Here is an item I got maybe in the early '80's. I had misplaced it for a while but located it while doing a little cleaning up. One of the bushings is shot.... I bet they don't make parts for it anymore....

Want to win some points?
1) OK lets start with 100 points for the first person who tells us what this is and how it is used or what it does.
2) 25 Points for the first one who tells us what Sears called this.....
3) 25 Points for the first one who guesses the price (nearest couple of $$).
4) 25 Points for the first person to tell me that you too own one (does not have to be a Sears model)

Good luck!

Ed

Hey Mike it seems no one is getting this one so why don't you answer and get the points????

Anyone else want to put out a guess or tell us that's fine too.

Ed, this is to help people learn about tools. I bet somebody will be smart enough to read the posts, click on the link and figure it out. I bet this tool would work even better with an adapter plate for a Rotozip. The reduced weight should make a big difference in the process.

Well here goes-
1. pantagraph - follow a design (letters) with the pointy end and it copies the design in wood with the sharp spinning thingy under the router that is attached to the flat black do-hicky
2. Craftsman table top pantagraph duplicator (SWAG)
3. $69.99 (SWAG #2)
4. Nope I don't own one :-(

Thanks for the chance,

Ian

Good job! Now I can't tell you the real name or price yet, I'll see if anyone guess or knows this information for another day or so. By the way you are free to try again with the other questions... (I'm going to give some hints)

The box says "enjoy your router produce wood engravings" "fun, fast, easy" "enjoy yor router".


So Ian gets the big points!!!! (they are on the way)

But for those still trying to get the other answers:
Ian guess at the name was not even close, it is a R***.A.***m
For the price that was high..... think less then $20

So no one else wanted to take a guess on the remaining points? I guess I'll close this then and tell you the answers.

It was called a Rout*A*Form and I'm guessing this was a sale price but I paid $10.99.
I guess I'm the only one that owns one..... lucky me.
