1. A hand tool apparatus for sizing and resizing tongue and groove panels and boards, the apparatus comprising:

  • a tool body providing a pair of opposing tool sides, each of the tool sides including a tool side surface;

    one said tool side surface supporting a pair of cutting tools separated by a cutting tool spacer positioning the cutting tools in spaced-apart positions for enabling a tongue of a panel to be inserted therein, and in parallel with the one said tool side surface, the cutting tools extending laterally relative to the tool side surface;

    the other said tool side surface supporting a further cutting tool, the further cutting tool extending laterally relative to the other tool side surface for contacting opposing surfaces of a panel groove, the lateral dispositions of the pair of cutting tools and the further cutting tool being in opposition and resting in parallel planes; and

    a clamping means enabled for applying clamping forces to the pair of cutting tools and the cutting tool spacer against the one tool side surface, and the further cutting tool against the other tool side surface so as to rigidize the apparatus.
