One of my guys bought this unit. It almost looks exactly like my unit in the shop. Even the color. The shop unit was made locally and cost five times as much (two or three years ago). The gauge of steel is a fair amount less then the shop unit, but it works well for him. He said that it flexes a bit to much, the base pedestal swivels to much, but over all, it gets the job done. When these two issues are at work, you will pick up bad habits and require to adjust the setting far more then you like. On the up side the dies are hardened, and look pretty good. If you use it for light gauge steel (like exterior automotive skins from the mid 60's on up) and find a way to keep the slack out of the pedestal this is a excellent starter unit.
