A friend sent me this link and although it’s pretty interesting, can’t imagine a use for it. But the video is interesting nonetheless…

I can’t believe that he actually got it all back in the case. very interesting, may be good for a small shop, or for a start up kit.

A cordless drill press and tablesaw, that would certainly bring new meaning to the term “underperforming”, the upbeat elevator music didn’t make me want one more either.

Price is $499.99…..still too rich for me.

Be ok for the jobsite guy, go to the site and get right to work. Not sure how many batteries it has in use at a time. Would they last even to lunchtime? Might be ok for a Trim Carpenter to use on site.

Very ingenious! Maybe if I lived in an apartment.

I saw this comment on another site, *check out min 5:57- the handles are lifting themselves!” You’ve got to look at that, it’s a riot!!

I loved the DP deflection in the sucker. Why do they all cut 1/2” pine for their demos.

It looks like a solution for an apartment shop or a single car garage with technology car in it too!
I noticed a lot of deflection in the column when drilling and I would like to see them cut oak or maple.

Can’t find any more information on the web, except that the company is South Korean!

That portashop looks like it has more metal than a dozen of the POWER8 WORKSHOP.
