not only is it STEEL
he is using it to crosscut
against the fence
with no miter guide attached board
great way to have the piece
get twisted and wood kickback
and steel in the blade

but hey
it has free shipping !

maybe those guys that rip freehand
on toy saws can get millions
since it doesn’t have quick stop technology

I suspect it is a joke! How could anyone in this day and age even THINK about selling that thing… Can you say “lawsuit”?

I checked it out a minute ago and “This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available”. Someone or “SMARTS” got to him/her. My push stick have all kinds of nick, gouges and missing areas. Can’t imagine what the result would be on this one. YES I COULD AND IT”S NOT A PRETTY PICTURE. Good find Len.

The funny thing is this looks EXACTLY LIKE THE TOOL I BOUGHT TO UNCLOG MY GARBAGE DISPOSER – and it didn’t cost $16. Do you think this guy thought he could repurpose it and make some cash?

Jim, I don’t know if you were able to see the listing where he claimed it was only 1/4” thick and is great for cutting those thin strips between the fence and the blade !!
Maybe someone contacted Ebay and showed them the light as to what this guy was selling and the claims he was making , and they made him shut down before they were also involved in a lawsuit.

Lol’g hard at sandwiching a metal tool between the blade and fence. Sounds like something I’d do.
