'What Is It?' Contest!
We'll post a different picture every two months - send us an email with your
guess and we'll draw from all of the answers for an awesome prize!


Contest 1 answer is: Part of the fence from a 1930's Stanley #358 miter box (look
toward the left side of the fence in the picture).
Kudos to David N., who had a eureka moment when sitting in front of the miter box at WIA
a couple months ago, and utilized his iPad to make the connection! Great use of
technology, David!
