Thamesville Metal Products

Today’s photo takes us up Highway 2 to Kent County, where I spied Thamesville Metal Products, home of Bulldog Steel Wool.

If you’ve ever refinished furniture, or needed to remove some surface rust you understand the usefulness of Steel Wool, one of the greatest inventions ever! šŸ˜‰

According to their website, Thamesville Metal Products was founded in 1933, the factory looks every bit as old as that as well.

Another reason to loathe the big box stores (if you needed one) I went to the orange home improvement store recently as I needed some steel wool. I bought the no name made in China steel wool (the only brand they carry) and it was garbage. I set out to find some Bulldog Steel wool, and to support a semi-locally made product, and finally I found some at the Home Hardware on Seminole & George. Try to buy local when you can.

One last shot of this nearby building. If my eyes don’t deceive me, I would hazard a guess that this is the former Thamesville Passenger Rail Station. Any of you rail fans out there know anything about this station?
