94 year old guy that owned this house before I inherited a lot of old tools. Nice pipe threading stuff. Very old Rockwell table saw.

Found this tonight digging through drawers.

No clue.

Table measuring bars, for making dado blade and router table measurements? Is the fork gap adjustable?

Not sure. Cant find anything on google. The guy was a hardcore carpenter.

I found a brand new set of blades and drums for planers. Those have to cost a pretty penny

Something different

Can anyone out there help It has the word Middlesboro written on the wood on the reverse side the number 147

The only place I can find with the word spelt in that way is in Kentucky Thanks :dancingbanana: :beer: :beerchug:

The words are embossed

That's short for Middlesbrough England. It appears to be a layout tool. But for what, figure out what the stakes fit on floor joist rafters. Is that a quick release on the chain like on tire chains maybe hang stakes on side of something like wagon and encircle something like corn stalks.

That is a good clue. How thick are the planer blades? would they fit in the clamp? the depth measurements might be used to set the blades depth in the drum.

After pondering the wood balls I thought were markers are rollers. With the rollers against the top of stakes I think it's old time bow for high side wagons and the rollers to make it easier to pull the tarp off.
