Topic tags/keywords: question

I propose a fun game. I will start this game now. I am posting some photographs and you (yes you) have 48 hours to guess what it is. The rules are simple. This is really #5 for this game.

1. It must be made out of wood.

2. Or, it must be used in woodworking such as a non-wood jig.

3. If you wish to post your own “WHAT IS IT” take the next number 6,7,8 etc.

4. You mugs post your guesses below. This is the 4th time for me. Some of you must have something like #6, or #7. I’m running out of ideas … so get to work. Thank you SM for #3.

This works with your incra jig to cut box ends…

(or it’s a head vise to squeeze information out of someone during an interrogation… mwuhaahahahaaa… )

i was going to say a library card catalog as brad mentioned above…but thats not woodworking…so my second guess is a box vise? maybe for making and gluing up differnet length boxes?

I have two of these. We give them to visitors to wear in the back yard so we don’t have to clean up the doggie “meadow muffins”.

If it’s not used for making paper into pads, it sure could be. Just add paper and some padding cement and then clamp it down.
