"Spokeshave" is the correct answer.

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.

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.

You also have two sizes of draw knives/spoke shaves other messages....
Thanks for the site! It looks like it's going to be interesting...


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


"Lost in Space" came in first with the correct answer with a visual post. Something lightweight and usefull will be sent to LostInSpace also.
