Another Christmas stocking stuffer.
Everyone’s favorite bottle openers.

As a special treat for all the good little woodworkers, I have included a mystery opener that I have never attempted before.

Hey Paul,

OK I worked out what you were making just after you “dusted” off the material.

An excellent piece of wood work, however here in Aust you would be arrested for just having one,—even a replica

Interesting sander you have there the Ridgid EB4424, what is the base surface of the sander made from please?

Bottle Opener secondary use:
Confusious Say man with too much Taurus Excreta can almost fool anybody !!

Hi Robert,

It never occurred to me about the legal ramifications of my mystery bottle opener.
I looked it up and it does say that it must contain a metal band around one or more fingers.
But it is probably close enough that I don’t want to chance it by giving it to him.
He is also in the military and they may have other definitions of this.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention and I think it will be safer that I destroy it.
I will give him the one with the nail instead.
As for the sander, I believe the table is made of aluminum.
