Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Craftsman Router Kit

Last week we showed you a picture of a two-handled gadget and asked you to identify it.  Not too many correctly guessed its identity – it is an exercise machine made for building upper arms. Fortunately, exercise equipment has made some big advancements.  

We randomly picked the winner from all the comments, and that lucky person is Rich from Purcellville, VA, who was one of the few who guessed correctly.

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away Craftsman Router Combo Kit.  The kit includes a 9.5-amp, 1.75 hp fixed-base router with a portable worktable. The handy table has a smooth laminate surface that adjusts to various heights.  

To enter the Craftsman Router giveaway, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this strange-looking tool (below) is used for and what profession uses it? You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner from this post.

Have you been cleaning out grandma’s attic this winter? Not sure what to keep and what to throw out? Find out the telltale signs for identifying antiques and treasures, plus find advice and instructions on how to refinish them.

On Tuesday, January 17, 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 January 17, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Craftsman Router.

    It looks a little like a curry comb. I wish there was something to give a size reference.

      I agree….size DOES make a difference….in determining what something could be that is…………

  5. Lidia says:

    It is hard to guess how big it is, but I think of a dough cutting tool.

  7. MichaelJ says:

    I think it is a mold used in plastics.

  8. Candace Crawford says:

    Cement stamp used by some people who totally need to fix me a new patio!

  9. Wanda says:

    If it had a bottom I would guess cake pan but since it doesn't I would guess concrete form for stepping stones

    A leather worker stamp

  11. John Peterson says:

    I'll go with Cement Stamp used by cement workers.

  12. Latrina Galloway says:

    I'm gonna say this is a mold for making decorative stone/brick that masonry guys use

    a fancy, bottomless baking pan

  14. Kari says:

    My guess is a cement form used by masons. Hope I'm right.

    A mold for forming mason stepping stones

    Some kind of concrete form.

  17. george says:

    concrete form used for stepping stones

  18. Bob K Val says:

    Looks like it is made from forged steel so it would probably be heavy, but not knowing how big it is makes it hard to guess. So I'll go with ravioli stamper.

    cement form

  21. Michael Mallick says:

    I Think its an Antique Grout Trowl for Tile

  22. Nan109 says:

    A form of some type. My guess would that it is used with cement. If not it would make a great quiche plate for the giant at the top of the beanstalk. Jack could have used the goose eggs to whip up a nice one. Everyone knows, real giants eat quiche.
