Designed by MONTY KENNEDY Saves The Day When A Line Starts Astray!
A tool that isn't often used - until it is needed - and then it is the most necessary checkering tool you can own! Its main pur- pose is to straighten out checkering lines which have gone astray and to make layout and other lines really straight. There isn't a checkerer alive, pro or rank novice, who, at one time or another, hasn't had a line suddenly head for left field…either due to the wood's grain, a wood density change, or a false move. Straightening out such a line - without a Jointer Tool - could easily drive you right up the wall!
Anyone who has checkered will instantly recognize the great value of this tool. The beginner (and pro, too!) should read Monty Kennedy's Checkering and Carving of Gunstocks and Bob Sconce's fine checkering articles in Gunsmith Kinks® and then include a Jointer with his checkering assortment.
