Wish me luck

It is way too heavy for me to manhandle freehand. But what a great table machine. Enjoy it.

Originally the TRA001 base plate did not even allow any Guide Bushes to be mounted because it was designed for the table and not for freehand use.
After many users wanted it to be use dual-mode, the base was later modified to be able to take guide bushes,
