I am going to love having a non worn out new key if I ever get one.

Has there been a trivia question asked? The answer to the key question was Briggs and Stratton right?

Dave hasn't answered yet but what I found was that in the 40's Briggs and Stratton had a strike and ended up licensing the rights to their key and locks to GM's Rochester Products Division. The same people who made carburetors and fuel injection systems. After the strike both companies continued making keys and locks.
The key I showed says Rocher Products one it. The more interesting one was the key that Joe G posted showing both Briggs and RP on it. If I am right I'll pass on asking a question and secede to Joe.

the key on the right had a knock out with a number stamped in it ,when you bought the car you would knock it out and keep it in case you lost your keys you could have one made at any GM dealer.

I picked up my key this morning and it definitely fits both the door and trunk but did not fit the ignition switch. Either that or the ignition switch is frozen.

Well since Joe hasn't checked in for a while I'll toss one out.


This tool had a specific job to do in the thirties. What was it and who manufactured the vehicle it was designed for?

It looks like it would be for installing tube shocks with the square shaft.

Tommy you are right. Although it's not made by Herbrand. This one is made by ChicagoCo.
It was used for adjusting mechanical brakes.
Your up. Give us a good one.

It's very big like two foot square but I think some has been cut off. "Sanding pad" what do you mean?
