A new clogsquad product maybe? I'm thinking mini all in one compact flex shaft pistol kind of thing or maybe an air pistol. Hard to tell anything from the picture other than a handle with a button.

Now I'm curious.

Default ergo auger

I bought one from the builder he is a plumbing contractor. Only talked by e-mail. I have the motor and the handle I just need to attach it to a drum. To be honest I have not use it yet. It uses an aluminum crutch end that has an adjustable end to get the correct height. You set it on the crutch stopper and balance it and run the cable out wit the other hand. Saw a video of a little girl using it if she can do it so can I. Maybe a manufactures did pick up the design? I have either a demo or a proto-type.

The video on the ergo-auger site has been taken down and I found a picture of a husky brand auger with a similar handle albeit not powered. I assume he either sold the design/idea or he failed at marketing/production.
