    Has it been annealed or just baked a little? The pattern seems to be a cross between a jersey and a connie, but I can't say I've seen another one like it.

    Gotta remember which were not actually makers.
    For example Craftsman and Norlund were just names.

    Norlund made their own axes. As did craftsman (Sears) at the Fulton plant. Though by the time my craftsman axes were made it was
    by another company. I included them on the list as they were both manufacturers of axes at one point. I know Sears bought the craftsman name in 1930. I think the Fulton plant was still operated by Sears at that time but I don't know that.
    I was obviously mindful of only naming makers when making my list. But thank you for keeping an eye out! :thumbsup::thumbsup::D

    Tremendous! I love the sod roller and the lamp. Both very steampunk.

    The roller reminds me of an old joke. One day I came home from work at a landscaping job.

    My wife asked, "what did you do today?"

    "I laid sod," I replied.

    "That bitch again? I thought I told you to stay away from her!"

    Another great score Miller! Cruisers are my favorite pattern, though I've yet to find a Plumb. I look forward to seeing it cleaned up!

    Colombian machete assortment from sportsman's guide.
    Gave the tapanga away already, and I only really plan to keep the 14"er and the billhook. I've tried it and don't like the large panga so it'll go to another neighbor or something.

    Hee hee!:D

    I have discovered the hard way...Covid19 is taking its toll out on the USPS, hitting certain areas of the country harder, limiting transportation and personnel.
    Patience is all thats required...and a little optimism.
    I Have Neither lol!!!

    Three years ago JB kept finding weirdly shaped handles. Top of the pic axe with black tape and the one underneath Rockaway axe are just few examples of those handles.
    Have I, by accident, stumbled on possible explanation for those peculiar hafts? This handle looks commercially made to me.

    I believe the seller was wrong calling it a Masting axe and it is actually New England pattern.

    That is one really cool H.D.S. & Co score!!
    I do need to find an H.D.S. & Co tool or even auto tool kit would be cool.

    Great score PK!

    First post-virus flea market offered up a decent day over the weekend. I carried 3 hatchets home including this very red one. Underneath the paint was a pleasant surprise.
