    Where There Is A Will...

    ...there is a way. Perhaps, not a perfect or durable way but a way.

    Pretty neat! I'm guessing maybe a product / result of the Great Depression possibly? During those years there wasn't a lot of extra money to buy necessary items let alone a tool. An interesting for sure!

    I think yours is a very good guess.

    There's a story of very hard times, a table on which to put food, individual initiative and a big measure of liberty of mind and action (Please, see my sig line.) behind that tool set.

    Hard times and that tool for sure. What's more some guy sat in some quiet out of the way place and probably worked on that tool for a considerable amount of time in order to get it to work. Working out linkages and leverage.

    Dirty thirty judging by the neck on the brass in the first picture.

    Looked like nice work to me.

    I have always learned it this way: Where there is a will, there is a wont!

    He had the will but i wont buy his cr4p, sorry: fine handcrafted, organic, free range, gluten free cr4p.
