Saw this in the latest F&C and thought you would all like to rush out & buy the latest offering from Spear & Jackson Didn't know whether to post in hand or power tools so I stuck it in General.

Next thing you know they will be making them with built in fans to blow the sawdust away ::)

WTF?! Has someone got their calendar wrong and thinks it's April? God help us; John Spear and Samuel Jackson must be spinning in their graves.

A new age in bodge work has dawned...... You might saw to the line, but how do you make sure it's square? I know, guys, lets build in a gyroscope! ::)

And this from what was at one time one of the world's greatest saw makers. Oh the shame, the shame........

Interestingly the pic in F&C shows the user holding the saw with all four fingers around the grip, if they had been taught to put their index finger along th eside of the handle then they probably would not need the lazer ;)
