Could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure this patent is the
answer to 1528:
Hardware for hanging overhead track in say an old barn.
From what I could figure out, Rowe Manufacturing in
Galesburg, IL is out of business.
Great job on finding that! I'd say this is probably the right patent, but
as you mention it's still possible that it's incorrect. I'll add the patent
to the answer page and pass this along to the owner of the hardware.
I appreciate the assistance, I don't always have the time to do the research
necessary to find the answers, so it's great to have some help, it's a lot
more fun for me when we figure out what the various things are for.

Oh, I really appreciate your effort with this every week!
If I don't find anything worth reporting back with I don't.
But just because you don't hear from me doesn't mean I
haven't been investigating :)
I'll probably send you an email in the not too distant
future. There are a few other old items I have some info on,
but no solid answers. It will take me a bit to assemble my
haphazard notes, links and such.
