The 910 is a very capable home stringer. Frequent tune ups are required. If you're handy, I'd recommend a couple of Home Depot hardware upgrades and fixes.
I have used older generation Gamma machines before and I expect the ST II to be exceptional. The only down grade between them is lack of stand, which is fine because I intend to use it on my B&D WorkMate.
Oh, so the combo 910 also has a screw brake?
The stand is nice, but I don't need it that much.
Also, when people say calibrate the stringer everytime you move it, do they mean like moving it up and down the stairs or even a couple of feet?
