Three examples of this weeks item.
They are generally used in multiples of two,
but occasionally just a single one is employed.




Roughly 4 inches, 10 centimetres across.
What are they?

I know Mr. Bamber likes antiques, and that fits the bill, gotta love antiques road show, and Merican pickers! I had a buddy give me a 1890's cast iron sewing machine, its a Singer brand, I wonder if its worth any money? It needs serious re-finishing, or should one leave the patina on it?:unsure:

By all means leave it alone. Depending on the model anywhere's from $250.00 to $2,000.00.

Yeupers, its black and has silver script kind of fading on its sides, so you reckon I should hang on to it stevent? 1564888193334.png Looks a little like this unit, but more crusty....
