Since it's pickup only, where are you located?

No longer for sale, recalled for safety.  Just letting people know if they have same model.

I had one similar years ago, and it’s easy to see why they were recalled, they were a very weak framed system, making it very easy for it to climb at the operator.  

It did have a 1/4” router collet opposite the saw spindle that looked like it might have some use, but again the weak frame probably limits the usefulness of it as well. 

I was happy to be rid of it when it left, as it was screaming loud, and had a pitch that really was irritating even with hearing protection.
