Welcome Fooites!

A simple gizmo [images14.fotki.com] for this weeks quiz! All that's needed to win is the name and specific application of this gizmo.

Everyone can play and this week we're offering free parking [images.net3media.com] to everyone that takes the plunge [allfunnypictures.com] and joins in (you know you really want to....).

Smaller versions of this tool were used for making chairs and other furniture. Used in the opposite manner from a spoon bit. I think this one cuts stock up to just under 2". Some versions cut up to a little over 2 1/2".

So is it called a brace and used for making chairs and other furniture?

Is it a router for making mouldings out of wood, like you get around a door frame or skirting board?

The bit (gizmo) is used in a brace for making something a bit larger than furniture.

Not for making veneer or moldings.

Was it used in making wheels for a wagon (going back to an earlier clue)?

[google.com...]

google gives me 5 results out of 1300+

looks to me like it is a tenon cutter or pointer that can be used in spoke like objects as small as tiny chairs for dolls - up to spokes on wheels - or rails for baniiesters/railings.

Found it - I think:

Adjustable Depth Spoke Pointer:

[mjdtools.com...]

for putting the point on spokes as in above furniture, rails, anything that has a tenon [I think If I have the vocab right]
