Got to say, I'm impressed with it, its a 1.5kw chinese jobby. It was very well packaged and after unwrapping it all I'm surprised to see that it has 3 collets with it(3.1, 4, 6mm).

The look and feel of it definitely makes me think it is a quality item, didn't realise how heavy it was going to be though. I hope my Z can lift it :chuncky: All in all I'm happy with it, it arrived 2 days after ordering(arrived at the same time as my timber order :biggrin:) and really feels like a good piece of kit, going to fire it up as soon as I find some wire to hook it up :)

Does yours come with the four pin plug/connector? is there an earth inside or are just the three wires connected?

Thanks
