This is (whatever-it-is) the most under-used tool in my shop.

In fact, I cannot remember the last time I used it.

Oh, Wait !

I never HAVE actually used it.

That could be why.

But, I am positive it does a AAA-Bang-up job on whatever-the-hell it is supposed to do.

I knew old-man Critt himself, and nothing he did was half-ass or half-way.

I wonder why I have never seen this tool reviewed or mentioned on LumberJocks?

I’ll bet those guys know this is a rare set-up and are keeping quiet about it

But, I am a nicer guy than that and I like to share my successes with tools

I have not messed with it very much.

Took me forever to find the electrical cord.

Luckily I have 3-phase so I could run it.

I did not have the nerve to put a finger in it

But I DID stick a hot-dog in it…..and it stopped RIGHT NOW !!!!

But, that was a $100 try-out, so definitely not doing that again!

So, anyways, guys, get on to E-bay and buy one of these.

They surely will not be cheap

But well worth anything you pay for it……up to…. and including…. 1 dollar.

Bruce, you really are a funny guy, you should have a show somewhere.
So why did you buy this thing anyway and why do you encourage me to also buy one?

You really should try it and write a serious review

NO, Bert….. you got it back-ass-wards

I sent you the info so that YOU could buy it.

There is only one up for sale, and, knowing you would want it…...I did not want to be selfish.

Also, I do not think anyone (excepting Mr Critt of course) could write a serious review on this.

Bruce it might be of comfort for you to know that If I owned it I would never use it either. LOL Have fun Alistair

Now that I look at it again, I can see what the concept is wonder how well it works?

You can make your own, I haven’t made or used these, but Brian Grella uses them in many of his videos.

Now I made myself look very dumb and foolish.

Should have checked around a little more before I put my size 11 in my mouth.

I just threw in a bid on this just now.

NOW I have to have…......bondogaposis

At least there seems to be directions on using it.

I think I’ve got tools that don’t have any instructions!!!
