The model CARWCIII3060C76 is already the "Bluefin Special"; could be confusing.

Little pocket scribe-awl with a hardened replaceable point that has a tapered end and barrel so you can see what you are needing to see.

This is a Craftsman No. 9-4051 -- but I am sure it is made by Starrett.

Super high quality in opearation, fit, checkering, feel, and finish.

Mine is over 30 years old.

It is used dozens of times a day to install or remove springs, pry up things, remove bearing shields, and a whole lot more. 

I have various picks, dental picks, machinists picks, and more -- but this little guy is worth his weight in gold.

I've had this pick for over 25 years.  It was my grandfather's and I got it and some other tools when he passed.  He was a body and fender guy back when body filler was lead.  In his pastime he was a machinist.  He as heavily into RC planes and boats in the 60's and 70's even holding the state record for fastest RC boat clocked at 94 mph in the late 60's.  The pick measures 8 1/2" now but was longer but due to breakage and sharpenings it's a little smaller.  Useful for May reel projects like lining up screw holes and moving small parts around.  I don't know much and Moody Machine in Rhode Island.  Bill
What's the date today?

Nice score Randy, a whole different ballgame if he'd taken it out of the box

Agreed, but which version do most anglers prefer...H or HC?  Is the AR switch necessary these days?

We just ordered 3 SS hinges and 2 SS latches for our igloo.  Went through two sets of plastic ones in 5 years.  37 bucks and they should be here Monday.  Could have bought another 309 for 37 bucks. 8)
