Stanley #1 Odd-Job

stanley_oddjob.jpgAccording to Garret Wade, there used to be a saying, "All you needed was a #1 Odd Job, a hammer and a saw, and you could build anything." And from the looks of this old time layout tool, it's probably correct. This multi-tool has a lot going for it; an inside miter, a try square, an arc scribing tool, a t-square, a depth marking scribe, and more. It's made of brass and steel and has very cool look to it.

The Odd-Job comes with a 6" ruler and costs $35 (now on sale for $27). If you want it with a 12" ruler, it'll set you back $45 (sale price $36). Or you can just pick up the 12" ruler in addition to the tool for $13.

They were apparently manufactured from the late 1880's to the early 1930's. It all makes you wonder why they fell out of style.
