Electric Wallpaper Stripper – ??

I got this e-mail through the National Guild of Professional Paperhangers:

The Rokamat Wallpaper Removal System
Rapidly perforates wallpaper for soaking, then quickly shaves it off the wall
Has a flexible shaft drive leaving the motor off the tool for light weight in the hand
Includes the Chameleon dual disc machine, perforating discs, shaving discs, and rails
Is designed and manufactured in Germany

See it on U-Tube:


I see this as something that SOUNDS good, especially to novices or DIY’ers. But in actuality, I can’t imagine the damage this gizmo would do to the wall surface.

Why not just stick with good old hot water, a sponge, and a 4″ stiff putty knife?
