That was swell. Now, what the heck would you use that for?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

As an electrician (many years ago) I needed one of those on two different occasions. In both cases, I was trying to get wires from the wall into the ceiling and there was a double joist sitting right on top of the wall. For both I ended up chopping out a lot of wood and sheet rock that wouldn't have been necessary if I had one of these, but there's no point in me making one now. It's been almost 50 years since the last time I needed it. I now leave that kind of work to younger guys.

I can see one very good use for it. Back when I rewired this old house we live in. It would have been very handy when I got to a corner lead and had to drill into it from both d\sides to get a wire through it.
