Roger,

You should be banned from tempting us like this. Bridge City should be ashamed of themselves to continue putting out this sort of product. At the very least, they should start a 12 step program for those of us that watch (or covet) these kinds of things. :sdrool:

See you Saturday.

Oh man. Thanks for posting this, Roger. I don't understand how I didn't know about it - I was on their web site today!

That's so deeply cool! I wonder if you could just put a point in one of the bearings and use it like that center scribe that you just bought?

Should we take bets on the price? I'm guessing $350...

Okay - I just looked. It's $244 for someone like me... Almost cheap!

It's the new double-saddle square that I love!

hmm, $194.50 or $244.50 (depending if you're a BCTW member)

.....and that's the 50% deposit.

Holy smokes! That is the 50% deposit. So even my generous estimation of the cost was low. Yikes!

I'll wait 10 years for it to come out on ebay...

Of course, with Bridge City Tools, it'll cost even more then...
