Default Re: My new toy: prepare to drool!

Aw Eli, you're so sweet! Yes, it's a jewel - I keep going into my garage-I-mean-shop to use it. I'm not even building anything right now. It's just so nice to touch, hold, and use!

And I'm betting it'll be the last really expensive tool I'll buy for a long time. It was quite an extravagance! On the other hand (rationalization coming...), when you prorate it over my woodworking lifespan, it's (hopefully) pretty cheap!

Looks nice. How long does the battery last between chargings? I assume it must be battery, 'cause I don't see a cord on it.

Oh wait. That's not one of those infernal hand tools that you actually have to push by yourself, is it? How archaic. Well, at least it looks pretty. I guess I could even have one of those sitting on my office shelf for display.

I'm not sure of the power source on this one, Rick, but it seems to push itself. At least, that's how it feels.

You wouldn't believe the blade on this thing - it's about 1/4" thick, but only about 3/4" of usable (sharpenable) surface. That'll probably last 200 years, but still.
