I have received the nibbler and managed to cut a neat hole in my rainwater tank that made an exact fit for the new inlet screen. It was easier than I had expected.
I used my cordless drill and I was impressed to see that I could slow down the revs at difficult parts and the cutter continued to function without difficulty. When cutting a curve this is much better than stopping and starting to change grip or hand position. I told some friends about it and they want to see it working. I think I've become just like the tradesman that told me about it in the first place. I really was that excited that I had to tell my friends about it. The proof of the pudding really is in the eating in this case.
From my background, I understand that the most important part of the tool is the metal quality and machining of the cutting tool surfaces. I once purchased a cheap Chinese tap and die set only to find they don't work. I am confident that this aspect of the tool would more than likely exceed the quality of most, if not all, other on the market. I like to save money on my purchasing as much as the next guy, but at my age I've learnt that when it comes to tools, quality is far more important than price in the purchasing choice. I've been tempted in the past to purchase a cheap tool with the reasoning that I only need it to do the one job and regretted the decision because it didn't do that one job well. My father was a humble man and being an engineer and an intelligent man, only ever bought high quality tools. Sadly he's passed away now but I experience great memories in the pleasuer of using his tools and hope that I can leave the same legacy to my children. In many years to come my children will at some stage use your nibbler, and think "this tool dad bought is really cool".
