Another Odd Tool For The Shop

Last Spring, I was out on my annual yard sale quest, when I ran across this interesting, oddball tool.

This is a wood rasp affixed to a wood plane-like handle.

I suspect that this is a home brewed tool that someone cobbled together. There are no manufacturer marks on it whatsoever.

After taking it home, I tried it out on a scrap board. It works wonderfully! Very comfortable to grip, as well. It definitely has earned a place in the handsawgeek file/rasp arsenal.

You just never know what you will find floating around out there in the wild!

As I understand it, those were made for auto body work.

Thanks, Ocelot,

I never would have imagined that this is an automotive tool! What an unusual item to run across at a yard sale.

Nonetheless, it works very for taking material off the edge of boards. Since I don’t do much in the way of auto body work, I will still use this in the woodshop. Thanks again for the info.
