According to post #19 at that link "This kit to my knowledge was designed by Dick Rhodes, a former employee of Shopsmith. " Interesting.

These copy cat kits don't come close to EZ ones. For one thing, it is not only the pieces you are buying, but an integrated system that is without parallel in its utility and flexibility. That system keeps getting better. My guess is that the materials are higher quality as well. Certainly some other copycats are lower quality, you can tell from their ads.

Just like folks that think boses make the best speakers and charge an arm and leg for them as the big green that I never liked how they do business.
Lets hope both or even others like them have there day a face the rath.

But to make a video and talk like you came up with a great idea when its not even yours wow I could never say something is my idea when it was not.

Just like music if I sing a song its not mine they call that a cover song and thats what I do sing cover songs and play songs that others do the same with.
