Hello from Hazard!
Not a peep on Item No. 615, so we’ll repeat it this week. It measures 13 inches long and six inches wide.
But we heard from three more readers who confirmed that Item No. 614 is used for marking or scoring grooves in boards to be used for siding.
Jon Neumeyer wrote us from Locust, N.C.; Larry Wines weighed in from Peninsula, Ohio; and Llwellyn France sent us a letter from Salamanca, N.Y.
France’s great-grandfather was a carpenter and left behind two large chests of tools, which France now has in his possession. France has used the siding marker and comments, “they work nice. Each of the teeth on the tool is rounded and sharp as a knife, so the marking is fine and very accurate.”
Take another look at Item No. 615 and let us know what you think it is. Write us at: Hazard a Guess, P.O. Box 38, Salem, OH 44460; or via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
