other types of marks also, underneath. Maybe these are from Continental Europe. The stamps have letters in shields, and the last few are numbers, being 84, 88, 90 and 92. The 500 gram weight has four marks, again letters, then numbers, ending at 92. Underneath are the initials WR . This weight is quite scarred. The 200 gram weight has 10 marks, ending in 86. Also has WR underneath. The 100 gram weight has only a B mark. Underneath is DS. The little 59g weight has a hole in the side, and only one stamp. (It weights correctly 50g). Underneath is a monogram of the letters AJ, and 39 . Wooden box has a split, which would respond well to gluing and clamping. All weights have lovely feel of their age.

This is a very nice pair of what appears to be hand forged sheep shears or scissors, tested on paper, and they cut very well, good straight 2.7 long cutting edges. I know that many shears for gardening were made this way, but I rarely ever see any less than about 12 long, these are only 6 long overall. A pair of shears in this style, and in this good of shape is very rare. They are sharp, clean and ready to cut paper, and perhaps other materials. Very nice old tool!

This is a nice clean hand crank tufting and embroidery machine marked on the side of the tool, THE STAR MFG. CO. LIMITED WASHINGTON PA. PAT. FEB.2.92 and has similar labeling on the included original box and instructions.

The machine is in 99% like new condition along with the needles, but the label on the box states there was 4 needles originally, so it appears the No. 2 is missing. The bottom of the box is in good shape, missing some of the old wrapping paper, the top is missing one end, but the top label lettering is still intact, so tape on corners, in fair condtion overall. The instructions are a bit fragile but intact with some wrinkles and fold noted. Overall a rarely seen early patented tool for the rug maker!

Offering this nice clean small brass machine / engine grease pusher cup (thread cover top type) lubricator with a 1/4 pipe thread fitting end. The outside diameter of the top section is 7.5 , and the overall height is 1.0 . A rather hard to find lubricator in real nice shape overall!
Offering this nice clean brass machine / engine oiler cup (thread cover top type) lubricator with a 1/4 pipe thread fitting end. This one is marked LUNKENHEIMER CO. CINCINNATI O. NO. 1 . The top cap seems to have had a hole drilled into the top of it, as with many of these the user often just fitted a lose cotton material inside and that material would allow oil to slowly run through the oiler. I guess the past owner of this one must have got tired of taking the cap off each time the oiler needed oil, but for what ever reason, the hole could be tapped, and a threaded plug fit in to keep out any dirt. The outside diameter of the top section is 1.0 , and the overall height is 1.9 . A rather hard to find lubricator in real nice shape overall!

This old pair of hedge trimmers has blades that measure 11 inches long. The handles are about 1.25 inches in diameter by about 10.5 inches long and are of old hard wood. They were evidently painted blue at one time as there are some blue areas of paint left on the handles. There are rivets that hold the handle caps on to the wooden handles. The blades enter the handles through these handle caps. The handle cap were probably red, long ago, as there are still areas of red paint on one of them. the hedge trimmers open and close very smoothly, but I don't believe they are sharp enough to cut anything. They are fairly heavy...2 pounds.

This one has an nice turning on the handle, nice looking, and is solid, but has a minor split near the brass furrule, solid still because of the ferrule. The handle alone is 6.5 long, and the overall length of the rasp from end to end is 18.5 . The iron is clean, no rust, and just a few tiny pitts noted.

This style of hatchet is considered to be for uncrating and crating of fruits and vegetables.

Screwdriver Solid Brass Handle Machinist Heavy Duty
This is a nice clean old heavy duty screwdriver that measures 13.25 long overall, with a .37 wide tip.
