This PowrKraft All Saw belonged to my father-in-law. He used to make plywood furniture—sort of a Danish Modern style—TV cabinets, end tables. Around the 50’s through the 80’s. I cleaned it up, put it in my office on the shelf. I think it’s kinda cool.
This is an 8’ folding/extension ruler that I still use any time I get the pleasure of hanging a door in an existing frame. It’s VERY useful for the inside measurements where the 6-footers just don’t cut it.

I know you say this is not a music post but I own the CD “Old and in the Way” featuring Jerry Garcia and David Grissman. As an FYI, one of my sons gave this to me as a gift. I love to put a good CD in my audio system in my shop and this album is one of my favorites.

I have one of those rulers too and I love it. My Dad sent it from Sweden where it is widely used. I personally don’t like the measuring tapes because they always bend too much.

Have your say...
