    I think it is super cool and ultra precise for joinery cuts. I have been tempted to buy one before but have not done so. I think that it is really innovative but I am not sure I would use it enough to justify — who knows, maybe I would find a need if I had one. Love watching the videos on BCTW.

    I think that if you are going to spend the money on that, you may as well get a Domnino and save yourself some time, or just get a dovetail jig for a router. If I understand it right, it is nothing more than a helping hand to make different ind of joints anyway. You still have to do the work. Would it really make doing joints that much easier?

    I think on smaller scale projects is where it really shines. Some of the stuff people have made with these things are super intricate and I think that some power tools would be too much for the material.

    Well all I had to do is look at the guys face getting ready to assemble the product, to know it’s not for me.

    Any videos of it in action?

    Bridge City makes some pretty BA tools but this joint maker seems a bit excessive. I can’t imagine ever needing this level of precision.

    That assembly pictures makes me not want one. Worse than when the wife goes to Ikea. I might buy one used and already assembled.

    Not in my league either. I would never get my money’s worth out of it.

    Nice video’s dirty. From the video, it is a crazy cool tool. But I think that it is way more than I will ever need for anything. Maybe in a few years.

    And what is funny is that I think that is someone from the company!

    I definitely agree- the assembly is a project in and of itself!! Though those videos of it in action are impressive, it is definitely a niche tool moreso than some of their other tools… Still, it is a very interesting tool to say the least!

    Wonder how often the blade needs to be replaced, and how much it costs?

    This tool seems to be more of a toy that a retired guy nees to have to fill his time with ,,,(RedWood??) And if you need to wonder about the blade and cost maybe it’s not for you?
