    I considered this item, but the fact I saw a video of someone putting there hand on the motor and being able to stop it at high speed, tells me this won't be very good for anything other then the softest of woods
    What else do you expect for £20?

    I couldn’t find a review that said anything other than these being awful. Most likely why they are stuck with them.

    Should come with a health and safety warning. Lethal! I returned mine within two hours after it destroyed itself. So unsafe.

    Seriously, save your twenty quid (edited)

    This would probably be good for creating pieces to send to Lilliput.

    This is strange, I’ve always found parkside tools to be great for diy. I wonder why they put such a weak motor in it.
    Not just the motor. The “bed” looks useless.

    For what it’s worth I’ve had the sheppach version of this for a year or so, and it’s been brilliant. Bought as an entry to see if I’d get use out of it. Intention was to upgrade to an Axminster, but to be honest it’s fine.

    Obviously this version may not be totally identical and might have different components, but it looks VERY similar…

    It’s worth getting it as a tester to see if you take to the hobby, for £20 it’s disposable if you don’t like turning
