« Part 6: Help!! Looking for Old Iron Caster Wheels Part 7 of Misc. Shop Stuff series Part 8: Common Chest Handles »

Went to my Dad’s shop to see if he had casters I was looking for (no), when in a drawer caught my attention.

Looked like something I scanned on ebay, so I flipped it over.

Ah! Have to find a most worthy cause for the pair! Thanks for looking.

did they make SW transitionals?

Sweet find on those hinges. They will fit into your shop fine.

I’ve not seen the logo stamped in wood, but the iron, sure. The decal is a dead giveaway for the era, too.

I was shocked to see the hinges had the logo, only spotted that kind of stuff on the ‘bay before.

i guess this is the first time I’ve paid attention to the dates on gores site. Some of the transitionals were made until pretty recently. I wonder why there is such a difference in the stop production dates? I would assume it was demand.

You’ve got me thinking I need to pay attention when looking at hardware at flea markets.

Smitty is that logo over your bed. If not it needs to be. Nice find.

The only Stanley in the bedroom is the No. 34 tool catalog that sits on the nightstand. Sorry to disappoint. :-)

All the SW talk I do probably sounds like an obsession to the casual observer, but I just like finding examples of all the odd things the old Stanley slapped the logo on so long ago. Hinges, a knife set (which I did NOT buy, BTW), tool chests, tools, etc. Like there are Millers Falls, Diamond Edge, Keen Kutter, etc. folks out there too. I have a couple / three old train sets; they’re pre-war American Flyer O guage, and when I got those years ago it was AF only, no Lionel for me. Brand loyalty, I guess. Or just that there’s so much out there to go after, by limiting myself to niche products there’s less temptation overall.

That’s enough truth telling for a Saturday, I think.

speaking of MF and screwdrivers. I’m sure I heard screw drivers. Anyhow, when I pulled these screwdrivers out of the box I thought of Smitty.

The hack saw is a MF’s #10, the large screwdriver is a champion. Then, isn’t this is a Stanley? I couldn’t find a brand.

The pair have the style of Hurwoods; does the steel go all the way through, and end in a visible (large) button at the butt end? It’s either Hurwood or a hurwood copy. They’re excellent drivers and take all kinds of abuse. The perfect handle is also a nice bench tool. I’ve got all kinds of sizes of them, don’t use them though…

Nice find Smitty, who would have thunk it? Look forward to see it showing up on a project some day.
