    I haven't owned one, but I have seen more complaints about the Eagnas dropweights than any of their other machines. Klippermates are solidly built machines. The disadvantage with them is in the tension head. It doesn't have a clutch/ratcheting mechanism, which makes it harder to get the arm to the horizontal position. IMO, you should also look at the Gamma X-2 or Silent Partner Swing.l

    The klippermate is a first class machine for less than 150 bucks. The only item that I did not like is the wing nuts to tighten the posts. It is hard to get them tight enough by hand. The supplied needle nose pliers can be used though. It does not have the ratchet thing Gaines mentions, but it is made in the USA and life time warrantee can not be beaten.

    I think the Klipper USA line are the only machines made in the USA.

    I have a Klipper... great machine for the money. As Gaines mentioned the only draw back for me is the non-ratcheting clutch. I also think I would like to upgrade my clamps at some point.
    But I am thinking about maybe up-grading to a mutual power sometime in the next few months.
