How to Summon Items using command blocks in 1.7.4
Step 1. Spawn in a command block
Do this by simply pressing the "T" button on your keyboard and type in the text: "/give @p 137" or "/give @p command_block"

Step 2. Place the command
Find in a suitable place for the command block hidden from the sight of players in your map.

Step 3. Enter the command in your command block
Simply right click on your command block and a GUI will show up. Copy paste the following command into your command block.
/summon Item ~ ~1 ~ {Item:{id:1,Count:1}}
Step 4. Why spawn in stone?
The next step is to edit your command to make the command block spawn in the item you want. The command in your command block summons 1 stone above it.

Editing "~ ~1 ~" edits where the command block will summon the item. The tilde means directional, removing the tildes will spawn the item in the entered coordinate.
Example: Replacing ~ ~1 ~ to 100 64 100 will spawn the item in at the coordinates x=100 y=64 and z=100.

Editing the feilds of "{Item:{Id:1,Count:1}}

The numerical id of stone is "1" so when you replace 1 with 276 the command block will spawn in a Diamond Sword because the numerical id of Diamond Sword is equivalent to "276"

The quantity of the number of items is 1 because the variable "Count" is equal to 1. Replacing 1 with 5 will make the command block spawn in 5 items stacked together.

Step 5. Power the command block
Using any type of redstone circuit to power the command block is the final step to spawn in the

Step 6. Experiment!

Dude, the title is misleading, you're not doing /summon, you're doing /give, 2 different commands >:(

Yes it does summon the item, if you alter the coordinates it will spawn in those coordinates. Useful for keeping spawn chunk loaders full of items automatically (I just did that and it works beautifully).
