And I thought Walker only made mufflers. The factory in Racine is now gone. I don't know if the name still exists or if they were bought out. Saw the factory every time we went down to play on the beach.

Hal - If you don't want it, sent it to me! :-)

As you know, I live in Kenosha, WI, about 10 miles from Racine, and I'd give it a really good home....

Best wishes, Keith

The trouble with tools: you gotta' work to get your money's worth.

Hal, you won't have to work hard for that one, but I bet you put in some work restoring it.

The original Model T screw jacks that I have with the Ford script on the handle are also marked - Walker Mfg Co. Racine Wis.
