Nice. They look great on your bench, Jim. I'm sure you're going to find them wonderful for marking.

What's that cheese-grater-looking thing on your bench?

Good eye Peter! Not sure what it's called. I inherited it from my parents. We've had it ever since I can remember. We always called it "the melba toast slicer". You put a piece of toast in, close it, then "resaw" it down the middle with a bread knife. Don't use it much, only at Thanksgiving. It's great for reducing carbs in your turkey sandwich! You can get more stuffing in this way!
I've never seen one for sale anywhere before, I had to fight my brothers for it and am very glad I won!
Anyhoo, it's out in the shop for repairs, I need to do something for the missing feet.

That's pretty wild, Jim. Do you think the holes are there just to hold the toast? Or do they serve some other function?

Boy. The things people come up with!

Yup the holes grip the bread. Works great.

Jim,

Sorry fior the late reply, but it was great meeting you at the Beverly, MA L-N Event and thank you for the kind words about the BC awl and Kadet marking knife. I'm glad to hear you're happy with them. The Beverly Event was a great show for me. That is also a very historic area and I wished that I could have arrived a day early or left a day late and poked around a little bit. If there is an L-N Event up there again this year, I'll try and make it.

Take care and cheers, Bob
