496Chevy answered the last official question correctly, the floor is still his.

I posted before I seen the post about being a greyhound mechanic. Could it have been used for some kind of repair to the buses? Like you said maybe a skin seam tool or something to that effect. Please keep us informed because im sure it has a use of some kind lol

Cool. Sorry I kind of sidetracked the thread with that pic of my tool box drawer....The floor is still yours from when you answered the ridge reamer question correctly. You got a question for us?

Well, here's what I found on the roller: It's made by Stiles-Herman Mfg of St. Louis, MO. From what I could find about it online, it's for rolling out damaged fenders on 1920's-30's cars/trucks without removing them from the vehicle.





The Monkey Wrench was made by Bemis & Call of Springfield, MA. It apparently was once the property of Soo Line RR.

60 Edsel is correct. And your punishment for answering correctly is YOU have to ask the next question. haha.

It's a shame they stopped making Edsels when they finally came out with a cool one.
