Irons and Boards
« on: October 18, 2019, 01:37:42 pm »
Made a couple ironing boards and bought a few old irons, two are coal fired and the middle one is propane fired and one little electric that`s on the sleeve board which we made also..

Very nice looking boards  8)  I once seen an old steam iron at a gun show that was made by Empire (same as the toy steam engine), with a boiler mounted on the side that looked just like their horizontal toy engine boilers. Kind of wish I would have bought it now...
