The folks over at Oe Time Tools have done it yet again.
They've taken a simple task like making dowels and made a mess of it.

The most common tools for making shop made dowels are still available for purchase,
While some actually meet the price of the OTT, They don't have any limit on the length of dowel that can be made.

pencil@ $99.99 goes where no pencil@ has gone before

eraser@ $599.99 did you cut that board too short again? with the eraser@, you can "erase" your mistake and start over again. limit 1.2 billion erases.

FYI: i like the @ better then ©  Wink

ShopFox 1704 Lathe can turn a 12" dowel for $209

Sharpen one edge of a open end wrench to get perfect dimension every time.

Best of all, neither are a unitasking tool.

I use quite a few dowels in my toymaking but I just can't see putting the dollars into any dowel making tool. If I need a special wood shade from a dowel a few minutes on the lathe with pen stock solves that need.

Everyone here has published all the things I was thinking...these One Time tools are ONE TIME because they can only find ONE (edited out) to buy it! Grin

I predict the next one-time tool will be a pencil sharpener that will cost $599.99, it will sharpen those carpenter pencils.  It will operate on 220V. It will have an aluminum body which will be
RED
and will almost work as well as the knife that is already in your pocket which does so much more .....   Thumbs Up
