    That, my friend is cool and it should become a hit, if it gets advertised correctly. Could be my next wood working tool....
    Great Link for a Construction Owner/Tradesmen, and just say Garager sent you....

      Wait to you see the price. Remember it's from Bridge City Tools, and their stuff is not cheap, NONE of it. The price on this tool unassembled is over $1200.00

        No electricity. No batteries. Silent cuts!!! Wow...it's one of the coolest things I've ever seen. Yeah...it's pricey. It makes me think though that it's something that can be incredibly useful for a trim carpenter. Imagine taking that out to a customer site. No noisy saw, no sawdust flying everywhere. From the looks of it, there's lots less waste as you can get your hands up close and cut real fine pieces.
        I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

          I hope for all the R & D that went into that it's enough of a success to get good payback. Sadly too many good things never make it in the market place or some GREEDY big old HOG buys it cheap and makes huge profits while later totally crapping up what started out great. Let's hope this one works out the way it should.

            I don't think you're going to trim a window or install crown molding with that.
            It's more of a tool for someone who like to tinker or make jewelry boxes and such...

              I agree! While it's a neat concept and i'm sure it works great, that thing scares the crap out of me!!! That big 'ol long razor sharp blade sitting there just waiting for one goof! LOL Guess i'm just to used to my big 'ol Jet TS spinning a razor sharp 80 tooth blade!! LOL

                Although it looks wonderful and would be nice to have around, I don't see it replacing tools in my shop. For a hobbiest that is doing small projects it would probably work alright. But how do you cut up a sheet of plywood or rip up some solid would to size? Personaly I want one but just cannot part with the $1400 to buy a tool that would get limited use. The other thing is the plastic/nylon gears. you would think for that kind of money they would have used steel. I still drool every time I watch the video though

                  Now that would be great for model shipbuilders, except the price.

                  In a year or two we should see similar, less expensive, units from Asia.
