A FANTASTIC piece of equipment, Dutchy. 5 in 1 heh? I have not 1 but two ShopSmith which is a table saw – an okay one for rough work, a drill press – I like it, a horizontal boring machine – good, but I use it very little, a band saw – won’t saw (rip) a straight line, and a lathe – for beginner only. I use a Rigid brand table saw which I am very unhappy with and will be replacing ASAP. I am considering the SawStop, but it is pricy so it’s not in the immediate future. I have never heard of the Sicar, Dutchy. Is it strictly an European machine and runs on 220V? Where is it made, the price and so on. I would very much appreciate hearing a little more about it. I will look for it on the Internet to see if I can find it.
Ancient history: ha ha! When I used to work in Asia, I had a close working relationship with the Holland America line. I’ve been on the Rotterdam and the Amsterdam and worked closely with many fine Dutch associates with the line. I am recalling some fine memories back when . . . ! That’s why I’ve always had a special place in my heart for the Dutch. I would be honored if you would accept me as your “Buddy” in LJ.
