If you revers 2 of the pins on Mr. Timbucks tool it makes a jim dandy device for finding the center of a tapered barrel. (no pun intended)
Thank you Mr. Timbuck

Hey Beau, are you laughing because Timbuck's tool gets longer when you pull on it? Cause I wouldn't mind an easy way to find my center line. Easier than measuring and saying, ok, it's 2 and 3/32. Half of that is, um, wait, wut. ;)

cutting a barrel channel for tapered barrels is one of horrible tortures known to man. Even worse for a swamped one. A man needs all the help he can get.

THAT.............is simply what the tool should be called. Nothing Else.

200 years from now, the Lutherie history books will simply refer to it as "Timbucks Tool"
