Here is a collection of objects found in my garage that constitute tools of the trade or more loosely interpreted, tools of the hobby.

All but two of the items in this picture have something in common. Two of the objects do not belong. Can you identify them.

Nikon D100, Sigma 28-70mm f2.8 lens, Nikon SB-800 flash bounced off ceiling.

I'll bet it's the 1/4-20 tap and the hex adapter.

I would not say they do not belong as many a time I have had to drill and tap out a hole in one of my woodworking machines.
Nice clean table saw blade not a hint of tar buildup.

Interesting shot, Cal. All but the jig and recip saw blades, rotate. I'll see if I can put together something for this challenge. I've been a bit pressed for time lately, but things may be settling down a bit (sort of time challenged, as it were) .

Cal,

I agree with VT, the two saw blades require a recpirocating thingamajig to use them.

Everything else rotates.

Nice set up for showing off the equipment/tools.

Aloha

Two different answers for the two odd items have been given and both are valid. The answer I was looking for was the first All are woodworking tools except the tap (center front) and the socket (right end). Although the tap could be used to repair threads in a woodworking tool, the tap is a metal working tool. The socket is designed to manipulate bolts and nuts typically used in metal work but there could be wood applications, too.

Selvin's and VT's observation had never occurred to me but is probably the more accurate statement. I've never seen one of those blades rotate.

Regarding the comment on how clean the table saw blade looks, it should be clean. It's never been used. I thought about using one of my older blades for the photo but it would have been ugly!

Thanks, all.

Cal
