    Comes with legs (not pictured), Bought it second hand complete mitre fence, parallel fence, riving knife, blade guard and spare blade, most of the second hand ones don't have any of those tools with them, which are expensive on their own.

    Flips from mitre saw into table saw, very useful and versatile.

    Took a bit of time to get here as it's a new model from Scheppach. I love making dust with it but need a few lighter grade discs and belts.

    Got one of the older red and black grip versions of that, think mines a two foot long jobbie and its been fine on anything I've used it on so far. Mostly Transit wheel nuts.

    Yeah this one's a two foot one too. I love the Britool stuff, feels good and is excellent quality. I have no idea why people pay Snap On prices.

    Because a lot of people have Snap-on come to their place of work so it's easier. Britool, Mac, Etc are fine BUT they always seem to take longer to replace a dealer if one leaves. No Dealer means you have to pay to send stuff away for repair and because you have to post it it takes longer. The few "saved" over snap-on prices seems pretty hollow then !

    When I was a Snap-on dealer I replaced a breaker bar for a guy in a lorry workshop. The date mark on the broken one showed it was made in 1947. I would bet it cost more to make the replacement then had been paid for the original !

    Just got a Progrip guide clamp and a couple of attachments. Very useful for accurate cutting with a circular saw/jigsaw/router.

    I've got one of those with two fence attachments, works fantastically with the table saw. I've found that you need to be careful when using it with the router as I've had mine drift a touch, probably due to pushing too hard so I now back it up with a couple of speed clamps behind.
