I highlite it and do what you said but nothin happens. My computers broke :mrgreen:

I also copied it and then put in the PAINT program to enlarge it and the pixels are realy too big to see any definition along the edge of the tool.

I copy it then go to my mail--hit the "write" option, then paste it there. Then I can stretch it to what ever size I want that will fit the page but it is grainy the larger I get.

Here is what they are:

It is a homemade device that carpenters used to transfer the edge of an underlying board to an overlapping board—marking a perfect cut line.”
Preachers were most often used to mark butt joints in wooden siding and anywhere an underlying line needed to be transfered, such as fitting baseboard. The preacher would straddle the baseboard, tight to the door casing, to mark a cut line using the outside leg of the preacher as a guide, resulting in a more accurate, better fitting joint than if you’d only marked the cut using the visible parts of the casing.

the ones that i make and use in boat building i usually make out of 3/4 or 1" plywood. they are used to reach from the edge of a 'strake' to the joint between two strakes. wedges are driven under the tines, from both sides, to clamp the joint together.

DarenN.......


That's a clever way to have a deep reaching clamping device. Wood workers come up with some very clever devices for their vices :D

I like your bungie cord clamps also that are used to hold each strip of wood as they are laid up next to the previous one. Very ingenious!!

Good guess!!! There are many times I wish I had one of them next to my toaster to grab the short ends or the piece that rips off when being in hurry and lodges down inside where you can't reach it and have to turn the toaster upside down :mrgreen:

Seriously, they look like cocktail forks.
