Stopped by my favorite antique store on the way home from a job today. There is a vendor who has been selling some older knives(mostly junk)and old tools for some time now and there is always something new there when I stop in.
Today I found a couple of knives(posted elsewhere);a couple of tools,and several old glass cutters.The prices are always reasonable which is likely why there is always new merchandise showing up.
As for tools: I found a Plomb WWII era small breaker bar.Unusual in that instead of being 1/4" drive it is 9/32nds drive which makes it either pre 1940(which is when 1/4 " drive became a standard size)or WWII military issue.$2.50. Also found a nice little 4 inch Craftsman adjustable wrench.$1.00.
The glass cutters were kind of unique.One is a combination glass cutter/cap lifter/knife sharpener. There is a partial decal on the handle but it is pretty much unreadable. I'm still trying to decipher it.$1.00.
#2 is an old Red Devil glass cutter that has the image of a little devil cast into the handle.$1.00.
#3 is a very unique one. Made by Goodell Tool Co. of Shelburne Falls Mass. with a patent date of March 31 1896, it has a rotating head that holds six cutting wheels that can be moved into position by loosening a screw and moving the head.
These three and a couple smaller tools were in a package marked $3.50.
I hate to say it but I am starting to collect old glass cutters and knife sharpening tools now along with a few nut crackers. HELP ME!
