Re: Tool Extraordenaire

This is fabulous... I suppose depends on how rugged and precise these tools and jigs are... can't rip very wide pieces though.

More junk, probably Chinese thought up by Americans who don't know a good tool from squat or figure they can sell anything. What a waste of even more plastic.

Re: Tool Extraordenaire

Wow, I'm impressed. Very clever but seems to be light duty.
I saw a price - $315? Not sure if this is right.

Re: Tool Extraordenaire

Nifty gadget.....now if only this had been invented back when things were made to last!

Imagine a tinkerer mating this with a 3D printer head and a small CAM/CNC setup. Spare parts? Custom made parts? Anywhere, anytime. No more love affairs with DHL, customs, and the joy of trying to track down the left hand square thread widget off a 1973 gonkulator.

Re: Tool Extraordenaire

It is really cool but does look somewhat light duty. I've become pretty attached to the Milwaukee M12 Fuel tools. Unbelievable power for such small drills and saws.

Re: Tool Extraordenaire

Looks like a great tool to have on a cruising boat. Don't need a heavy duty work all day set of tools, just something to do small repairs and fabrication. Busted a tall fiddle on the passage to the Marquesas when the boat lurched with the pressure cooker sitting on the counter. Tried glueing it back together but didn't have epoxy, couldn't get a clamp on it so wood glue wouldn't work. Luckily when we got to the Marquesas, a boat had an el cheapo table saw and an inverter. Used the table saw to rip the piece to size, cut off to length, and rabbet the edge to inset the piece on the cabinet and finished with a router. The replacement was actually better than the original. If this tool combo had been available would have done all but the router work with it.

FWIW, have you seen the multiple battery tool sets from Milwaukee. They come one of everything from a drill, circular and saber saw, light, and a few other nice to have tools all for over a boat unit. The above 'magic box' has more varied tools and costs way less.

I see a really handy assortment of tools, not quality, but good enough for certain things. Improve the quality of the plastics and the electrics and they may really be worthwhile.

You can tell the quality by a video Seamonkey?

It looks like it uses up as much room as three cases of beer. Priorities... Priorities... Life is about choices.

The clicking and the sound from the motors.....I've got a lot of cheap tools and a lot of good ones. You can really hear the difference.
