The other day, we talked a little about demo-style Phillips screwdrivers. There are some applications for an overbuilt demo-style Phillips driver, although slotted screwdrivers are more abusable and worthy of such “demo” designations.
But, the consensus of the comments is that demo Phillips screwdrivers are completely unnecessary.
In a comment, Cole says “I think demo just had an appealing ring to the marketing department.” And then Steven added “In reality I can call any tool ‘demo’.”
So let’s have some fun with this. What tools would sound silliest or most appropriate to be overbuild and described as a “demo” tool? Here are my ideas:
- Demo magnifying glass!
- Demo Tweezers!
- Demo scroll saw
- Demo non marring pipe wrench!
Well, that last one isn’t as good, because it’s not unreasonable to imagine an overbuild pipe wrench, although non-marring ones are generally designed for installation of delicate-surfaced fixtures. But hopefully you get the idea.
So what do you think would be most inappropriate to be redesigned as a demo-grade tool?
