    Also picked up an ancient 3 pc 12 foot bamboo pole for crappie jigging...just in case it ever cools off enough here for such activities.[​IMG]

    The fishing pole of my childhood. Many hours spent sitting on the creek bank catching little bullheads and bluegill.

    A cane pole from the bank or pier still makes for an enjoyable afternoon, especially if there's cold beer and good company.

  13. Went to a tool auction this morning and got some heavy duty shelving and a pile of pegboard. This was the only vintage thing I picked up. 1950s Sears 6” planer for $70.

    On the way back we stopped at a thrift. I’m a sucker for denim and pearl snaps. Oh...and hat boxes with the innards intact. All for $10.

    Then we stopped at a garage sale and picked up a vintage Stelber exterior light fixture for $3.

    Hit a couple of fleas and yard sales over the weekend

    A seashell encrusted box for my oldest daughter, a Gillette razor (circa 1930s best I can tell from the research I did), and an old shoe shine box[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    71770071_10217734789618772_520715817717858304_n.jpg a set of late forties or early fifties window cornices. these are quite scarce very few have survived intact certainly not in sets.

    Switchboard.jpg A stromberg-carlson 50 line magneto telephone switchboard. This is exceptionally late for a local battery and switch. it's one of a couple hundred which were made for the Navy department during World War II. It's exceptionally complete and is in fact in working order. I'll eventually be setting it up with many of the magneto telephones that I've collected over the years.

    Really nice. Like the old CB also. Based on the radio next to it I would guess you are a HAM.

  19. Good gets Dale! We have a similar water cooler that my wife’s Grandpa used at his construction sites. Painted that iconic industrial light green from the 1950s.

    Hope you had help loading/unloading the heavy stuff. I’m going to have to call my neighbor to get this stuff (from an online auction in Topeka) unloaded. The DeWalt saw was a struggle, the Delta jointer not too bad, but that 1950s Belsaw wood planer is heavy!

    Nice haul, Bob. Good luck getting it all unloaded....especially if you're flying solo like I was. Fortunately the little Nissan is close to the ground,,so its not too much of a struggle to unload.

    That water cooler ought to save a lot of wear and tear on my front door come summertime. I'll fill it up for the kids and put it on the porch and they'll be set all day.....maybe even all weekend.
