Introduction The Patriot Woodworker community is proud to bring to you the MWTCA "What's It" department of images related to hand tools and implements. If you are not familiar with the MWTCA "What's It", please see the current page at https://mwtca.org/whats-its/ We are in cooperation with MWTCA to bring this fun event to you, on a quarterly basis as it is presented by MWTCA quarterly in their publication "The Gristmill". We contacted MWTCA and asked them if we could perpetuate the "What's It" here in our woodworking community in order to bring more awareness and appreciation in the area of hand tools and implements. How it works We will post the "What's It" as they become available through the MWTCA, usually on a monthly basis here in our community in the What's It Forum. Your job is to research the content of the image and tell us what it is, and prove your answer by references and sources and or patents. Answers will be submitted to the Mid West Tool Collectors Association for verification and approval or rejection. The grand prize See the current months "What's It" Runner up prize A one year (calendar year) membership to MWTCA and all of their benefits and publications. A 25 dollar value sponsored by The Patriot Woodworker. Rules This project is open to members of The Patriot Woodworker community only. Sorry, but only members who live in the United States can participate. (Please don't be offended, out of country memberships cost more than our budget allows) All (U.S.A.) members can participate, including our forum hosts and administrators. If an accurate answer cannot be arrived at by the end of the current calendar month's project is posted, a random drawing will be held to include anyone who participated in that months "What's It". One winner will be chosen to receive a calendar year membership to MWTCA and all of it's wonderful benefits of membership. Participants are only eligible to obtain one membership per year.

Current "What's It" will be closed after an answer has been verified or rejected by the MWTCA. The MWTCA only accepts a verified source to support your answer, so one should be submitted with your answer, such as a patent, catalog entry, tool book reference, or a respectable website on the subject. Do not let these requirements prevent you from having fun and submitting educated answers on the subject without verification, we can worry about references later. All answers are welcome, as well as healthy debates regarding "What's It".
