Default Porta-Shop Multitool

Hey guys I just ran across this Craigslist listing of the Original Multi-tool.

Anyone ever used one of these?

That's really interesting, Herb. Thanks for sharing

Fascinating but I already take too much time doing set up for anything I do. But it might work for an urban woodworker

Learning is an exciting adventure

My dad ran 4-5 stores that sold Porta Shop in Detroit area shopping malls. The front of the store had furniture made from the Porta Shop. In the back classes were held and owners were invited to build with other woodworkers. There was a tv show called Design Workshop which hosted my dad demonstrating the tool every week on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. On local TV.
