Saw this on a FB page of a Polish or Russian guy making a table top. I know combination machines are compromises but this looks pretty handy for small jobsite work. Seems these are widely available in Europe but not here and I’ve never even considered the concept of it. Makita, Bosch, DeWalt and a bunch of other companies manufacture them so they must be proven. Looks really handy for flooring or other trim work and would be more portable than having two machines to cart around. I can’t put a pic up so here’s a link to the amazon site. Any one own one and if you do how is it?

I first saw them 15 or 20 years ago in the trade journals. Virutex finally brought one to the states.

As far I know this one is great. But true that this is too pricey

That because it’s better than Harbor Freight quality.
