  1. Here are some pics I took at an auction in upstate New York a few years ago---
  2. Shop built 20 years ago by Amish-----and some pics of signs I have collected
  3. Was raised on a small dairy farm in the southern tier of NY. Started doing a mans work at age 10. Went to a tech school for 2 years, uncle sam sent me a letter--spent a year in Viet Nam. Got a job with a whoesale Hdwe distributer as a stock clerk, worked my up to being the warehouse manager, at one time I had 120 people working for me. Retired when I was 70. I don't post on here very much because I don't have the knowledge that most of you do. However I check in every night to learn some thing new. I have gained more knowledge here on Red Power than I ever learned in school.
  4. From a May 2 1942 Rural New Yorker farm paper. I thought it was a good place to post it.
  5. I think it was in a couple of days-----took it out --washed in running water---rubbed it with a small wire brush---put back in for a day ---washed again ---and it came out as you see it
  6. Probably a lot of you know about this----but in case you don't----I will post. My buddy put me on to this----wish I had known about it 50 years ago.

  7. Southern tier ----Elmira area. That poor old Mc Cormick Deering has been sitting in the hedge row for a long time. Many years ago I used to ride on the fender while dad drove.
  8. They still deliver my coal with a truck like this-
  9. Went through this many years ago with an old house. previous owners had painted over beautiful chestnut wood moulding. Found a shop that refinished furniture and took the moulding to them. They had a large vat that they dipped the moulding in. Worked out very well and it wasn't that expensive.
