ToolGirl's gifts for arty, crafty people [video]



Wouldn't want to be a Black and Wrecker, but I thought this was pretty cool.


I've tried that tool and didn't like it. The blade bound in the materials I tried to cut (leather, veneer, light gauge sheet metal) and it was difficult to control. The blade shape also gives the user a bit of a rough ride. No arguments on how pretty it is though.


I thought it looked cool, but after putting on my engineer hat, I keep getting the feeling that it might pull at the material being cut. My financial hat said it wasn't worth $30 to find out.

Besides, if God wanted man to cut things with a battery operated scissors, He wouldn't have invented the angle grinder.


Your site is perfect. Great work, I liked. Always, there are many things interesting. And I just email this to my friend.
