    Hakensack, N.J, that looks to be from the 30's or 40's with 4 mounting holes.. One is a Moosehead-Whitley, Exerciser Co. NY, that looks to be early last
    century, has 3 mounting holes.. The last is a Nichols No. 309, patented June 12,1900, has 3 mounting holes..These last two have an attractive filligre around the mounting boss.But they are both different..One of these last two, and I don't remember which, had some historical significance but its lost in
    the smoke and cloud of passing time to me right now..And so what do I do
    with them ? Put them up for offers or what ? Please advise..

    Welcome to the forum Fred! I too would appreciate seeing some pictures of this vintage equipment. Speed bagging is an activity that truly invites all people to give it a try. I am not a boxer, but have always viewed boxers as being the top of the class, in terms of fitness level and conditioning.

    I can't wait to some photos of the gym and equipment. Would it be possible for you to post some sparring/training photos of boxers in the gym as well?

    Sounds like some pretty cool "treasures." I'm very interested in making an offer on one of those swivels...

    I guess Trainer Raul and I will need to plan a trip down to Portland for sure!

    I'd love to get one of those 3-mounting hole swivels to finish off this restoration:
    http://www.speedbagforum.com/forums/...php?albumid=84

    It originally came with a Spalding No.5 swivel...you wouldn't happen to have one of those in an old tin box?

    ...and welcome to the forum!
