Topic tags/keywords: humor saw hand laser

yup – cause the laser keeps it straight and inline, better than a magnetic hold down:

personally, I’m going to hold off on this purchase, and wait for the next model with a riving knife and prawls to come out

I was wondering how this wonderful laser guided saw went through so many approvals to get placed on the store shelves? I must be misssing something…

not sure about a coping saw, but I’ve seen the beta tester for a phillips screwdriver version – it’ll help you center it in the screw head – dead center – everytime!

ellen – that depends on how your day is going

Charlie – you’re welcome, you cracked me up…

Where’s the power cord? How do you plug it in??

If it ain’t got no cord and can’t be wired for 220V it ain’t a Real Man’s (or Woman’s) Power Tool!

This has excited the gray matter! I am already inventing the laser guided pencil and the laser guided knowledge modifier (eraser). Does anyone know how to get a patent?
