According to the packaging, use is "just as easy as driving a tack" (' Just as easy as driving a tack ') This box and its contents are more centenarians, with beautiful graphics and everything is in very good condition for its age.

Parmenter & Bulloch was created in 1864 by Charles Parmenter and William J. Bulloch. The business began in a small stone building on the west bank of the Ganonoque River, using the river's water to provide hydropower. When the river was low, machines were often turned by hand. At first they made all kinds of household hardware, but in 1876 they turned to solid rivets and in 1884 tubular rivets. They also made shoe buckles, ice tongs, and various hooks. Steam eventually replaced the waterwheel, and rivet manufacturing became the company's sole product. ” “In 1889 Charles died at the age of 43. After his death, the company continued to grow and later became the main supplier of rivets and bolts in the construction of American and Canadian airplanes of the First and Second World Wars. " The company was finally sold in 1946. (Source: http://progress-is-fine.blogspot.com/2012/03/parmenter-bulloch-mfg-co-ltd-ganonoque.html & https: / /woodviewinn.com/the-inn/)
