Re: A little something to carve the Thanksgiving turkey with...

Wow! I'm wondering, is that factory pearl, or has the set been re-handled?

Re: ELECTRIC CUTLERY E.O. A little secret

I gotta agree with Roger & Gene, I have seen & handled quite a few Electric, Wallkill River Works & other NYK made knives, all with that distinctive NYK Bone. Never have seen any wood handles with that jigging or coloration. I'm wondering what you see under a microscope that makes you th...

Re: Information on this Cattaraugus

I understand, Rhett Stidam had 2 tractor trailer cars filled with this warehouse find back in the early 1970's. Many of these parts have been used in the last 45 years.
At least the seller of the OP knife did not misrepresent this knife.

Re: Help with Thermostat and Relay

Roland, I had a similar problem this past spring. The heat kept coming when the thermostat was set for a low temp. The problem was with the zone valve on the furnace. It wasn't closing all the way, allowing hot water to continue to the room heaters. Check this video: [youtube]www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Re: Shipping first class with paypal when paid by credit card

Whenever I have to mail anything, a small package that qualify's for First Class Postage, I use Paypal Manage Multi-Order Shipping. It's easy to create a First Class label even if there is no money transaction from paypal or ebay. No invoice necessary. I always pay from my paypal balance.

Re: Old Keen Kutter Knives

Dan, Outstanding collection. I'm proud to be the seller of the first knife in that group. Here is one from my whittler collection, stamped E.C Simmons St Louis on all 3 blades 3 7/16 closed.
I think this has some after market engraving on the back springs, done many years ago?
