Customer Reviews of This Item
Great Miniature Benchtop Unit!
Great little bench-top unit! Conserves space in my already crowded jewelry studio/workshop. Easy to move around and support various drilling needs wherever its required.
<br>Overall, a precision tool but they could stand to pay a bit more attention to quality control for the add-on pieces. Why take an otherwise good tool and add cheap poorly-fitting plastic and accessories?
