I build a lot of guitars. For a private guy with a day-job, that is. Maybe 25 a year. The ROSS unit has transformed the way I build like no other addition to my shop. Best $200 I ever spent, hands-down. I've had -zero- issues with regards to failure or table not closing to 90 degrees. I use it on every build, from sanding the excess close to the rout line after band sawing, truing up the sides of fret boards and one-piece necks, sanding the headstock "scoop" above the nut, etc. One does need to clean and maintain it, set it up now and then, etc but what power tool in the shop doesn't require such? The only criticism of the ROSS I can think of is that there's no feature for stopping the up-and-down motion when in spindle mode. Well, I'll live with that, considering how much shop assistance and making my builds easier that one tool has provided me with. All that for a paltry two-hundred bucks. Amazing. If it ever took a dump on me, you would find me at Home Depot buying another one within the hour.
