Can anyone help me identify what this Tinner's stake would have been used for.

Thanks.

Very interesting stake plate. What are the dimentions? Is it an early Pexto (48 x 12) Could you take a picture of your table for us and any other stakes of interest? 8)

Rickey,

Yes, the stake plate is a Pexto 980. It is all of 12 x 48 and about 85 pounds. I also have a 983 revolving plate that I am setting up on a portable travel stand. The stake in the picture is the only "interesting" one out of the 30 that I have. I am thinking it is for making buckets and pails. I have two of them. The rest are all standard Pexto or Niagra numbered stakes plus a few shop made ones.

The table is something I built myself to hold the stake plate, a patternmakers vise and a small tail vise. I store assorted "stuff" on a bottom shelf. I'll snap a picture of the bench next chance I get.

Here are three views of the workbench for your veiwing pleasure. I have not built the drawer units to go underneath so things are a bit scattered.
