Alright, when the price went below $100 delivered I had to get one. I really just wanted a second plunge base for my 5616 (I use the 5615 in the 5616-24 base for the Mortise Pal) but that was more money than this whole kit. Having the motors interchangeable between the 1-3/4HP and the 2-1/4HP VS unit is very handy. The spare fixed bases find their way into various routing jigs, and the spare collets are always nice but I am developing a snow drift of wrenches.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
