Seems a little lonely there. Be nice to it and give it some sawdust.

This thing is a joy to work with compared to the old Altendorf it replaced. It took us some time to square it up the best we could but now there's only a 0.5 mm deviation over the entire length of the sliding table, not too shabby. I especially like the operating panel. You just enter your numbers, push enter and the machine sets itself up. The company made a very good purchase.

It's a Robland. That's a Belgian manufacturer.

Jinkies! What's the USD$ tag for that bad boy. I need to know how

Very nice! Same for the Martin

Nice machine!

How old was that Altendorf?  You can buy a secondhand Altendorf, couple of years old for the same price as that Robland new.  And if was up to me, I would buy the used Altendorf.
I think you get more bang for the buck.

As for the Martin, I have a Martin T72A from 1997 bought it 6 months ago for €5000.  Digital readouts, automatic height and blade tilting and an automatic fence,  great machine!
So maybe in a couple of years you can get that saw from your wallpaper secondhand!

what specific features does this Robland have that your "old" Altendorf did not have? (how "old" ?)

That's  a heavyweight.  Would the   slider not get tiresome  pushing all that weight  day in, day  out?

Glides with one finger.

Wonderful example of 70's German engineering.

I thought the same thing!  Maybe they are normal cinderblocks and the panel saw is really just a tiny machine!!  [big grin]
