Question About An Old Miter Box
I wasn't sure if this question belonged in General Discussion or Tools. Looking at Tools, it seems to be about current tools. Please pardon my blunder if I chose wrong.
I have a really spiffy looking old miter box which has two adjustable 'wings' (for lack of a better term). I'm trying to figure out what they are for & which way the should face. When I got the box, they were facing out the back, but out the front seems to make more sense.
I looked all over on line & only saw vintage miter boxes with the spaces for the wings, but no wings, so I'm no further ahead.
If you don't mind looking at the photos & lending your expertise, I'd be grateful. Also, do any of you recognize the brand? There are no markings to be found.
Thanks Very Much!
