Milton Driveway Signal Bell

Ding! I am just barely old enough to remember when gas stations used to be full service. By the time I was a teenager most of the local service stations had already been replaced by what we have today, talking computer gas pumps that try to sell us stuff. Given my limited experience with what things were like “back then”, I still find myself nostalgic for a time I barely knew, and for the sound of a service bell. That is why I decided to start carrying these Milton Driveway Signal Bells. While it will most likely never ring in a gas station again, it can still be put to good use.

Perhaps, on entering your store, instead of a common desk bell with a note to the side that says, “Ring for service,” you could have a signal bell with its black rubber hose on the floor with a sign that says, “Jump up and down for service.” Or maybe you have trouble keeping track of when your teenagers are coming home at night. Or maybe you just want to really annoy your neighbors. Your imagination is the limit.

SASI Military Kitchen Knife

SASI US Military Kitchen Knife


This SASI knife is not to be confused with a SASSY knife, which would feature a pink furry handle and a zebra stripped blade. The SASI knife was purchased from a US government auction. I know almost nothing about it besides it’s impressive length: 17 1/4″ overall.

Millers Falls Wood Chisel Set

Millers Falls Wood Chisel Set

We’ve got enough NOS Millers Falls stuff, that I decided to create a new section in our closeouts which I appropriately titled, “Millers Falls”. This 5 pc chisel set is just one of the wonders we have left from this old timey US tool company. The accompanying canvas tool pouch is made by our friend Callie, right across the river in Kansas City, Kansas.

Custom Stamped Brass Tags

Our custom stamped brass tag business is taking off so we’ve added a number of new shapes and sizes. Each tag is 18 gauge solid brass (US made by C.H. Hanson). Whatever phrase or words you can imagine, we can stamp with our trusty 1950′s Graphotype machine. This first new addition is a 5/8″ x 1 29/32″ nameplate. It also comes without the custom stamping as well. Make your own trophies. Label everything in your apartment so your roommates stop taking your stuff. The possibilities are endless.

We’ve also added a Hexagon tag. It comes custom stamped as well as plain.

These tags don’t have to say, “I am a robot. Teach me how to love,” but they can if you want them to. This octagon comes custom stamped as well as plain.

Old Forge & Mayhew Punches/Chisel

Well, the government surplus section was getting so big, that I decided to chop it up into multiple sections which now include: Auto Body Tools, C.S. Osborne, Mayhew & Old Forge. This move prompted me to finally get some of these Old Forge and Mayhew punches online. I got most of them on today, but there are still some more upstairs that are yet to be sorted through.

Charlie Mylie Box Art

For Epstein’s Day this year we had a very special guest “box artist”, KC’s very own Charlie Mylie.

(I realize that the above sentence requires quite a bit of explanation, so here is a FAQ that should answer any questions:)

What is Epstein’s Day? Tell me. I want to know!
What is box art? What is this?
What is KC? I don’t know what this means.
Who is Charlie Mylie? Who?

In honor of another successful Epstein’s Day, as well as having our first guest box artist, I’m posting some of my favorite box art requests in no particular order.

Thanks Charlie and thanks to everyone that participated in Epstein’s Day!
