Comments:
"Simpsons-Sears" branding indicates date from 1953-1983 (the duration of the Sears-Simpsons co-venture in Canada). I've supplied the two missing screws at the very top, and added a small turnbuckle to help secure the drill. No sign whatever that the castings were ever painted. Acquired last Saturday from the weekly Ann Arbor Kiwanis sale. Jeff Joslin tells me that this stand was made by Welliver & Sons, Inc., of Rockford, Illinois.
