I have been cleaning out my fathers house and I found two of these. There are no identifying marks on them or the box. There were what looked like some router bits in the box. Can some one tell me what this is ?? Maybe point me to a manufacturer website so I can see how it’s used ?

Many thanks

The bigger piece certainly looks like it might be a router guide. For what? Is anybody’s guess.

Whatever it is, it isn’t all there or is an accessory he didn’t need. If you find any T nuts with handles they probably go with them.

Thanks for the replies. Here is everything in the box, and a better picture of the U shaped piece. It has steps of some sort. The piece of paper is standard 8 1/2×11.

Yo, Bubba, you will probably B. slap yourself up side the head when you find out what it is….. A flash from the past keeps trying to expose it’s self after seeing those steps, but no cigar yet. Just put the pieces on each other, and when it lays in there like it looks like it’s supposed to, or a couple bolt holes align, then you question what it is…............ Good luck…..

The steps make me think it has something to do with setting the height of a saw blade. Probably surfing around Rockler’s website would help.

The pad on one side and the steps on the other lead me to believe it’s designed to be clamped on the edge of something, and is adjustable depending on the thickness of what it’s being clamped to. U-shaped part goes on one side, big piece on the other side, and a screw between them tightens it down to hold in place. What it’s used for after it’s clamped on? Got no idea.
