But, can it core a apple?

400 bucks is a lot of dough, man.

In about a year, Walmart will have a Chinese-made knockoff for $39.95. 

And it'll work great for about six months. :lol:

If Micro-Mark(up) is getting $400, you can probably find the same unit elsewhere for around half that.  That's what I found with the vacuum forming machine (it's a dental lab unit) and the spray booth...

My high school wood shop teacher, Mr. Romanowski, had one that he let us use in class. Nice tool.

at harbor freight for another 150.00 can get a lathe, now I am not knocking the tool itself, I have seen one on instagram, would love to actually own one. I think in my own opinion of course is I do not see what makes it $400.00. its like a dremel with a blade.  Probably will come down by half in the next year and a half.

The Burgess Vibro Tool is basically and engraving tool with a chuck; the chuck will hold round shanks and has slots to accommodate Xacto blades (or photo-etch saw blades).

Mine has two speeds, and an adjustment for stroke-length. It works very well when cutting thick leather.

As mentioned,  $400 seems a bit much. Watching the video didn't really show anything that would make me want to go out and spend that much for one.

That's why I posted an alternative. Yes, it's an oldie but it's also a goodie (if you find one in decent shape).
