Vanished tool makers: Jobborn Manufacturing Company, "Stream Line Tools.", Hamilton, Ontario



I recently found this old wooden sanding block.

The earliest reference I can find for the company is 1914, when it was located at 50 Guise Street.  By 1951, it was out of 11 Brock Street East.  The company seems to have specialized in auto body tools, but also made items like reamers.  Below, their products offered in the 1949 Garage Supply Company catalogue:
