I highly recommend the Alpha Pioneer DC Plus machine. The quality is excellent and the service from Mark or Greg is second to none. One example as I recall is that someone purchased this same MP machine and needed a new tension scale label for some reason that I do not recall. It was like a $17 item - with Alpha, a spare tension scale comes with the machine. My Alpha machine was calibrated spot on and has been great - nice spring assist clamps, linear string gripper, clutch with ratchet and string ditch, soid mounting system. The Alpha may be a little more expensive but the quality and serice make it the better overall bargain hands down!
