Hey I'm looking for one of those! Hard to find a tapered shank rougher with the soft bottom that wont scratch your work if you drop it. Really though you have to give the seller some credit, it was probably some poor soul digging through a deceased loved ones workshop and trying to sort everything out to sell and well you know the rest of the story.
This is what has happened since our high schools dropped industrial arts. No association to a threaded hole that a bolt screws in to.... this is tragically sad... this person has no clue what this 'thing' is.
You guys are looking at this "culturally sensitive" thing as a bad thing. You're looking at it all wrong. I think it's marvelous! You see, these people's Dads didn't take the time with their kids to teach them or the Dads didn't posess the skills to pass on.......That's where I come in. The tasks such as fabrication/welding that they cannot do.......I can! I take their money and do these tasks for them and my son will as well.
My boy is 5 and needs alot of guidance but, he has desire to learn.
