Ventilator Adjuster

A while back, we talked about ventilator adjusting rods.  Frank recently happened to find the casting for one in an antique store in Wisconsin.   He recognized what it was and bought it for two dollars.  What a bargain!

Here it is as acquired, and then after sanding, buffing, and mounting on an oak rod.   Now the rod needs to be stained and varnished, and it will be ready for service.

I should have included a ruler in the picture.  The casting is about 4" long.
