His uncle, David Nyberg, supplied much of the initial capital to start the company. The company name of Nylint is a combination of both the Ny berg and K lint names. It was incorporated under the name 'Nylint Tool and Manufacturing' and its initial operation was located at 5th Avenue and 13th Street in Rockford.
Original founder Bernard known as Barney Klint and his wife Grace remained actively involved for nearly 60 years in this privately-held company until their deaths in the mids. In the early years NYlint was a producer of kitchen utensils such as cheese slicers, flour sifters and a gravy strainers.
This tooling was purchased from the estate of another kitchenware Ny lint toys. Nylint also did special-order tooling work for other companies. For example, they produced refrigerator door handles and cast aluminum parts for the automobile industry. Inthe company moved to a larger location on 16th Avenue where it remained for 60 years. As with most manufacturers, World War II caused a shift in focus to making war-related products. During the war years, Nylint prospered while employing 50 employees who made anti-aircraft magazines and torpedo-related components for the Federal government.
Nylint produced, almost exclusively, war-related products during its 'Wartime Manufacturing Era. After the war, Nylint, like all manufacturing companies, worked to establish its post-war direction. After an extensive study in latethe company chose to enter the toy-producing arena. This decision was made primarily because of Nylint's possession of existing modern metal-stamping facilities, and it was felt that manufacturing metal toys was a solid choice. They made a commitment to produce toys and soon hired Carl Swenson, the inventor of a wind-up toy car with steering and directional actions.
This innovational toy was based on a mechanism that was on the cutting edge of technology. Not only did the toy exhibit strong mechanical capabilities, it was attractively-based on the real Chrysler Airflow de. Nylint called this toy the 'Amazing Car. Not only did Nylint have a solid product, it was marketed well -being packaged in an attractive box with a color picture of the toy on the outside. Additionally, the box included a diagram of the detailed motions the toy could perform. Believe it or not, most toy manufacturers did not picture their toys on the box during that period.
After World War II there were several large manufacturers of pressed-steel toys in this country. Others, including Tru-Scale, All-American, and Ertl, would later the ranks of toy truck producers. Aside from Buddy-L, Marx, Structo and Wyandotte, who had ly made toys, most of these companies started moving into toy manufacturing immediately after the war. From the get-go, there was a lot of intense competition.
In the lates and earlys, Nylint remained committed to these wind-up toys and soon produced a front-end loader wind-up, which resembled a forklift. Soon afterwards, they made a couple of motorcycle tin wind-ups, a street sweeper wind-up resembling the actual Elgin machine and a wind-up that resembled a popular TV icon 'Howdy Doody' although Nylint never used the name to advertise the toy.
The Elgin Street Sweeper, in particular, demonstrated to Nylint that success could be achieved by patterning toys after real-life vehicles. Scroll down for history, price guides and comments.

It was given to her husband, a painter, by the President of Nylint, probably Barney Klint while he was painting his house. Any idea of value and how would we prove provenance of it coming from the Pres of Nylint?
I'm afraid I really wouldn't know how to prove provenance, sorry! I am attempting to distribute, amongst my four sons, the childhood books and toys left in my possession. One son was particularly fond of Thomas the Tank engine. We have his model In all aspects it is still in fantastic working order, with the exception of having lost the one wheel from the underside. This wheel slotted into double grooves and thus made contact with an eight tongued brass cog.
I believe the wheel was the reason that the Thomas moved and turned sideways when it touched an object. I would appreciate any help or suggestions you might give in this matter. I'm afraid you have to look for one for parts Janice to find that missing wheel. I have seen quite a few Nylint trucks, but not this particular style.Ny lint toys
