Indi the Dingo Bitch Circumnavigates the Globe

The bosch pof 1200 has been pretty well tested i think, i’ve cut quite a few projects with it, i sold about 40 conversion kits, and haven’t recieved any complaints yet. (No positive feedback either, but i guess that’s a good thing, since people are always more vocal when they complain)
