If you're making parts from balsa for smaller RC or free flight models I'd suggest that even a Dremel tool at the power source and setup some feautres to turn it into much of what the Hobby King machine shows would be better. For example a Dremel and router base screwed to a vertical plate that is attached to a small wood bed would be a great little wood lathe for turning spinners or super light wheels from balsa. And Dremel makes a drill press attachement as well.

If the info vtdiy posted about the saw table being only 3.5 inches square in size is right then I stand by my opinion that it's pretty much useless for any sort of hobby use. I'd rather use good quality hand tools than deal with the limitations of such a "toy".
