I found a Stanley tool someone had given me. It is about three inches long,
and 3/4" in diameter, with a round knurled surface. On one end, there is a
1/8" or so rod projecting. On the other, there is a round hole. When you
press the 1/8" rod on one end, a 3/32 to 1/16" rod comes out the other end
the length of the opposite end. It looks like a ballpoint pen but without
the writing end sticking out. The rod is solid through the body. It looks
like if you were to put it over a finishing nail, you would hit the top end,
and it would countersink the other end, and insure that one could not miss.
Is that what it is?
"...the man who really counts in the world is the doer, not the mere
critic-the man who actually does the work, even if roughly and imperfectly,
Like the second tool on this page

Or down below- "Self-Centering Screw Hole Punch "
BTW- what language is that translated? from?
The nail set is "Designed to eschew marring natalie wood for the time
The screw hole punch is "Self-centering feature film idealistic for
the sake of hinges & catches"
It can be used on all finishing nails. On small headed ones, the blunt
end will drive the head below the trim surface and make a pocket in the
wood around the small head which will accept the putty.
On larger headed finishing nails, it just drives the head below the trim
surface and the big head hole allows for putty.
LOL. Yes, finding tools is like Christmas, but I mean finding tools
that others had lost. Most of my found tools where laying on the road
and I stopped to pick them up. If a tool is accidentally left by
someone I can call, I always call them to let them know. I know how
much it sucks to loose a tool. I've found tools I lost for over ten
years in equipment that I serviced again. Funny how many of us can look
at two identical but worn tools and know which one is ours.
It's true when they say "A man can never have too many tools".
Blunt end, and looks like it would handle larger finishing nails. Now I
want to go get a smaller one for smaller nails. But then I bought a
pneumatic t nailer, and I don't have to use finishing nails on baseboards
But I DO need another tool.
