Thanks LT.
Do you have pics of the Napanoch Ax Collection?
I would love to see that when you get a chance to post some pics.
Hope you have a good Thanksgiving.

Video of parser being used. I do not have the ability to post a link, but if you go to the latest roundtable thread the last post by Smiling Knife has a link to a video of Trevor Ablett making a knife. To the right there is a list of other related videos. down this list is a video of a parser being used. Maybe someone can post a link. There are quite a few very interesting videos about knifemaking on this website. (youtube)



My computer won't allow me to play the video to make sure I have it right but here is the link Edgy is referrring to...............


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlF6OTED ... re=related

If someone will be so kind, please let me know if this link works for you.

Just going through post on this great forum :) and found the above Video, of a Parser the young man :oops: in the film is me :oops: when i worked for Taylors eye witness Sheffield back in 2008. I still use a parser on my knives to inlay shields.

Hello that was an amazing video. Frankly I always knew what they did but not exactly how. it was interesting for me since I was given some time ago, a large box of steel shield patterns ( I guess that would be the name ) it was the pattern part that is placed on the knife for the parser to go into. In any event these were the actual ones that were used on the original G Schrade shield inletting machine in fact it was the same machine in the book written by his son George Schrade and his accomplishments. When I got these I was told that the actual machine was long gone. That being said there is a bit more to this story that your film suddenly made clear to me.

Perhapes 15 years ago I was in the factory and I met a senior employee who had been with the firm for many years. While talking to him he mentioned that Henry Baer had given him many years ago a strange looking tool of some kind. The employee had said that when he was given it Baer had said that it was an important piece of prototype cutlery history but that he ( the employee ) did not remember what Baer said it was for. I tried to buy it or at least see it but the fellow said that perhapes in the future but right now he wanted to keep it. Then one day years later I saw an ad I forget where, I believe it was pre ebay in any event I bought it sight unseen . I got it in the mail but did find out that it was the implement and the same person who had retired and was or had moved to Florida.

I have it kind of suspended between two display cases over my desk . I have stared at it virtually every day, it appeared obvious that it was used in shielding but frankly I am not very mechanical so I just was not seeing how it was used ( and it really is pretty obvious ). There is a changable point cutting tip. then a flywheel the center is a round piece that goes in a chuck like a drill bit . There is a wood double handle to hold it steady once a variable speed power source is applied. There is a string on the handle which is not used in the use of the tool but merely to store it on a hook or similar. it is kind of a cross between a parser, router, drill bit whatever and it might have very well been part of that original inletter or at least something involved in its invention. I do not know why it just didn't sink in until I saw your video.

I am including some pics of the tool . It is to cold to go out and try to show the box of old pattern dies. Thankyou Stephen and should you come accross any old cutlers tool I am in the market for the museum. Thanks again LT PS one of the tines I believe is broken off the bit.

That is a very interesting tool, I have seen an old film of a tool maker in Sheffield I think around the 70's using one of them, ::tu:: they are very similar to the parser i use but on yours the bow is attached.
I have worked with a couple of people who visited the Schrade factory when Schrade took over Rodgers and Wostenholms in Sheffield, yours might of originally come from Sheffield back then.

here's a picture of my parsers,

here's the breast plate which you wear on you chest, stamped on it is "J mox" this may of been the cutler who it orginally belonged to.

Anyone know when the annual dues are supposed to be paid again ?

I got a news letter today and it sounds like a lot of progress has been made toward getting the museum up and running. ::tu::

Hello I have been remiss in my postings I should get everyone up to date. First of all we have overcome virtually everything we have all the legalitys as well as the physical plant all set up with display cases ect. However something always comes up. Right now we do not have the funding needed to sustane us for a minimum of a year which is what we are shooting for so that do not have to turn everything off or remove displays once they are catalogued and displayed. We are shooting for the spring please remember we began this project around the year 2000 it took 8 years to write and get the needed legislation written and passed. For anyone interested we are still maintaining the temporary museum on my property and to give tours upon request. It is extremely frustrating. Especially when I see grants and donations for everything from a catskill mountain borscht belt hotel museum to a 400,000 grant for a dance studio at Bradley field in Walden a project by a local actor who has appeared in various movies and was a voice of a lobster in a Disney movie. Several million for a library in Grahamsville which is a small village that has some important people and happens to have some well off influential residents. It seems like the simple basic history of the area its people and what was an American history is not paramount to these other causes. In any event we hope that we can get going early next year. Another factor is that while organizations like the Ellenville library which also once in a while displays some of its massive repository of artifacts and otherwise simply just keeps accumulating items is funded by tax money and has paid employees we on the other hand rely on dues, donations and what we will be able to raise from knife shows ect as soon as we are open and functioning. There answer is that we are free to donate our collections to them . Nice of them, Then they can sit in a storage area with the other stuff, until they are designated as surplus to fund a statue, a personal agenda, or something similar. It is a battle and it simply renews my faith in the human race that No good deed goes unpunished and that people all have there own agendas which usually revolves around there personal needs. You asked and that is the straight of it . Hopefully we will be functioning in the permanent facility early next year. I have some positive qualitys I am fairly knowledgable in the subject and am known in the field. My collection and the collections of several of the members are among the finest still to be found anywhere. We have over come a myriad of difficulties and are very close to culminating a project that many have said I was crazy to even begin. Aside from that my other quality is in running a state prison which has not been much of a help in this project. There are also many fields of expertise which I lack one of those is the knowledge of how to exploit funds from grants or donations or whatever all the grubbers who are so good at it can do. I have never asked for money and have always prided myself on that fact. The result is that I am not as efficient at it as a lot of people who make there living procuring funding are. Thankyou for your interest. I should post more especially in lieu of some of the dandy pieces which I have found. With the fondest regards to all of you LT

Sorry to hear about the funding trouble. I have no experience in political matters but I can just imagine the hassle it must be to go through. This country has turned into whoever has the best "Lobbyist" gets what they want while other good causes suffer.

Have you tried running an ad in Knife World as a medium for increasing membership?

Do you maintain a web site for the knife museum? If so place a donation option on that page where visitors can send money via PayPal. Just throwing out a few ideas.

Not as much interest in Knife Lore as there was before :( , but I for one miss your posts in this forum ::nod::

I would love to see some of the new items you picked up recently :wink: ::tu::
