My cousin is asking for someone found this in an old Barn. I think part of a shave horse. What do you think it’s from?

Looks like a Stanley 25’ measuring tape. A FatMax, I believe.

Definitely not a fat max. But a solid tape measure no less. Blanket looks to be 100% cotton instead of the typical drop cloth. Well done.

This is a good riddle. I think it’s from a old barn something someone would find.

Yes, its a stitching pony. Clamp the leather item you’re sewing into it, and it holds it so you can use one hand to punch holes with the awl, the other to sew… they work great.

Looks like two bottles of gorilla wood glue to me.
