Topic tags/keywords: question resource

Question from a novice, Please. Do any of you LJ’s find any utility from using the Odd-Jobs-Tool and/or the Point-to-Point layout tools available from Garret Wade or Rockler in your craftsmanship? If so performing which tasks?? I believe the PTP is not suppose to be accurate enough for dovetail layouts. What say ye?

The odd jobs tool makes for a nice paper weight.

A set of dividers will serve you well, as opposed to the point to point
IMHO.

I have the odd job and find it to be pretty worthless. I have yet to figure in what circumstance it would be useable.
