Yep, I use one when I empty the bag on my dust collector.

I think the reason they are priced so high is because they have a lifetime warranty. Kinda makes you appreciate Craftsman a little more. : )

And gift wrapping is not available for this item. That sucks!

I suspect that the "beryllium-free" part is what makes them so expensive--beryllium copper is normally used in those applications and it's expensive enough.

I like the way they price it out to the penny: "$1098.86".
I was gonna' buy it at $1098.85, but no way I'm gonna pay $1098.86......."

Who are they kidding? You can buy the Harbor Freight equivalent for $850.00.

I was going to buy one of those, but then noticed that it normally ships in 1 to 2 MONTHS! Dangit, I need it for my explosive environment *now*, not in one or two months. :-)

Some time back I was working for a company that made a test stand for fighter jet fuel pumps. It had a 60,000 rpm output shaft running off zero-lag gearing using pressurized lubrication and the exterior housing was made of 1 1/2" cast meehanite to keep the pieces inside on the day that the bearings eventually fail. I imagine the guys who work in that facility know all about these sorts of tools.
