LMAO - Funny, I believe I have that same glue bottle bought some years
ago. I've since found that a bondo spreader works better for me.
In use, the rubber sleeve moves around on the plastic roller and jams,
and the pins slip out of the jaws at the least opportune times.
When I see things like this today, I tend to move on to another
product, because they have put as little time into engineering and
testing these products as in translating their version of the
Of course, there are exceptions. At least Lee Valley provides a
readable translation on the items they sell - so far...
Actually, they must have improved the device. I needed something today to
laminate 2 x 12's into 3 x 12's and didn't want to use a glue brush, so I
picked that up mainly for the rollers (can't find the proverbial "printing
supply house" locally .... they must have all moved to Taiwan, you reckon?).
It did the job nicely and in a fraction of the time.
I did get a kick out of the instructions, though ... thought they would be
worth at least a chuckle, but I obviously didn't take into account the
politically correct, global trade mindset 'talking points' issue/agenda some
seem to want to make of it.
And the Greek translation of Leon's English translation of the Chinese
translation of the English original intent didn't survive the text only post
either ... oh well, the day is older and the funny bone has been pushed back
beneath the surface where it (apparently) belongs.
The rollers do work pretty well.
Ever considered a laminate J-roller?
At least they have high quality bearings and roller.
And a dandy handle... (Yea, right - $22 for a glue spreader...)
I know - I'm as guilty as anyone on that count. It's a hard thing to
watch happen and not get just a _little_ hot over it.
Although I'm a little slow to KillFile _anyone_, I'm sure I've ended
up in quite a few recently.
Extended ASCII is funny that way.
I still use a pure text reader myself.
(Between you and me, however, I think he was typing garbage.)
Shoot, I forgot the main reason I replied to this...
(Aside from your rugged good looks and scary-sharp wit...)
If you think that is bad, try deciphering the alignment instructions
for a piece of complex Japanese electronics test gear from - oh, say,
the early 1970s. Now THAT's Greek!
Well actually, it would be Jinglish, but that's beside the point...
There is definitely a chasm between the Celtic and Asian mindsets.
I bet. Some of the manuals are still not all that great.
But I guess what with the Chinese and Japanese collaborating and
gearing up for closer economic ties, that's not something we'll have
to worry about any more.
We can just grow food and spread democracy.
Reminds me of a time 30 years or so ago when I was unpacking a load of parts
at a friend's bicycle shop. Some low-end side pull brake calipers were in
the order for the service of department store bikes (something that the shop
eventually refused to do). The boxes were marked "ront" and "frear." My
friend the shop owner and I still chuckle over that... ;~)
