This is a very fine example of a 19th century Patent blacksmiths cone mandrel.

This cone started life in ann old sailing ship repair yard in Maine, USA. The equipment was scrapped and then purchased from the scrapyard in 1986 along with a smaller no-name 48" cone.

Dimensions:
Height 60"

Greenfield, Massachusetts was the home of many tool and machinery manufacturers. It appears the B.B. Noyes Foundry Co. took over the lines of blacksmiths tools or at least copied and manufactured many designs from other local companies as the went out of business. It is speculated that they may have been a job shop and were doing the casting and some manufacturing for these other companies.
