I am tempted to buy it,but it's just another 100 dollars going to China
I have been laid off work since May. And while I have the money to buy stuff like this. Not having a job has really got me trying to boycott all the Chinese crap I can. It's really impossible,but that Taig will last several lifetimes,and is made in the USA. Yea it's overkill for balsa wood I have to admit. But the Hobbyking "jewel" is just a 100 dollar gamble. And if you aren't happy sending it back will be a huge,stressful pain.
Being laid off where I am really watching my pennies,it's amazing how much money I used to blow on CRAP without giving it much thought. If it broke not long after I bought it,I just wrote it off as "oh well,it didn't cost very much anyway". But if one pays attention,it's unbelievable how much all of those "oh wells" add up to.
