May have started out like this one.
battery is also now a collectable.
32" extended   8" retracted

Those bench pucks are also extremely handy.

I think it is an 8 pound magnet with a light.  More soon.

Hello, Yadda. Nice finds, once again. What do you think the pickup/weight capacity is of that magnetic tool?

I had many conversations with Mike Imel via Tool Talk messages , and via email. I always enjoyed our chats , and he was a big help to me with my foray into vise collecting , especially the smaller Wilton vises. Rest in peace, Mike Imel.

Looks like a telescoping magnetic pickup.

We have a winner.  One of larger ones I've seen.

The wooden fork could have been used to lift clothes from a very hot laundry tub.  My grandmother would boil sheets with just a small amount of soap, in a tub on top the wood stove.

I have a heavy Craftsman version.  Is hand held with knobs and handles.  The motor looks like it is from a router but cannot be removed.  Also 1950s, in a Craftsman steel box, with manuals and an accessory or two.  Still full polished, and too heavy for daily use.

It reminds me of the rods used to open the transom windows above the bedroom doors in large homes, circa 1900.  The rods were always brass, and something this heavy was a possibility in an elegant home.
