I purchased a Model 220 Work Station this afternoon (after waiting almost a year for it). It looks like it will be extremely useful in my hobby (model railroading). It might have been a good idea though if Dremel had assembled a Work Station using the printed instructions before shipping the product or at least let the person preparing the instructions see the product as it would be shipped to customers. I found two problems:
- The first is minor but a bit confusing. The square nut shown in Figure 1 for the Base Hex Bolt is in fact a hex nut. This becomes obvious when you can't find a square nut large enough to fit the Base Hex Bolt and there seems to be an extra large hex nut.
- The second is more serious and might cause some bad words to be pronounced over your product. Step 1 on page 4 says to assemble the tube to the base. This is all well and good except that Step 2 then becomes impossible: the Drill Press fits too tightly over the tube to clear the plastic plug at the top of the large tube. The only way I could get my Work Station assembled was to reverse these two steps; putting the Drill Press on the tube and then assembling the tube to the base.
In spite of these two problems, I think this is a good product and will be very useful.
