Been wanting a pole saw for a few years now.  Rented a Stihl commercial a couple times but they are heavy and with my bad shoulders the saw sat a lot more then it was used.  Finally bought a small Poulan Pro package with line trimmer for considerable less than a Stihl.  I know the quality is not there but I can handle this one.  Used it yesterday a trim up a Mulberry bush growing up inside a windmill.  Worked great and will  get some use out of this one.

Hi All,

Happy Memorial Day!

Thank you and a Big Salute to all the Veterans who have fought and served to keep our Country the U.S.A. free.

 

 

What is this tool?

We see them at sales and they always sell them separately from the box lot.

They must be something special.

Thank You,

Candy T. and Family

 

 

I found out what it was... a Scythe Anvil.

My neighbor just gave me this bumper jack for sharpening the blades on his tractor. It works, just needs the moving parts oiled up from sitting. I’m thinking about making a bracket or something for lifting tractors.

Thank you for sharing the picture of what looks similar to an old friend of mine.  Have a very similar model in my dads shop that while not as clean and pretty still works.  I think they were made in the late 1950's / early 1960's and for the most part worked very well when cars had bumpers that were made for lifting the vehicle up with.  ON the jack we have there are packings around the plunger and release lever shafts that can be snugged up if they leak oil at those locations.  Looks like someone may have modified the actual brackets that contact the bottom of the bumper on yours - not sure. 

 

My dad made an adaptor that attached to the jack so that it could be used as a transmission jack after he got a used hoist in the 1970's.  Good luck with the jack.
