Apparently very detailed how-to documents for "less than the cost of a blade" = $21.

It looks like very good documentation.

The first page shows a video and minute 3:10 shows how it doesn't vibrate, 7:01 how it does small pieces, and 9:14 how it can cut a 25 cm (I think) thick log.

I find it interesting how using mostly wood he achieves big strength: the "C" doesn't become an "O" easily at all. Not everything has to be iron. I guess RepTab & co will allow for making all sorts of wooden tools.

Yes, this is great. It's better for lighter duty applications that what we're currenly looking for (such as cutting tractor frames for LifeTrac) but it does serve many purposes. With RepTab & Co, this would be an excellent product for market, though lifetime of course will be shorter than steel - so from lifetime issues it does not rate high on OSE Specifications.
