I dug around Google image search looking at Goncalo Alves after Tony S posted and found a few dead ringer photos…so since it has no distinct scent and matches the photos pretty well; I’m thinking that’s probably it.

@dhazelton – good question. I was looking at my plastic handled adjustable bevel a couple of days ago and thought it could use a new handle. I’ve been experimenting with ways to cut the slot that don’t involve ripping and regluing the blank, but the stuff cuts pretty hard. As an aside the Japanese pull saw didn’t work. I’m contemplating a wide blade on the bandsaw but that leaves a pretty rough surface, so I’m still working on that problem.

@Holbs – a relic of times gone by, it stands for Guidance and Control. Working fast movers in a different capacity now, but A-10s were good times.
