    Stanley #1 Odd Job

    I've noticed that Rockler & Garrett Wade are carrying their version of this tool. Never used one but I'm intrigued by it. Does anyone have any thoughts on this thing?

    Here's where I'm seeing them:

    Doesn't look like it gives you anything you couldn't get done another way. Looks kinda cool & useful, though. Would probably make for a good gift.

    I have two of the ones that are sold by Garrett Wade and I have a complete original Odd Job #1. The GW one is slightly bigger than the original but is accurate in all other facets of the tool. As a collector I acquired it from an old friend that pass away, but have seen them from time to time on the "x" bay site.

    Looks clever. But, like Rob, I don't see that it does anything other tools can't do as well. For collectors, an original would be fun to have.
