    Eugene - I appreciate your brevity of comment but would you mind elaborating a bit for the OP and any of us who arenít already in on the story? On paper, the RC seems slightly uprated from the base...

    I'm with Jim. If a meteor was going to hit my house I would definitely be sheltering under my Stinger II. Heavy and solid. With that said, the most comparable Shopsabre (the RC4) is significantly...

    Hi Josh.

    I'm certainly not an expert like Gary or Jim. I've only owned and extensively used one machine. I've had a good experience with Camaster - reliable machine, well built, capable - even...

    I love my Stinger II 4 x 4 but I wouldn't call it portable. Built like a battleship and weighs somewhere around 900 to 1000 lbs.

    Just a question to the OP. If you are in the market for a 4 x 8 machine, I assume you are anticipating cutting full sheets of material for cabinets, etc. otherwise you wouldn't be in the market for a...

    This has been a fascinating thread to watch. Thanks everyone for the insights.

    During my original purchase, I felt like I had excellent support from Camaster. I really haven't had any problems...

    Thanks everyone. All outstanding points and it makes sense. I've requested a quote from Camaster for a tricked out Stinger I to downsize and upgrade and will see how that looks. Hopefully that can be...

    Thanks so much for the detailed response, Jim. I've followed many of your posts over the years and appreciate it.

  9. Hard decisions concerning CNC upgrade/downgrade for small shop

    Looking for some advice from those in the know concerning my current CNC dilemma. I have a small shop (basically a small two car garage) which is way too overcrowded with machinery. Back when I was...

  11. Upgrade, refurbish, buy new or do nothing?

    I have a 2004-2007 vintage epilog Legend 36EXT 45 watt machine that I purchased second hand in 2009. It has worked flawlessly with relatively low demand on the same tube for the past 11 years. I am...

    Not to be an enabler here.... It would be very nice to have both. A slider can do most anything well but there are those times when I miss my saw stop cabinet saw. At least fix up the Oliver to test...

    Lisa,

    Just one other thing. If you haven't had any experience with a true full sized sliding saw - it's really an epiphany. Working with a decent sized sliding saw with air clamps is so far beyond...

    I'd be reluctant to use "craigslist economics" to drive your decision making. Likewise, craigslist isn't a place to make a killing on selling tools. If you want to thin the herd that's certainly a...

    I previously had a saw stop with a Jessem sliding table which was quite nice but in no way shape or form even in the same universe as my Felder sliding saw. I would second that the saw doesn't take...

    You are about to be marooned on a desert island that has (amazingly) 120v power and a single outlet. You can bring one tool. It sure isnít going to be a hollow chisel mortiser. (Says the guy who...

    Well I stand corrected. I have not tried every mortising tool. An oscillating chisel mortiser sounds extremely cool. I looked at some old ones online and they seem like about 3000 lb monsters that...

    Certainly the "more is better" concept always applies. However, I think that a 12" jointer and a 20" planer would be hard to beat but very expensive. Honestly, I can't really recall many situations...
