Re: Forager from my grandfather

Thanks for the info, Dick. I really appreciate it!

Anything else I should check to really make sure it's authentic, or does everything check out in your opinion?

I asked my grandmother what she could remember about how my grandfather came across it, but she couldn't recall. She said she'd think about it and see if any memories popped up.

I'm going to go down the path of restoring it, so I'll check out the restoration page here. Do you have any advice on any restoration tips that are specific to the Forager?

I will have to strip off the lacquer as a start and then go from there, I guess. I'm not sure why it was lacquered, unless at some point someone just got tired of cleaning and oiling it...

Anyway, thanks again for sharing your knowledge!
