Last Month’s Winner
Last month’s mystery tool doesn’t have a mysterious name: it was simply a tool for setting teeth on a handsaw. The photo came to us courtesy of one of Fine Homebuilding‘s contributing editors, Mike Guertin. He spotted the tool in a tool box while giving a presentation at a trade school. Thanks, Mike!
Bob Neises, from Overland Park, Kansas, submitted the winning guess. Bob’s tagline is “the nicest guy in real estate.” And, he sure knows his tools. His correct email wins him a year’s subscription to Fine Homebuilding magazine.
Tools may be known by different names in various parts of the country, but there is a common, accepted name we’re looking for. So even if you and your buddies call it this, but we’re looking for that, the final decision is left to the editor. Sorry, those are the breaks.
To make the competition fair to those who receive this email at home and don’t see it until the evening, all correct answers received in the first 24 hours will be put into a hat, and one winner will be drawn. Good luck!
