Hamanists? Humanists who do not read spam?

Often you have posed the question of what kinds of tools are appropriate
to what kinds of work we may be engaged in. And it is that question that
bounced from the page when I read the following passage from Bruce Rogers
_The Centaur Types_ (Chicago 1949 rpt. Purdue University Press, West
Lafayette, Indiana, 1996) p. 6

These designs [...] were put into the hands of John Cumming of Worchester
for the cutting of the punches. Cumming was the best punch cutter of his
day. He was a retired athlete and oarsman, with great clumsy-looking
hands; but the way he could handle a minute graving tool was a marvel. He
was also a marvellous potato masher, as I discovered when I once lunched
at his home. I suppose he enjoyed the relaxation of wielding a larger and
freer implement than the graver.

Is there an equivalent to potato mashing in the world of humanities
