I've been using my HF34706 (almost identical to the MC900) for about 1.5 years, without serious disappointment. I haven't yet tried outboard turning, but when I do I'll use a separate auxiliary toolrest. The flimsy elbow contraption that came with it looks like it's designed to break; probably also supplied with the MC900. Joe
