I think so myself. But from a privately sent email, such an animal does
...although I'd be very suprised if Buffalo ever made something like that.
Sure isn't anything on their website now that comes close. :-) And of
course fitting that into my gara - uh, workshop is out of the question. I'd
need to buy my neighbor's back yard.
I was going to take one of my old Grizzly catalogs but now I'm not so
But like I said, I gotta go see this thing. And since they're combining a
