    Ill be betting that @Pete999@Pete999 and @Specialist@Specialist have one each by the Close of day Friday! Of course then Pete will sell it on the forum two weeks later and berate it for being useless and Specialist won't agree because it's shiny.
    But as I've said before - "I could be wrong"!

    I do like these time saving devices, save 10 seconds here, save 7 seconds there and then then they go and sit in the toilet for 25 minutes.
    Now I only take about 30 seconds on the toilet, 30 more for washing my hands (properly) so Ive save 24 minutes - I can then take my time with my padsaw and my measuring and levelling! AND I'VE SAVED £200

    What a pointless invention if you can't cut a box in plasterboard neatly and at a good pace then you deserve to get ripped off for 200 notes.
    Buying one of these is like Teresa May buying a rape alarm.

    You need to get more 'down' with the kids Tel, @Pete999@Pete999 has and is looking to start up a sparky school to help all the boil in the bags - that's down with the kids (and adult learners!)

    Absolutely pointless.

    If you can't cut a box square and level you need more practice.

    If you need to save a matter of seconds you must be doing a lot of plasterboard cuts.
    If you are doing lots it must be a large new install.
    If it's a large new install you should have persuaded the joiner to cut you a load of noggins to mount metal boxes on sat 5mm proud of the stud so the boarder has to cut your boxes in for you.

    I suppose that if cutting backbox holes in plasterboard was a major part of your business, it might just be worth it. I might just swerve past this one and head for some other shiny tool.

    I'm with HandySpark, I don't see it having much appeal at 200 quid unless you're doing lots of backboxes in dry wall every day.

    ...Did you not see her on PMQ,the other week,with the puppies out? Sweet ;)

    Anywho...i have been asked to help a pal,cut a meter square window out,in the vault of what was a bank.

    It is 18" thick,and may yet have HSS jumble,inbetween the re-bar...a rock-hammer hidden in a Bible,may be insufficient :)

    Also, seeing as plasterboard is abrasive, they will have to sell replacement blades too, which are probably nearly half the cost of the tool alone!!

    I took one of those 85mm blades pictured, cut the sides off...

    20170707_072030.jpg

    ... and voila, perfect squares in plasterboard. You can see it can't quite plunge full depth in the corners, but a quick whack with a hammer to punch out the square, just causes some slight paper tear on the back, not an issue.
