What intrigues me the most is that it includes a magnetic blade attachment for reading blade tilt angle +/- 0.1 percent.

Looks pretty good, especially the price, although I’m not in the market ‘cause I already have an Osborne EB-3.

However, if I were in the market I’d be concerned on what provisions are provided to adjust the miter bar to miter slot slop.

Having said that I still think the Osborne is better as follows:
