I was skeptical about this product after reading mixed reviews. I have used it many times over the last few weeks and so far I haven't had any problems. It works great for me. The only thing I wish it mentioned in the product description is about the kind of table you need to attach the machine to. Your table cannot have rounded edges or a skirt underneath, which mine has. There needs to be two inches under the tabletop to attach the clamps to. I rigged something up by using a couple of wood blocks from my kids and non-slip padding. It's working and I'm getting projects done. I suppose that's all that counts.
