Antique Piano Tuning & Repair Tools


Piano Makers Bow DrillsPiano Makers Rosewood & Ivory Bow Drill Both of these piano makers bow drills came from the same tool box along with a number of other piano tuning tools I have listed elsewhere. I got the lot of piano tuning tools, including several Rosewood Handle Tuning Hammers / Wrenches in a trade for some nice bench planes.

One bow drill is marked H. S. & Co. for Hammacher Schlemmer. I see no maker marks on the other which is not unusual. It is probably by one of the known New York piano tool and plane makers like Erlandsen, Brandt, or the like. Both are very similar to each other noting the difference in the shapes of the Rosewood handles.

The pads or bits shown fit either drill. Drill pads usually got separated from their drills and it is unusual to find bow drills with them. I will include five (5) with the sale of each or either drill. I will sell a couple separately at $25.00 ea. if you want to complete another drill you have. I also have one all wood bow (see last pic) that will be included with which ever bow drill sells first.

Mouse / Rat & Small Animal Traps


# 1 Sure Death Trap by Davenport Trap Co# 1 Sure Death Trap by Davenport Trap Co. This is a # 1 Sure Death Small Animal / Rat Trap by Davenport Trap Co. pictured. It has a 4 1/2" diameter ring and 6 finger trigger to spring the trap. Overall nice condition. Strong spring and is fully functional.

The Davenport Trap Co. was formed in 1909. Bruce Shaw introduced the No. 1 Sure Death trap in 1909 as “sure death” for mink, marten, muskrat, weasel, rabbit, pocket gopher, moles and rats. He was granted a patent for the idea in 1912. In 1912 the # 2 & # 3 models, which were slightly different, were introduced and this style trap with the 6 finger trigger was dropped. This is an early version marked Pat Apl'd For on the trigger arm.

C. Jillson's Patent Jan 6 1857 Rat Trap by Dresser & Jillson Worcester MassC. Jillson's Patent Jan 6 1857 Rat Trap by Dresser & Jillson Worcester Mass.  This is a rare patented rat / mouse trap. It has a 2" ring and is approx. 7" long. This is an earlier model as I had another one with a later 1858 date and different location. You can see that later one in my sales archives. The brass trigger on this one is marked with the single 1857 patent date, the maker name, and location of manufacture, Worchester Massachusetts.

I have read that they came in sizes up to 8" but have never seen one that big. There is a larger 5" one in my past sale archives at AntiqBuyer.com.

To set, you pull back on the spring loaded bar till the brass trigger sets. Then when the unwary critter passed through the hole the idea was that he would scratch his belly on the small point at the bottom, lift up a bit to get away from that, hit the trigger and Whap, the two spears come down!! The spring is good, and the trigger works as it should. This one would do the trick. A careful look at the pics and one can see a hairline crack in the frame where one spear goes through. There is no movement with pressure, but you can see the crack line. Priced accordingly. A rare piece!!

"AJON" Cast Iron Automatic Anchor for Decoys, Canoe, Kayak, or ?"AJON" Cast Iron Automatic Anchor for Decoys, Canoe, Kayak, or ?  I have had, and could find a similar example of this cast iron folding anchor on the internet marked in the casting "Automatic Anchor". This one has "AJON" in raised letters in the casting. Not sure what that stands for and could not find others.

There is one on Worthpoint called off as a Salesman Sample Anchor for small boats, canoes, or kayaks. That might be right.

Seems like a bit of overkill for a decoy anchor, and not the best of ideas, but I remember having to go out and chase down drifters when using the more typical over the head style mushroom anchors one typically sees. This design would also tend to chew up the paint, not to mention open up at inappropriate times just hanging loose. Nobody ever said all ideas were good though, so - - - -.

The other explanation I found said they were pocket anchors for small boats like canoes, kayaks, and the like. Not quite sure how that would work out either. Thinking back to the Jack London story of the duck hunter and his dog where he did not tie up his sneakbox good enough and it drifted off when the tide came in. It was not a happy ending after that. Funny how a story you read over 50 years ago still sticks with you. Different & Interesting.
