Looking for some help from the internets,

As I am trying to help find some answers to some cope and drag patterns that were picked up at an auction a few years back.

The Foundry Went by the name Taylor Winfield in Warren, Ohio. I wanted to figure out what they were for? I was told it may have been used to build hydraulic rams, not sure about that although, nor am I sure for whom the parts were made for.

Any sleuths out there that could help direct me let me know.

I'm not sure what you're asking. The cope and drag are not used as a mould for a specific piece. Rather they form the top and bottom halves that hold the sand around a form prior to pouring molten metal into the void in the sand.

Try taking a photo of the pattern next time, it would be more useful than looking at the bounding box.

I have not had any luck with finding the company itself so far. I can get some pictures of the patterns. This is turning into quite the search.

Update: Spoke top some one there and was informed that they had a processing facility and that they are happy to figure out what patterns we have.

Here's a couple of the other patterns pulled out of the shed. Sent out the email to the contact to see what they can tell me about the molds.
