They work extremely well with a little of a learning curve.  Terry Scott (AUS) showed off using one when he did a demo at my house last summer.  It worked well and had no problems with end grain hollowing.  The handle Rolly makes has a vacuum to it so even if the screws loosen, the tool won't come out of the handle...very ingenious!

I agree w/our friendly, neighborhood, moderator. It's a very useful tool if only by virtue of it's articulated design.

If you buy one make sure you get a sharpening stone with it. Also, the old saw "2 heads are better than 1" applies here as well.
