I bought the WEN air cleaner for a little over a hundred – it works great and the fit and finish was spot on, quiet motor, clears the air like it’s supposed to. You never know with stuff unless you take a chance.

WEN comes from the same factory as PowerTec stuff. They seem very well made for a good price. I have 2 air cleaners in my shop, one PowerTec and one WEN but either remote controls both…lol.

I also have a WEN scroll saw and it seems very well made as well. Surprising to get decent quality for the price when usually HF only had them in that price range in the past.

I have a drill press which is a JET knockoff.
Mine isn’t badged WEN but I’m pretty sure
it’s the same. Perfectly satisfactory machine.

I bought a wen power planer. It was about 40 bucks if i remember correctly. I dont use it often, but very satisfactory performance when i do use it. I use a makita at work, and although they’re not the same quality, i would consider the wen to be a great value.

WEN air cleaner, works well and no issues, been more than 1 1/2 years I think.

My Wen Air Filtration and Wen 8” slow speed grinder work fine. Both at great prices.

I have looked into their drill presses and if I ever decide to upgrade from my little Harbor Freight model, I will likely go with Wen. The same is true for a few other tools and an air filtration system.

I plan on trying out the 12 inch benchtop one after I get done building this cabinet for my TS. The 8 inch benchtop Delta will be my 3rd drill press set up for pilot holes, the big boy is for woodworking only stuff. If I get it now I know I will unpack and immediately want a new cabinet, drawer, etc etc and get sidetracked…..

LOL
