Default "What is it?" #59

How have you been doing on know what these objects are? I know some of you are playing the game and posting answers and some are just stopping in to see what is going on..... what ever the reason thanks for taking the time to view the "What is it?".

This item I have had for a while. The two boxes are part of the object, well at least what is inside is. I even know that some of you own one.... you know who you are....

So for 100 points and seeing yourself as the winner tell me about this tool. Give some details of how it used or what it is for. Be the first one to do so correctly and the points are yours.

If you can tell me who I purchased this from I will add 25 points to your winnings.

So get to looking and posting......if you like.

I'm guessing here but it looks like a single letter or number templates.

Yes, late 70's early 80's version sold by Sears. One letter or number at a time, used with a router. You then "indexed" to the next letter/number and worked your way through the sign. This model did not work for wider wood so I use to rip then letter then glue up for tall signs.

I guess they would call this a single font tool. The boxes contain the letters/numbers (orginal boxes)...... no need for additional letters as you could use one letter/number at a time.

Good job on the guess..... I bet a few people here still have one of these tucked away somewhere, right?

Points are on the way.
