Has anyone ever seen a fishing box like this?  I think it may be a kit box assembled from factory materials, either that or it's some fun folk art.  I guess it to be late '50's or early 1960's from the quality of the plywood.  The left side has two drawers and the right has a door.  I note there is no place for a spud, or for fishing rod storage. It looks like the pipe runners and tow bar are hand fabricated. I hunted the net for a couple of hours and came up empty.   Help???????????.

I bought this one about 30 years ago and just found it in a box of old tip-up stuff. It is in new condition.
The long wire (with a flag on the back end) is adjustable with a spring clip at the end of the wood main beam. As
line (laying over the bend) is pulled from the spool the wire pivots and the lead weight slides down making the flag-up. Note the nice brass lug on the bottom of the main beam. This lug is bent around the end and is pointed which sticks in the ice so the tip-down doesn't slide around.
If there was a Ice-Fishing Museum I would donate it.

My son-in-law picked this up for me this Spring from a Yard sale. Very old Kit Kast Pole. I put the black tip on it, it is just a heat shrink for a spring bobber.
Don't know if they ever got a patent but it say's Patent Pending on this rod.

That is a lumber graders rule, used to determine the board footage of a piece of lumber. The points on the end are used to flip the lumber over so grader can
look both sides. Sorry nothing to do with ice.

here is a old Swedish Spoon Auger. this was my father's. I remember him using it when I was really little. he later on got a 7 inch Mora auger then finally in 1990 he got his first and only gas auger. he passed away from cancer in December of 1993 and I ended up getting the gas auger and this Swedish spoon auger from my mother after his death. I have been temped to take out the spoon auger and try it out just to see how hard it is to drill a hole with it.

Fishing is not a hobby it is a way of life

If it is sharp, it cuts really good.
