Basically when it comes to any sort of machine tooling intended to work with metal if the price seems too good to be true you had better bet that it is a piece o' junk. In the world of metal working or even working with harder plastics that is an iron clad truth.
i want to work on wood (notably balsa) so i don't see these limitations as a no sale

the ability to have a small (tiny) table saw and a little drill press is fine when you consider that any powered plane rated over 3s doesn't get a space in my hangar

anything else it does (tiny sanding disc) is an okay bonus till i have the luxury of a workshop instead of the return on my office desk as the spare room for building
