    actualy it's not a bad deal, $163 including tax out the door. Came with a 1/4",3/8",1/2" bits and an extra chuck with extension shaft so it can be used for a drill press.
    1/2 Hp same as the jet and delta that cost twice as much. I think it's a keeper. I don't think I'll be moveing it around much. It weighs 25 kg.

    Excellent! Many times I've been tempted, but never quite pulled the trigger. Next time cashflow loosens up a bit, I may have to shuffle stuff around in my shop to make room for one.

    Which one is that (I'm young to the forum, so I may've missed some previous talk about it)?

    Tim,
    It's from Harbor Freight, it's a Jet clone.
    OK I've got it cutting mortices 2" long in White Oak so I think I have a handle on it.

    I've got the same one about 6 months ago Don, it did take some fiddling around with adjustments and fine tuning, but has been working great since.
