WTB: Cast Iron File Handles
I bought a couple antique cast iron file handles on another forum (example photo below), and I’d like to locate a few more. I figure someone on here has a 5 gal bucket full of them that he bought at a yard sale for a buck.
The ones with the elongated thumbscrew (left two) have a larger hole to accept the tang than do the ones with the flat, round thumbscrew (right side ones). I am mainly interested in the larger ones with the elongated thumbscrews, but tell me what you’ve got for sale. They don’t have to be pristine, but I’d like them in basically the shape of the ones in the photo, with no missing parts. Finally, since these are cast iron, they can be cracked, so I’d like to avoid that.
Can anybody help me out? I know it’s not a big dollar transaction, but I’d appreciate it if someone could locate some.
