Though I've used them for other things, it's absolutely a screen installation tool for repairing window screens. My dad has a trailer park*, and he has to replace screens just about every time someone moves out.

*He prefers "Mobile Home Subdivision". You know us white trash and our egos. :)

that is for tracing a pattern onto material using carbon paper. My mom used one frequently.

Are replies allowed in this forum? I can see the tools/buttons for replies in other forums, but not this one.

Anyway, this is a tool for setting the splines in window/door screens. It rides on the spline to press it into the groove.
Because of brief technical difficulties, posting to this forum was not working so personal messages were sent to me with heads-up and answers to Mystery Tools.

"dzierzak" came in with the earliest time of 11:10 and he is our winner. congratulations!!!!!

"hiker5" was next, he got first visual post with correct answer. We'll give a hiker5 something lightweight and usefull also :)
