    I have seen the demo, guy used a hardwood door, but with the force he hit it with i image it would smash a PREMDOR or similar to matchsticks :)

    I've seen them demo'd and had a go. They are very good.

    I'll stick with my lammy trimmer and sharp chisel for now though.

    Hi Cosworth,

    saw a guy demo these last year at alexandra palace, a topic was posted back then and myself & lamello replyed if i remember rightly but he has disapeared... anyway;-)

    yes i had a go at the show and i personally thought they were rubbish. the guy demo'd it ended up with a 5mm gap at the end of the hinge as he was hitting it with a huge hammer.

    i think i will stick to my nice sharp chisels;-)

    Hang a door in 6 minutes what an idiot, it looks utter shat. Like any tool it looks good when it's sharp

    A good chippie doesn't need a gadget to help with the utter basics.

    Fair enough it appears to work on a bit of softwood on the video but I'd like to see them try it on a veneered walnut doors

    yea and can you use it on linings as well? and if so, what about MDF?

    I'm sure all my chppies will stick to a router, hinge jig and a set of sharp marples.
