Pattern Maker's Box Items
« on: August 06, 2020, 04:14:47 PM »
Hello, I am in the process of sorting out the tools from a Pattern Maker's Box. I will post pics of the box at a later date.  At top is a Winchester #8744 Two Speed Hand Drill, missing side handle. Next is a drawknife marked WARD CAST STEEL ( not Wards) ,with  some other symbols and lettering, I think it is a Ward & Payne. At bottom is a Sargent Parrot Head Pruning Shear (Bernard on handle). On the right is a K & E Wyteface 100' Steel Tape in the original box. All of these are firsts for me!!! Regards, Lou

The Bernard's Parrot Pruner us perfect for most women's hands.  They were advertised a lot during their production. Handy item, I have a couple of them.
You might say I have a tool collecting problem....

Hi Lou, Sargent would have been the manufacturer, Bernard was the inventor of all that stuff. Great tools. I’m not quite sure what a pattern maker would have used them for.
Schollhorn had his hand in this too.

Here’s a good explanation at DATAMP:   http://www.datamp.org/patents/advance.php?pn=427220&id=15595&set=9

Hello, Mike. Thanks for the info!! The Pattern Maker's box came from his home, so I am guessing that it also held some of the tools that he used at home. Regards, Lou

Pruners might be handy for neatly trimming small pieces of wood or dowel

There's always the possibility that family members, unfamiliar with the tools and faced with having to put the pruners somewhere, decided on "that box there."
