I found this website accidentally and then ordered a kit; thought that I will pass along the information to the L-J bunch of sawdust specialists!

Is that for real? Those prices seem too good to be true! They are new, correct? Please let us know how yours turns out! Thanks for sharing!

It really seems too good and based in China. I would not trust them…...IMHO

Keep an eye on your credit card you used…..just in case. My experiences in life say that anything to good to be true….isn’t. Good luck. I like the others would like to hear about the outcome.

So I have to say,this is probably scam! I found similar site couple months ago,made a order and beside confirmation mail I didn’t get anything. After a month I had to block my credit card because someone use it,and then I try to claim back my money through bank costumer service,which didn’t go well.Also main company was also from China…
So I want to advise you, if you add you’re credit card info,block card right now.
I hope it will go well for you,because we all want/need good brand new tools!

Sorry guys but I’ll have to call out BS on this one. All of the social media links are dead and the contact email address isn’t under the same domain as the site. And no contact phone #.

I hope I’m wrong. If I am though, y’all might as well give up ‘cause I’m just gonna buy everything they have then you can buy it from me on ebay ;-)
