Ok, I might have an erection.
Where can I buy one ?
Edit: Thank you so much for the links!!
Can the size of the circle be varied? That’d be cool. And kinda important
That’s making an easy task pretty complicated
What does this do that a tape measure can’t? Or at least can’t do easily.
Being in construction myself, I can say with certainty that this tool was designed by someone who gets paid hourly..
Homie ever hear of drill soap?
Even if I carefully used this tool it would still be off.
I use cardboard, does the same job perfectly too!
I have something really similar to this. Used to copy angles when cutting tiles, bricks etc.
Y’all see the fear on that wall’s face?
Who needs something like this? You just reach out, put your hands where you want to measure, then back away with your arms rigid and zombie shamble to what you need cut. Lurch forward and place your hands and have a friend make tick marks around your hand. Literally works every time if you don’t mind being wildly off.
Set square mate. They are work wonders.
This thing is way over complicated for a job that traditional measuring tools can do just fine. It’s way too bouncy/flexible too.
Plumb, level (the old X & Y). That would have worked this as well in this circumstance.
Fancy tool, nice but not needed then.
6 knobs to wobble or come loose vs a fixed 90 degree framing square? This is massively overcomplicated and full of failure points. If even 1 of those knobs loosens, the measurement is lost. Having to change out the hole size for every different use seems cumbersome. This was designed by an engineer solving a problem that didn’t exist. Any tradesperson or tile setter could do this with a pencil and square, as demonstrated by 99.9% of bathroom tiles with holes cut in them. Having worked in trades and fabrication for 15 years, and being an accumulator of strange tools, I’m really stumped as to what this would actually be good for.
Or measure over and up to center….
Looks over complicated. Measure and throw an escutcheon on after. Cool dealio though
If you need that to lay out those holes, you have a bigger problem
pretty sure you could do all of this with just a tape measure
There is literally no point to this tool. It has done nothing you couldn’t do with a simpler measurement tool
Cool but I work construction and this is wasting too much time compared to just measuring tape
This looks over complicated, but admittedly interesting.
For a DIY at home, sure why not? As a tradespersons though, this would take way too long. Better to use a square, or even just a tape measure.
The messing around with this tool looks like it takes too long, and I’m not sure if it would lock up rigid enough to not move the slightest bit. Still an interesting novelty item though!
