Personal feedback on Steel City
Do you have a Steel City tool of any kind? I am soliciting feedback from owners of these tools. I stopped by the only tool dealer on my side of the water Thursday, and found they had considered carrying SC (they now carry Jet, Powermatic, General and Shop Fox) but claimed they had heard “horror stories” and were hesitant to jump in.
These guys are always full of “horror stores” about one tool or another — the ones they don’t carry. They seem to firmly believe that if they trash the competition, it’ll help their sales. That aside, I’d love to have a place 10 miles away that carries SC, instead of having to take an expensive ferry ride, and then drive for 40 minutes to get to them. I suspect they hear said stories from the management of the big three, LOL.
So! If you have a SC tool (that’s you Sarge, of course, and others), please write me a succinct description of your opinion of the tool, how it performs, how you consider it better than the competition and/or why you chose it over others. Thanks!
