Hi all... been absent for a while but plan to get more active.

I just bought the contents of a small hobby shop geared for guitars and have been doing an inventory - Yeah, i know, backwards - but i think i did OK.

So there's a few things that i have no idea what they might be, so i thought i'd post them here to see if anyone could ID.

This is the first... is it even related to to a guitar?
that black lever under that rubber "foot" forces that rubber foot in and out like it clamps to something.
The black lever at the base of the silver rod allows for adjustment of the rod.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

Rob

and here's mystery tool #2

Some type of clamp... maybe for saddle and nut carving?

Yes the second one is for binding and is quite handy. THe first is just some sort of hold down.

The second one I think is to attach plastic purfing to plastic binding with acetone...

The top looks like a clamp that you would use by drilling a hole the size of the threaded bolt into you work bench, insert with a washer on top of the bench and underneath the bench, tighten the eye on the bolt and then it clamps downward to your bench instead of needing an oversized super deep clamp to accomplish the same thing. Useful for all kinds of things I would imagine.

Fingerstyle.... that sounds likely! The loop on the end had me scratching my head, but maybe he lost the nut. Gonna search on that... Thnx!

Found it on Amazon... https://www.amazon.com/Quick-Drill-Pres ... B0033AYY2O

That first one does what Joey said, but I’m pretty sure it is designed for a drill press table as a work hold down.

Yup. Cam clamp for a drill press. You can use it like a bench dog clamp, as well.
