Enter to Win the Tuesday Toolsday Giveaway: Name the Profession That Goes With These Tools

Last Tuesday, we asked you identify an antique tool in order to enter our Dremel giveaway.  Our winner, Ray from Cairo, NY thought it was a meat tenderizer.  Well, Ray, you’re wrong, but you still won! (See how easy it is.)

We received a variety of interesting answers about our mystery tool:  Klingon fang sharpener, Bob Marley cigarette roller, an interrogation/torture device.  A lot of people thought it was a sheet metal crimper, but the real answer is a fluter for pleating fabric/collars. Apparently, having a crimped collar was a hot look back in the 19th century. Fortunately, today, laundry is a whole lot easier. (Check out this easy, economical recipe for homemade laundry detergent – I’ve tried it, works great!)

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a handy DIY duo: a 25-foot tape measure and a 100-foot aluminum chalk line, both from Bostitch.  

To enter, post a comment and answer this question:

These tools are used for what profession?

You don’t have to answer correctly to win, we will randomly pick a winner.

On Tuesday, April 5, we will select the winner then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until April 5, 2011, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the tape measure and chalk line.
