We have for your consideration an antique Barnes 19th century mortising machine. It is marked’W. & J Barnes Rockford, ILL. This is a foot-operated machine used to clean out a mortise. It features fantastic lion’s paw feet. All the knobs and bolts are free and moving as they should. There is original red pin striping that is 60-70% intact. The dimensions of this piece are 53″ tall x 56 5/16″ wide x 32 deep. It weighs 139 pounds. We believe it is a’Type 2′ version (there were 4 versions) of this machine that was made between 1880 and 1892. Type 2 added an additional wood platform to the cast iron table. Regarding the group of chisels and bits: All of the bits in the orange boxes are marked’DELTA Milwaukee’. There is also a bit without box that is marked’Delta Milwaukee 476-3. All of the chisels in the orange boxes are marked’Home Craft Power Tools. Most of these look lightly used. The tools in boxes match the labels on the boxes. There are five additional bits and chisels that are heavily used and one other part that we don’t know what it is for. The feet will be removed and the wooden crosspiece material support will be removed, so reassembly will be required upon receipt. This antique mortising machine is pre-owned. It is missing the spring that activates the foot peddle and this would need to be replaced to make this piece operational. The part of the base that supports the front left foot was broken off. It has been retapped in a stable manner so the leg can still be bolted on, but it sits back a bit further than the right leg. The piece still displays beautifully as is. Included is a group of chisels and bits, some of which are in their original boxes. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed. You really should take a look at things from the RoofTop – it just might change your whole perspective. Careful packaging is always a priority.
