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!
