I have this particular tool that I have been working with almost every day for about 11 years now. Its probably just as good as anybody else’s so that’s why I’ve decided to keep it rather than trade it in for a new one and its probably too old to return to it’s manufacturer.

See the problem is…For no apparent reason it can be going along working just fine then all of a sudden it starts whining and strange rumbling noises come from it. I can try my best to work with it but to no avail. If I scream or curse at it, it stops working all together for a day or so but then starts up better than ever and works like a charm for a while again.

I think it may have something to do with how I feed it. When I feed it well it works a little better. Another odd thing is no matter how much I polish it, It still seems dull at times and rust still breaks through. It’s also a bit cumbersome and takes up a lot of room, especially with all the attachments and accessories. Anyway, Even tho its not always the sharpest tool in the shed and it may even have a few screws loose, I’ve decided to keep it regardless of the flaws as I think it is one of a kind and may become more valuable someday :)

hahahaha that is TOOOOO funny.

Well, although I haven’t had direct experience with that model number, I have been pleased, overall, with that brand.

Just a little patience, and a lot of tender loving care and they usually work like a charm!!
If not… trade it in for a version.. hahaa

I am sure that the warrenty has long ago expired on this much OLDER model than your self. That said: may I point out that even those OLD depreciated models with out all the bells and whistles so are like a good pair of shoes, hard to come by, and hard to get rid of when their useful life is over.

Besides aren’t the new models high maintenance?

Lets be honest you really don’t have time to train in a much younger and newer model ways.

Besides us old antiques need a place to sit around and collect dust anyways.

We make good conservation pieces.

It is so nice to see such a loving and fun relationship.

Congrads to you and Mr Zuki you both are good and fun people.

Great review. It’s definetly not my kind of tool, but when I look in the mirror I see something like that. With the hat I can’t tell if your model has hair, but my refelection is showing a lot of skin.

I sure hope a whole bunch of wives don’t get started on this. I’ve gotta admit, it’s pretty funny, though. As long as it’s somebody else. LOL

Great review Mrs. Zuki. Older tools are high maintenance.

That is too funny. Mr. Angle is wise in his advice to keep guard so that this practice does not spread. Fortunately, the Mrs. has developed an addiction to GardenTenders and spends most of her computer time there.

They don’t make tools like they use to. Better keep this one!
