Kreg face frame table on CL

I found a Kreg face frame table on CL for $500 and was wondering if it's worth picking up I know these sell for close to 4K new. Thanks

I would buy it but you have to ask yourself do you make enough faceframes to merit the space the thing takes up. I haven't seen the one you are looking at but most of them have a large footprint.

Agreeing with Steve, you should justify the need for any tool in your shop, not just think about it's $ worth, and does your shop have enough room for it to be used in a safe manner. Be safe.

That is a lot of money for something you may use occasionally. I have made many face frames using just the jig with no table and it works fine. Unless you are doing production face frames I would pass on it.
