    Stupidity continues on the rise meanwhile

    Another "Wonder Tool" that is demonstrated at exhibitions by demonstrators who make it look soooooooo easy to use (but have been practicing for weeks before hand). Punters buy it by the thousand, tempted by the 'handy laser craft knife' that they throw in free if you buy it today. Then they get it home, try to use it once, and throw it in the back of the 'don't know' drawer. (Along with all the other Wonder Tools they have brought at previous exhibitions.)

    I once brought a little 'cappochino whisk'. (Spelt that wrong :oops:) that made really great looking cappo's and creamy looking chocolate drinks. A little battery operated whisk that fitted inside a cup perfectly, and distributed the entire contents of said cup in a nice even ring round the kitchen walls and all over my shirt within microseconds of being turned on !!!!

    Isn't the laser guide line redundant? I typically follow the PRINTED lines on the card as a guide. ;)

    That's the same thing I thought.
    This is pretty much a waste of money.
    For the same amount of money, you could buy a decent model!:wink:

    You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have scissors with frickin' laser beams attached to their handles!

    Usually if you see something like those scissors and get hooked you get them home and the instructions say you have to make sure they are held steady in an upright and perpandicular orientation to the item being cut while hanging upsided down from your roof rafters on the third Thursday after the gibbous moon. Failure to follow these instructions will void the warranty and the 100% ironclad money back guarantee (not including the shipping and handling charge, which is usually twice what the thing was worth anyway.):roll:

    Anybody want to buy some "Laser cut" frames??? ;). I can do them for reeeeeaaaaal cheap!!! :grin: :grin:

    Looking at the website, it's the first laser i've seen that deflects and runs parallel to paper. Wouldn't it give you just a spot on the paper?

    In deep confusion,
    Andreas

    No, it is similar to the laser levels for carpenters. The laser is sent through a cylindrical lens that convertes the spot into a line, which if you were to fill the air with smoke you would see a "sheet" of laser light perpendicular to the surface.
