I just picked it up a few weeks ago...actually the guy i bought it from delivered it for $25 then picked up my old 5 sectiopn boiler for nuthin'!

Anyways, its an old niagar 36" jump shear. It was, until this evening, battleship gray with the NIAGARA script in white. I stripped it and found lots of different casting numbers, but none resemble a date of manufacture. None of the bolts have any markings on them (grade,etc) so i figure its pre- WWII....can anyone help!

As long as the blades are in good shape - don't sweat it Doc. Sounds like a keeper to me!
