1} Does anyone have one of these models?

2} What do you think about it?

Have you not heard of the QUEBEC LITE?

Hi JL,

Have you not heard of the QUEBEC LITE? We manufacture them since last year.It has all the advantages of the more expensive machines and more.

Not as agressive as others, practicaly silent, no rust problems, comes with a one hour video with very explicit immages that shows all the tricks of the trade. If thats not enough, simply call me at my toll free line and I will set you straith. Your never stuck with a Quebec. The most interesting advantage is the price : Only $375.00 for the head unit, $475.00 for the head and motor and $685.00 for the complete unit including table and adjustable legs. Thats half price.

I have the Dakota V and really like it. It does a very nice job and the way it is designed it very easy to keep clean. I also have the smaller model which I also like. I had a table built for my fleshing machines and only have to slide them in and out to interchange.
I believe all the machines are good and just have different design features . Find out about all of them and then decide what works the best for you.
