Topic tags/keywords: question


Most of you were on the right track for part of it’s use. In this case I only needed part of one side flattened.

TS sled

The other use is for drilling angled hole in the cylinder. The piece has index marks at top, 60°X2 and 90°X2.

DP angles

Oh, I’ve seen this before. It’s a Boy Scout Camp outhouse multi-roll toilet paper holder. You use a coat hanger to hold the rolls on.

I’m not sure if it is one man’s junk, or a Lumberjock’s treasure.

This is the first self powered, model I D 10 T, laser saw guide. You mount it on your miter gauge and site through the two holes to line up the work with the saw blade.

I’m surprised you guys didn’t get. They were all the rage about 40 years ago. I think they were sold by Sears.

It holds a 2×2 with old baby food jars full of fasteners attached to it. Spin the jars and take your chances!
