    As an alternative, how about the GI @ $299 from Woodcraft? I'd also check into Grizzly, Harbor Freight, and Steel City as options. (none are orange though! )

      I just bought a DP1550- and I'm ready to use it as a boat anchor.

      The head is miscast. The quill stroke is not parallel with the column, nor perpendicular to the table.

      Before everyone yells out about the bevel adjustment, been there done that. it isn't a l/r error. It is a fore to aft problem, hence the stroke not being parallel to the column.

      I reversed my installation looking for foreigh debris of a busrr of anything that was causing it to no avail.

      Submitted a Query to RODGID hoping not to have to drive the 250 miles to where I purchased it.

      Were it me, I'd talk you out of it.

        Sorry to hear about the bad experience, I have a DP1550 and have been very happy about it... may be I'm just one of the lucky ones.

        ... but 250 miles??? no HD in your area?
