rcav8r2, somehow I'm not surprised they are the same. I probably could have had my LHS order it in with their normal deliveries and saved the freight. Thanks for letting us know that.
Rick, your right about the saw expense. A friend loaned me his for a couple of years and then had the audacity to ask for it back. By that time I was so solidly hooked I had to buy my own. Before buying thought about all the airplane stuff I could have bought with the same money but I use this saw on every build...it really shines on stick builds like vintage rc planes. I found it speeds my build, far more accurate and really saves me dollars in balsa cost.
Let us know how you like your bender.
