This is a terrific niddy noddy. It is held together on both ends by two tiny wood pegs - one is missing, but the piece is still very stable. This tool was used in making skeins of yarn. The spindle is 18" long and the short ends are 14". There is a 4 1/2" crack where it is joined on one end.
This is a pair of antique H.K.Porter bolt cutters in working condition. I did oil the tool just to make sure everything worked. There is some surface rust and some of the original black finish is gone. Otherwise I feel it is in very good condition. Cast into one side of the handles is Pat. Oct 18.92, Trademark HKP. On the head it says Everett, Mass.USA. On the other side it says Porter's "New Easy", Size No. 0. For 5-16 inch bolts. The cutters measure 1" X 5 1/4" X 19"
This is a real nice tool. It says "THE BRIDGEPORT HDWE. MFG.CO NO. 120 MADE IN U.S.A. BRIDGEPORT CONN. The name is a little difficult to read, but the number is very clear as is where it was made. It has been recently sharpened. It just needs a little cleaning up.
This item is a tailors rule. It's in good condition.
