A piano bench? Man, they made everything. I've got a vise made by the Charles Parker Co just after the Civil War!

Fine looking pieces of wood. Something to keep an eye out for when attending a local auction.

1993 Wanted to get out of Dodge so hopped a 60 ft. stay sail Ketch as Engineer to New Zealand. In a junk sale bought a Winchester 2 cell for 10 penny coin which was about 6 cents U.S. When returned 1994 after 14,000 miles under sail, gave to a friend who collects Winchester stuff. He still has it. In gun shops you could buy .22 and 9mm Parker Hale suppressors for 12.50 NZ (about $7.50 U.S.) no permit required.

K V Manufacturing is another company I have dealt with for many years. Among  other things, I purchased drawer slides, handles, adjustable shelf track and supports and many items used in the construction of furniture and custom cabinets.

JamesK,
I found a site with Winchester flashlights dating from 1922..... to I believe the mid 1950's.
If you remember what it looked like you may spot your old model.

If interested, Here's the link:

http://www.flashlightmuseum.com/flashlights_list.cfm?list_method=browse&brand=Winchester&start_record=1&end_record=40

I didn't want to go overboard and get to off topic/or over do it, but I have quite a few early Winchester fishing lures , tackle , reels, Bamboo fly rods etc to name a few. But most I don't have pictures loaded of them. Years ago tackle and pre 1935 outboard motors were my main collecting interests. I've managed to downsize that collection over the years.

Last couple hours I've been trying to find Scales made by NPM pre WWII, but no luck so far.

Cheers,

PS: Here's another WRA I like:

Winchester 2 Cell Chrome and Copper Bullet 1939

Back to stock makers,
Pedersen Mfg Co made stocks and Hand guards for Underwood, most found marked P-U in the slingwell. Hand guards were marked PEDERSEN U or just P-U.
In 1929 brothers Walther, Paul, and Albert Pedersen formed a custom golf club manufacturing company, the Pedersen Manufacturing Company, in Mount Vernon. In 1941 they moved the business to Wilton, Conn.
