If you decide to buy, do yourself a favor and buy from sears, pay the 280 for a 5 year warranty other wise after 1 year you will be suckin dust. these do break and off ton. most times it is just small low $ things but they are are PC in a wood shop the 2 down mix well.
There is only one service center for sears, it is here in TX I think Galand or Grapevine but most times Sears dont know and just sends them out and it takes forever.
If the unit can not be fixed they give you a new one

The weak point with the unit is the chuck, many are sent out not ballanced and the unit wil vibe it to death parts will fail. If you are one of a lucky few and get a good chuck you will run fine
Ther is a replacement chuck that is sold by a Ron Justice that is great cuts down the vibe to zip and machince work fine. look up CarveWright they have a foruem just on the units. The maker LHR has a site wich will lead you to lots of info that will help along the way . look at Tips
The units are great when you get them set up and working well but it will take a bit on you part so just be aware. Do not buy a refurb unit unless you know how they work and you can work on them cause you will.
