Books. The Dinosaurium I have beem eyeballing since it came in. Chester I found by chance and it is an absolute hoot, especially given my poetry hobby. The others, ancient history, dinosaurs, and floof.

1979 Wheelhorse C-111
The Kohler engine company strike year Wheelhorse that was delivered with an 11 horse Briggs & Stratton powerplant instead of a Kohler.
This machine features the 8 speed transmission with six forward gears and two reverse gear ranges.
It will be headed up to the Steam Gas and Horse Association as my ride there during the shows.
150 acres is a lot of walking, so this 43 year old gal will be my chariot :p

Vintage Hubbell double pole single throw porcelain base brass toggle switch:


This will be perfect for my restored 1938 Sears Craftsman wood lathe :)

I bought:
1 3/4" mica diaphragm $5.00
2 feet 5/32" latex tubing, $1.25/ft.
Steel needles for talking machine, 100 loud, 100 medium, 300 soft, $3.75/pack
1 clothbound book, How to Get the Most out of Your Victrola, 1923 edition, $12.50.

Looks like I am fixing up an old record player. I should have gotten a crank for it, as what it has isn't the correct style. (It works to start the motor but it's too long; too easy to whack the table with one's knuckles while trying to get the thing wound up.) But I'll get a crank eventually. No big rush.

Awhile ago I sold the cygnet-type horn off my Edison Fireside phonograph. The deal was $350 but I took $275, seven excellent Edison cylinder records we valued at $5 each, and $30 for a solid large size Search-Light phonograph horn which will end up getting restored soon as it is not all bent up or rusty.

Then I also picked up-

2 9/16"x12" "Duplex Round" chimney, borosilicate lab glass, $26.95
Brass oil-font burner collar, fits Kosmos, Matador, and English Duplex lamp burners, $16.95
English Duplex 4" ball shade fitter, secondhand, $26.

These parts are not quite as cheap as parts for a phonograph, but they will go a long ways to fix up the 1890s-1900s banquet lamp aka "Gone with the Wind lamp" that I got at the thrift store for $2. Once I get these parts installed I can get the lamp physically together so it won't be Parts in A Box. (The flower painting on the globe, faux gilding for the spelter base casting, and fuel font soldering can wait until then, but once I do those it'll basically be ready to go.)

An electric hand planer. Always fun with new tools. :D My old one crashed and died, so I had to get a new one today.

Some recent purchases…

I have definitely mentioned that I love sugar skull dogs. I’m actually designing a tattoo of one!
And I got this pillow for my recently redone bedroom.


I have a couple of decoys around but I like the rustic look of this guy.


Shamelessly buying more Pointer apparel. Lol




I don’t really drink alcohol but I use these for my Dunkin Donuts cups lol.
The second one is obviously sarcasm…

A few more things! I couldn’t find the “what are you reading” thread so this will have to do.



These were $2 plush shipping and they’re super cute so why not!!
