For $216 (with 20% off coupon) more you could get one of the HF 12×33 with a variable speed and a spindle that pivots for outboard turning. I would give that a pass at that price. I personally wouldn’t go for even Loren’s $100 unless they threw in some turning tools. I don’t like changing belts for speed changes.
