Has anyone used or own the Marksman conduit layout tool? Just curious if it is a good as the manufacturer claims. It looks like a decent idea but is it worth 20.00?

Never heard of one of these, is there a website with a picture?


Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

I bought one for myself and one for my helper at the NECA show in Chicago last month. The guy who invented it was demonstrating it, and it looked real good. It takes a little getting used to, but I think it is a real handy tool. My helper compared it to the Swanson speed square that carpenters use. I think someday it may be as common for us to carry a Marksman as it is to carry Kleins. Just my opinion.

oops sorry about the bum URL. Broadband isn't in our subdivision yet so can anyone let me know what the video was about? Don't have 4 days to watch video on web. [Linked Image]

Brief synopsis:

It allows you to lay out holes in enclosures in perfect alignment at a faster rate, without lots of measuring and figuring.

Enclosures without KOs that is...

Pretty neat!
