    Got three of them. Armstrong stopped making tools.

    I have one I got in a toolkit from the Armstrong installation school in 1988. What a great tool.

    I got one from them as well, 40$ seems a little high, are blades still available.

    I have that tool.

    I'd have to look but I might have two.

    Never used it.

    They're on Ebay now and again for significantly less than $40.

    I'm sure I didn't pay more than $10-15 just to see what the hell they were.

    I liked it when I was installing in my own, has to be an extension of your hand, so it takes a little getting use to. Used for residential thin stuff. The bottom of it would scratch the vinyl as other trimmers would, I believe it's hollow underneath. I don't know how many tools I've had to tape up in order to prevent scratching.

    The fuzzy side of a velcro kit works good for the tools that slide on wall base or floors.

    I will need to see if I can get a replacement for one of them. It can be one of the other kind. I carry them in my training bag for when I do training's. I like to let the installers get a feel of them.

    It would be great to get one. I have Proknees Goof proof trimmer it works good but I am just knot comfortable with it. I used the s-66 for so many years that I could almost cut in a room with my with my eyes closed using it. I do have a few blades left for the s-66 and a sores for a few more but that will dry up soon. I would like to know about the sores in china. Of course that isn't going to do me any good unless I can get another cutter. I keep checking Ebay But I haven't found one yet except for the two that sold a while back.
