    That looks pretty terrible. Especially with the wood panel.

    Judging by the aesthetics of that machine, I'm guessing that the one in the photo was a prototype that they've been trying to get rid since deciding that it was a bad idea back in the 70's.

    hey, don't make fun at my machine. :)

    actually that machine is more advanced than the one I have.

    Yea, I noticed the Klipper colors and the website photos belong in the Brady Bunch. A nice new color scheme would probably sell more machines. Also, anyone even know how one fixed clamp is used? I don't get it.

    But I bet if someone tries to sell you that machine for $445, you'll laugh your @ss off.

    You need 2 starting clamps...string a few mains on one side, clamp off with a starting clamp, then do a few on the other side, clamp off with the other starting clamp, and repeat.

    What a waste of time. For less money and better build quality, i'd get an alpha pioneer dc plus.
