    I can neither confirm nor deny that it is the new (ultra top secret) Tele-Point International Skew Thicknesser
    There must be a mole in the organisation for this to have gotten out.
    Heads will roll!

    Seriously, this isn't mine, thank goodness.
    Tele Point isn't that big - I'm wondering whose it is.
    I'll ask around at the next community dinner.

    Happy bidding everyone.

    Surely it's a joke? I'll wait for Dereks review before I consider this one.

    leaving aside questions about the quality of the steel and hence how well it could hold an edge, it's quite a logical tool.

    A hatchet in a skilled hand is the fastest way known to scribe a panel to fit an uneven wall.
    the plane would allow you to take off the last smidgen

    Probably introduced early in the stages of the slide down the loss of trade skills to power tools. A competent tradesman wouldn't need the plane thingy, a sharp tomahawk would have been just fine. Now totally replaced my a staple gun and a power planer.....or liquid nails and no more gaps

    What worries me about the tool is how well its attached to the handle.. No wedges, it looks like an apprentices head injury waiting to happen.

    It has to be a joke. Did you read some of the blurb? Makes my knees buckle at the thought of it.

    Each of our belt pucks contains seven cups, yielding an effective pull strength in excess of 84 pounds per puck. A total of six pucks gives 42 magnets in cups, with a tool-holding capacity of just over 500 pounds.

    You'd end up stuck to the lathe

    Dad bought one in the early 60s branded Atlas.
    Was worn out then,only good for Al or brass.
    Certainly a good way to hold and manually rotate the blades whilst hand filing.
    Probably about all its up for now.
