That thing is awesome!

For 50 bucks, I'm definitely buying one of those. There're so many times over the last 20 years when one of those would've proven itself incredibly useful.

I'm starting the framing soon using metal studs & I think it will help a lot fitting the studs & track, plus refitting cabinets to the wall & ceiling

I used to redesign furniture for weight- and cost-savings......only caveat being the substitute had to have the same profile and 'feel' as the original. These things were invaluable during the process.
