I have to say it’s a very versatile set up. I wonder what they want for it.

Obviously made in China and demonstrated by a professional demonstrator. For $799, I would be wary about multi-function tools. They usually don’t perform as well as dedicated tools.

Those tools that do everything don’t do anything really well. Might be ok for a home maint. use, but not for a pro jobsite.
Just my thoughts.

I’d say you are probably right in your statement….But, IMO, I think the concept is pretty cool and is worthy of sharing….

Yep, your comments are probably right. But, IMO, I think the concept is pretty cool and worthy of sharing. Edited to update additional comment

Did I see someone cutting on the “table saw” free hand without a fence at about 2:05?

I love my cordless tools but even the most powerful ones are not a replacement for corded versions and I am very doubtful they could ever be a decent tablesaw. With a good enough battery and motors you might be able to make a decent enough cordless drill press or scroll saw but that thing looks like it has to much plastic on it and the tablesaw is what most people would want it for anyways I would imagine. If you take the table gimmick out of this set it’s just a cheap looking set of cordless tools that would probably sell for $100 in a big box store.

Have your say...
