Default "What is it?" #117

What a nice weekend. I got to spend a lot of hours in my shop/yard, I got a few tune ups done, waxed some tables, tried out the Carter bearings on my bandsaw, found an attachment I bought does not fit right.... new brackets are on the way from the company..... I wrecked a belt on my drum sander... the bottom one that costs about $40 I understand....... found out the insert I got for my sander was the wrong one.... I messed up the order but the saw dust flew and it was great!!!!!

I also hauled out a few more things for the "What is it?" game. So do you feel lucky??????

This first one is something we have talked about on the forum, this is an older one but I was told they are still making these..... So you know how the game works, you send me $10 US I mail you the answers and you get to win the 100 points I offer..... no that's not right.... it's $20......

Only kidding but I'll post my address later in case you want to help me replace that drive belt.

The simple version of the rules:
Look at the image, read my posting to see what answer I'm looking for and then be the first one to correctly answer and you win the points and are called the winner.

You can also print out and fill in your name the offical "What is it?" award found at:
www.routerforums.com/gallery/showimage.php?i=107

For those of you who already have a wall full of these you may find the newer small version at:
http://www.routerforums.com/showpost...41&postcount=2

Now you have looked at the picture, please tell us what items are missing from making this tool in to something useful. I am thinking of one thing that becomes two things...... tell us what the two parts are and be the first one and you will get the 100 points, for a second award of 100 points tell us what this tool does, with examples.

Good luck!

Wow, an original Port-A-Lign drill adapter from Sears! (Just like mine) Whats missing? A basket of money and any of the girls from Tool Time? (Oops! Wrong forum) You remove the chuck from an American made 3/8" drill and install it on the bottom of the cross piece, the drill motor above. Now you are ready to drill holes with stability almost equal to a drill press, plus: the V notches allow you to drill holes through round stock. You can lower the bars below the base plate and use them to center your drill on a pipe or piece of wood. You can lower one bar further for support on uneven surfaces. You can lower both legs and by using an angle gauge lock them in position to drill angled holes.There is an adjustable stop collar to control depth of holes drilled. You can mount this to the bottom of a board and chuck up a sanding drum. These are just a few of the many possibilities.

Did you happen to sell these for a while???? An outstanding job of describing what this tool is and some uses! You have done so well that rather then the 200 points you earned I'm throwing in an extra 50 for a total of 250!

Winner!!!!!!!!
