Default "What is it?" #130

I got to thinking may some of you need more a harder one to get the juices flowing. That is what this game is about.... or is it?

Look at the picture.

Now decide what the "tool" is that I have pictured.
Tell us about the tool and how it used.

To win you have to pick out the "tool" I'm thinking about, that's the hard part now isn't it.

130 points for this win so be the first one with the "correct" answer and take it all.

I can only guess that "tool" is a #2 soft lead pencil used for making marks on solid surfaces. The pencil was probably used to make a shopping list to purchase a can of tomatoes and a can opener.

The tool pictured is a common can opener used to manually open cans in the kitchen for meal items.

The tool I believe you may be thinking about is the bench surface sander that the can and opener are sitting on.

My answer is so far fetched it just has to be right....

It's a styrofoam cooler. Works great to help keep your beer cold until you're done working in the wood shop.

Cool

You guys are all wrong. Look to the right of the pic. There is a brown bag. This is Ed's dust collection system. He uses it to collect saw dust. It appears to be a # 60, Kraft brown paper bag. It is gravity fed. Just put the bag under what ever he is using at the time, and gravity does the rest. So it is a "gravity fed dust collector".

I'm afraid you guys are missing the sneaky way Ed has chosen to display his styrofoam manual can opener fence. It is used, of course, to prevent splatter from opening cans of tomato sauce from getting all over tools that are no longer kept in their original container.

The can opener is the tool used to open the tomato can, empty the can of it contents and wash the can. Put some dirt in the can, add some worms. So long guys, gone fishing.

Some times I give hints in my first post like "juice" (which could be a hint about something other then posted..... like some people like the juice of a ..........) thus the hint. This tool I have used to help glue small things together, which might be another hint.....
