I think this will be handy on the upcoming rocking chair project.

Clever how the designer got three different flat surfaces and one decreasing radius curved surface on it.

I have PSA paper down to 100 grit.

All that said, and the price appearing, redundantly, in one of the images, it may be a useless implement, at which time the estsimated original price of $12.95 is an irrelevant fact.

I might have blown my allowance on this one.

We’ll see.

Kindly,

Lee

I have absolutely no idea what this tool is or what it does….but for the price you cannot go wrong.

Thank you Greg – before I saw your comment I was feeling especially uneducated!

Lee – what wonderful things is this going to do for you?

How silly of me. It’s an Asymmetric Gojaster.

I apologize for the inadvertent omission.

Kindly,

Lee

Jeez, and I thought I was looking at the infamous Ronco 4-in-one Sandmate!
Neat score, though. I should spend more time in thrift stores…

Asymetry is the norm in my shop. I didn’t plan for it, but really BIG clamps seem to correct it. :)

Bill, think of the stress and strain on your ligaments that would be as nothing had you the opportunity to reach for the ergonomic handle of your Asymmetric Gojaster. Problem solved, in short.

Paul, please, it’s not a Ronco. Don’t put it in that category; it deserves the respect of any other Ginzu product. if you continue this distasteful diatribe, I shall give Chef Tony your email address.

Kindly,

Lee

Make yourself a nice long handle cause it just screams Ice Chipper to me….. Thrift stores are pretty fun to go to cause you never know what you find———- both in merchandise and mainly people…..kinda like closing time at the bar.

Somebody mentioned thrift store? Looks like something for the ice to me, too. LOL. You can never really go wrong with a thrift store …

Concave the back a bit….now it’s a Shoehorn. Old time cannons used a much larger one of these, to raise or lower the end of the barrel.
