Cheap 300 Pipe Threading Machine

I bought this nice 300 machine knock off on ebay. Price was only $1500 and it works as well as my real Ridgid 300 machine. Has anyone else tried these Chinese threaders?

Cheap 300 Pipe Threading Machine

Hope it continues to do so. Cheap is okay if you are only using it around the house for small jobs. I have bought Chinese big ticket items in the past and the longevity just wasn't there. Trying to get parts was also a hassle. I had a 4 wheel drive Rhino tractor at $7200 that lasted 3 years. The company went out of business (or at least quit selling in the U.S.) and no other parts fit it. Ended up selling it for parts for a few other unlucky souls that bought them.

If you have never made a mistake, you haven't done much.
