If it’s perfectly round, which I can’t tell cause of all the shiny, I think it’s a burnisher, for putting edges on scrapers.

No, its not round, its more of an oval with smooth surface.

Thanks TCCcabinemaker & Nicky. Seems like that is it. The video shows a better view than the picture.

Well it was either that or an ice pick with a broken off tip ;)

Veritas is a woodworking tool company, LeeValley is a site that I think maybe the only way these tools are marketed, so it was easy to go right to it. I don’t see any options for Veritas turning stuff anyways, but a good guess.

Yes. It appears to be a Veritas Tri-Burnisher and the LINK is correct “TCC”. Lists at $32.50.

That page also has a “View” component and an “Instr” component (Instruction) that you can Dowload as a PDF File. It also has “Video” that shows how to sharpen a Card Scraper, part of that being, putting the “Hook” on using the Burnisher.

Veritas and Lee Valley are the same Company. Veritas is the Design and Manufacturing Arm of Lee Valley. In fact they are now known as “Veritas & Lee Valley” Robin Lee is a member here.

If you click on “Woodworking Index” in their “Woodwrking” section it will take you here:

http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/index.aspx?cat=1

“Turning” is third from the last on that list.

You can also do an “Item Search” in “Woodworking”. It takes you to a “Search Page” here:

daveMu:

This is at least the fifth time I’ve seen a post (on here) by you with the same three Red Squares.

As I said to you before, when I receive a notification at Home on MY Computer and there’s a Reply from you those x’s are LINKS to 3 sites always Woodwrking, Rockler etc. ANY Post I watch and receive notification of at home has a Reply from you.

I’ve also asked you on those other Posts if you are doing a “Click Through” = $$$$’s

Maybe it’s of no consequence. Just wondering, that’s all. Care to explain?? (AGAIN)

Also: ”No idea what that is hmmm” From all the Posts above how could you NOT now know what this item is???

My Post alone gives you everything you need to know plus all the links at “Veritas. Lee Valley”

Thank You: Rick

Rick, it appears the images daveMu has posted (at least in this topic) are tracking cookies that link back to a company in Chicago called CHD Solutions. I imagine he is tracking the number of ‘hits’ his images receive in order to determine the amount of traffic that Lumberjocks receives.

Pretty crappy, if you ask me; since he’s not contributing anything of value to this site.

Yea! I just had a look at his last 6 Posts. ALL the same, 3 or 4 Words, 3 red x’s.

“Great Minds Think Alike” Mark …LOL… I have an IP Tracer on here and it traced back to “HostDime.com,inc” 189 South Orange, Avenue, Suite 15005, Florida. Phone: 1-407-756-1126.

I also have a “Windows Cleaner” that makes MS Disc Clean Up and “Tools”, “Internet Options” “Delete Browaing History” look sick! CHD Solutions is ALWAYS on there with DOZENS of other Cookies. Along with HUNDREDS of .dll Files and Temp Files.

FUN EH!!! ...LOL..
