I also fell prey to the new stuff by painting and entire deck surrounding my pool with it. Looked good. For about a month. It did not last a year before 99% of it was gone, washed away by rain or dried and blown away by wind. Worthless.

More fun and interesting history and perspectives on this group of posts. I like hammers 1,8, and 21, all for different reasons. Maybe 21 seems the most graceful. Who used it ?

pamtnman, Like the others here, I have an opinion, and here it is. You are more or less whistling in the dark, worrying so much about precise bullet diameter in antique ammo that may or may not shoot in your rifle. My own experience shows that old

Raimey - good information on W. Foerster. Does the stated business term of 1801-1883 influence our 1909 best estimate date of manufacture for this example? Or could the situation be similar to that of Mr. and Mrs. Kleszczewski/Kleszewski where a re

Steve (SKB) has a great process for cleaning the stock wood without damaging the finish. He shared it with me and I used it last year. It worked great. He’ll probably be along shortly and can share it with you.
