I know Woodpecker make some excellent pieces of kit but whose going to pay $600 for one of these?

I've got an original Stanley that I inherited and a more modern much cheaper UK Joint Genie, which I've used on the odd occasions but at that price your entering Domino territory.

Bonkers - and its made to order for a limited time with delivery not until Feb 2017 - good luck getting spares if you lose a bit! One for the collectors I think :eusa-whistle:

It looks like an impressive bit of kit, but $600???? Madness...

Looked at this yesterday at AxHQ, but it will probably only be available in imperial. The Dowelmax system is spot on for accuracy, half as spendy and it's got metric bushes - Rob
