Not being critical here...but it resembles a ShopSmith to me. Even at that
price , I think I would rather have a ShopSmith than an offshore knockoff,
especially if you needed some specialized part or attachment. Don't think
that an Asian import would be very helpful in that area.
Most people here and other forums agree that these multi-purpose machines
do several different things, but only one or two functions well, the other one's
are leaving a lot to be desired and the tablesaw function is one of them.
Most,( a lot of ) people who buy these machines, find out, it's a lot of trouble
and some headache switching from function to another to do the necessary
woodworking for each project. I, for one like and use a dedicated, separate,
machines in mt shop....and that is a personal choice for me, not everyone!
A good quality tablesaw(at least it is for me anyway) is the center of my woodworking and is the one machine that I feel needs to be an anchor point
to start almost every project in the shop. My .02 cents worth.......eezlock
