  1. A few relics yesterday

    Yeah that's right on. You would file that type of key down and it would open almost any lock of same type. That is what we kids would do and then call it a skeleton key. They were real easy locks to get into and it wasn't hard to make a skeleton key out of a normal front door key. Back in the 1930's you didn't have too much worry about someone coming in your door as the mindset was a lot different then. Besides there was a loaded shotgun behind almost every kitchen door.

  2. A few relics yesterday

    I'm curious to know just why you fellas call that key a skeleton key. It looks just like the keys that I used to let me into my home when I was a youth. We called it a front door key or a back door key. When entering from the outside the key had to go all the way through the door into the iron latch/ lock. They were coded by cutouts and grooves like the keys of today are. I still have my front door key but I don't know why. Old Tom
  3. Hi all.

    Hi there Mr. Looking. I don't recall just where or when I met you but you are welcome here to browse and ask questions. You will probably learn a lot from just watching for a while. You can also private message someone (PM) on the side. Old Tom
  4. I found some gold today

    Hey Mr. Point, I don't need any more skunks following me. I haven't found a nugget in the last few months and now I have 'fallen and couldn't get up'. Been laying around for the last four days and still plenty sore. Waiting to heal so I can get back at it again. Old Tom

  9. Hope I have room to prospect.

    Doesn't seem to be any other equipment around except for a shovel. Every one is digging straight down in a round hole. Can't figure just what they were after, water? Things aren't this bad out here yet, Cooper. Old Tom
