OR, perhaps the "wood joints" are the red herrings and the tool is in fact a drill guide???

However, if it is a drill guide I don't see a set screw to hold the drill bushings in place.

hmmm,

It has dawned on me what it's use is.........................but my lips are sealed.

Peter........ your going to laugh when you realize it use esp after a prior discussion we had a while back.

Wayne...... you might have to move the "one you save" next to the other one you will use.

John...... for the size of what I think your shop is, you might want to keep one at each end unless you'll be getting a golf cart as a tool caddy.

Ron....... I see the drill bit being used but in a more lateral thinking way.


cheers,

Now I gotta go look at the pic again.

C'mon, Roger, it's okay to share guesses, that's not inside info.

John,

After spending two days at Bridge City Tools and going through the entire development of the JMP I feel that I've been indoctrinated into the BCTW version of the Illuminati Society.
So, my Karma couldn't handle revealing it's inner secrets.

Besides, once you guess what it is, and follow it's logic..... it's no longer a guess.



ps. You could use get a ramped up battery for the golf cart with a conversion kit and drive the cart to your tools and plug into the cart and forget about the whole electrical install thing.

I think it's an expensive version of this: Trim Gauge with a drill guide included.

Regards,

Dan.

Geez Roger! If you'd told me, I could have won one! Check out John's blog at BCT - someone figured out what it was, describing it with the obscure:

Use me once
and Ill flip for you.

Use me twice
and Ill be a-gap-ed,

Im a perfect device!

Apparently that was enough to win a prize...
