    Mini Nana Gloat

    My 77 year old mother volunteers a lot of hours weekly with a hospice organization in FL where she lives. In her community people donate whole homes full of stuff to hospice, which in turn either donates it or sells the stuff in their store. Since my mom is there so much she has first dibs on anything that comes in.

    She sent me this box today. Can anyone tell me what the bottom right tool is and how to use it? The 2 wooden things, center bottom left look kind of old.........is one of them some kind of gauge? The other is a square....it says Stanley......

    I'll bet that came from the home of someone who made picture frames.
    Bottom right, I see a machinists drill press vice and some kind of hold down clamp (one with red handle).

    2 squares - the wood one is a tri square, the metal one is a machinists square
    1 sliding gauge - if it has 1 pin it is a marking gauge, 2 or more pins it is a mortise gauge
    4 frame clamps
    1 toggle clamp (red handle) typically used on jigs as a hold down
    2 plastic spring clamps

    Sorry Frank, there isn't a machinist's vise in there.

    Nice little package of handy tools.
