So as you can see in the attached diagram, this "toolbox key" is
located on the top row of the keyboard, second to the right. It
includes arm lines, wrist lines, and little hooks and curves to
construct fingers on handshapes...These are only for temporary symbols.
When a typist creates their own handshape one time from these pieces,
the handshape doesn't flop or rotate, so that is why I need to enter
the symbols "officially" with all 96 flops and rotations and palm
facings into SignBank, to make each symbol truly usable, but for
temporary needs, this toolbox worked well...continued next message...
