    Decorating the Shop Wall with Antique Calipers

    I agree, $75 is closer to the correct price, I see nothing rare there.

    Now it makes sense with a hinged tailstock. I turn tiny parts all the time so I get this. Normally one would slide the tailstock back out of the way to reload the Chuck/collet for the next part but...

    My first thought was hollow mills like Larry said. Makes one wonder what else the guy that made them had on his bench. Hinged tailstock, adjustable hollow mills or pin vise with spotting? He sure...

    I don’t think it is Goodall Pratt or any other commercial co. I love the idea. Since I do tiny parts I can see the advantages of it. I so often have to move my tailstock to do things to the work.

  7. Rare 2nd Starrett catalog on eBay, April 1 1884

    First off let me say this is mine. I thought a while about if I should post it here and after getting messages thanking me for putting the photos on eBay so they could at least see this and that it...

    Love it, I always thought those looked ugly with wine. So if anyone must do this and your Goodwill store doesn’t have them, go to Ikea, but they are $12.99 each.

    A lot of stuff from that period was polished with pumice which would very similar to fine steel wool. I use those 4 colored foam polishing sticks women use on their fingernails. Then it was lacquered...

    Popular Mechanics magazine put out a book, I think in the ‘30s on how to make machine and woodworking tools from scrap, old car parts and pipe fittings. Of course today the value of the antique car...

    Asquith, you know the rest of the thing is pretty amazing too, I mean when you look at it you can only wonder just what was the inspiration for it.

    Gee Asquith, should I say what it is? I looked up my hunch and I was right. Funny thing is the square tube frame is what gave it away.

    Btw, loved the expresso maker!

    Would a thread with a sticky so it stays near the top explaining what the asterisk means help? Maybe if it had a bold eye catching title? Also say you used 3 asterisks, would that be more noticeable...

    I have a 4 x 36?, yes the top drum is crowned, there is no lock on the adjuster knob. Just set it while running and forget about it. The thing runs great, always has. Love it.

    Great, I’ll have to compare it some of mine when I get back to the shop. One thing is for sure, those VEE notches were added by someone, didn’t come that way from Stevens.
