    Default Worst taping tool ever?


    I wouldn't even use this if they paid me $75 to try it.
    This is bloody awful and that blade looks dangerous. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yGoGd7VXdg

    Why do they think I would use a tool where I get my hands covered in muck or sliced fingers on that exposed blade?
    It would seem that is a pointless tool for anything other than VERY low level upright internals!

    It's cool to wear retro trainers, it has never been cooler to cruise around in a mk2 Escort so why are you all against using tools designed in 1963

    Default ah yes a variation of the evil Banjo

    I bought a banjo once. I hated it. i tried for a whole job to make it work, now i realize that if I had known someone who already was familiar with it i might have stuck with it for months, SO i was really lucky.

    When i saw the title of this thread i was all ready to nominate the Banjo taper, so i was in no way surprised to see it the only contestant.

    But in the interest of prolonging the discussion, I would like to nominate the combination mud-pan/tape-roll holder

    Haha! Does this contraption pick up digital TV signals? Or is it for hooking onto the side of a horses saddle?

    Default its for a belt. which i don't wear...

    but its real genius is this: if you do come to trust it, it allows mudpans to fall from heights previously impossible and since the only reason to ever put a mud pan into such a holder is that you need your hands for something else, you will never catch it when it decides to fall out
    I think i have bought 2 over the years, and have always sold it to the first interested co worker with a smirk and a discount on the original price.

    Gee you guys are brutal.

    I hate to think of what the frustration I'm causing with proto deliveries is doing for my reputation...

    If my robotics don't perform as I claim, you're going to eat me alive!!!!

    But then, I guess I would deserve it.

    Hey, Rick , are you responsible for that demo video? Holy christ man you need shot! Why not just buy a bazooka? I know theres a major price difference but avoiding humiliation alone is well worth the extra $1000.
    And what was the 2nd guy doing? Surely he wasnt going to go round the full job with foot-long scraps of paper tape?
    Maybe Bin Laden has a point about the States.......

    No that's not one of mine. I just have an appreciation for anyone that tries anything new. The toughest part of the whole thing is removing yourself from the emotions to determine whether or not something is good.

    The problm we're having is getting good parts from our vendors and getting the samples I promised out to our UK brothers.
