    What will they think of next?

    Went to the supply house last week, looked up and saw this on top of the tool display case behind the counter. http://www.milwaukeetool.com/webapp/...00137_192137_Y

    Guess I'm too old school. I'm waiting for them to develop a rechargable tool to get the younger guys off the cell phone and hand out of his pocket..............

    .........Wait they already have that, it's a cattle prod just did a search using online HR manual, no object found

    I can see it now...

    "Yo dude, like, this thing's outta power...does that mean we can go home now?"
    (The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon

    I bought one of these for the novelty of it....don't get to use it much, it's just plain too big for the cramped spaces in which i need to cut!

    Cool

    I think they had a rough-in plumber in mind when they made those. The HVAC supply houses figured they might be able to cash in on a few sales to a/c techs that think those things are too cool to pass up. As for me and my house, we will not spend the money on those kinds of things.

    I have one and never use it. It is definitely a novelty item. I did let a guy borrow it at a jobsite and the dumb@$$ stuck his finger in it to "check it" and it was not pretty. Broke the tool and messed his finger up, blood everywhere. Home Depot replaced it, no questions asked.

    I picked up one of these a few weeks back to try it out. Used it putting in baseboard convectors. Works real good in hard to reach areas. Lots faster than using the imps. It works best on the smaller pipe sizes, on 1 1/8 it likes to walk a little.
