Amazing new tool coming soon
« on: December 09, 2012, 05:14 PM »
I've been testing a new tool out for one of the big tool companies for about two months now . I've not been allowed to write anything online about it but from this Wednesday I can reveal what it is and who makes it. I've been dying to post about it but couldn't as there is an embargo on it that I've had to sign up to.

On Wednesday I will post details of this new tool but feel free to guess what it is in the meantime.

By the way its not festool.

is it a carpentry tool , tiling,demo work, etc etc

Fortunately, she doesn't even tread foot in the shop (garage)!

I have to have it.  Now, before I even know what it is.  That is...unless it's yellow.  I don't want any yellow tools.

I'm just lucky to get chosen I guess. I'm a member of another forum in the UK and they contacted me through that. They were looking for tradesman to test this new tool.

I honestly can't give any details until Wednesday, for all I know someone else here is testing it too.

Taken long enough!!! 

I just blanked it out of my mind or it would of wound me up not knowing wa it was.

  Knowing what the brand is though doesn't give me much confidence so... [popcorn] [popcorn]

The answer is...

A new robot that does high quality woodwork, does not curse or swear, wipes its feet as it comes in, engages in interesting and polite conversation, does not look at the shapely figure of Mrs Miggens, initiates and participates in numerous threads here on the FOG and....does not spend any of its income on new tools!

No, it was supposed to be a NEW thing - Paul Marcel already exists.

How the heck can we possibly guess what it could be?  No clues whatsoever.  It's impossible. [crying]


I'll take a stab at it regardless.  A dedicated hand held power dovetailer.  Makes multiple dovetails simultaneously with multiple cutters mounted in line.  Just my imagination going wild.
