I couldn't think of any more applications and I imagine that the removable tools would have odd looking orifaces for connection to the stable bench type tools, but I think the concept is do-able. Why pay twice for the same tool?

       Everything is detatchable nowadays Zimmy.   

       [ravenswood], it may sound silly, but yes. In shop tools you can achieve much more precision with a bench tool as it is locked into a plane, while a hand tools' precision depends upon the user's ability to maintain a certain parallelness that is just not possible for exact work.

       Each and every one of those is fully baked in my father's basement workshop.

       [Freefall], Shouldn't he try and market these inovations? Especially the tasar.
