Still have it, wheels still good, and I'm still happy. :)

I don't know about the trim saw attachment, but I do know you can purchase extra shafts and spacers (like the right side wheel adaptor).  Then again, I don't know if my supplier was selling me Genie parts or CabKing parts!  According to John, the parts are basically interchangable.

Hmm - I wonder if they've redesigned the water supply again or if the one I have is redesign you're talking about.  Originally, it was all wheels straight open...all the time.  Mine has each wheel adjustable, but it's a complicated pattern - each of the three knobs has to be in a certain place for one of the four water feeds.  I still have to refer to the chart sometimes to figure out the positioning to get that wheel wet.

Do you still like your Cab King? Wheels still good? Any regrets? If you had it to do over, would you buy it again?

I might get a Genie, but as you've shown, it's nice to afford some extra stuff for the large cost differential (Cab King's made in China).

Do you have to use genuine Genie accessories like the trim saw or Right Side wheel Adaptor or does the Cab King manufacturer offer their own line of accessories?

I understand that they've redesigned the water supply feeds and raised the price to reflect it.

FYI -

I asked an eBay Cab King vendor:
   "Can I use genuine DP Genie accessories (trim saw, box maker, right side wheel adaptor) on this?"

He answered today:
   "I am sorry for the delay. I had to wait for the machine engineer to get in today. As far as we know, the trim saw from DP should fit. The threading on the shaft and shaft size are the same on both machines. Reentel is in development of their own trim saw attachment for this machine and should have it out in time for the Christmas season. I just found out today that we are also going to start shipping 2 additional polishing pads with 50,000 and 100,000 grit diamond polish for free. We are going to start shipping them with the additional items today..."

Hmmm... sounding better all the time.

Thanks for the review, I' looking at replacing an older piece of equipment.
  At the present time I'm still using silcon carbide wheels and looking for
  diamond unit.

 I have a list for Santa now.

So after several months, how is this machine holding up.  Are
  the wheels had to be replaced yet?    I'm ready to get a new unit
  but just want to see how the King cab has worked.  If can save money and your happy
with the performance may help me.

Hey Guys, I got my King a couple months ago. Could not be more pleased. As stated you need to get used to the amount of material that is removed. A lighter touch is the key of course. Not sure about the water. I have indiviual knobs for each wheel including the one for each pad on the end. I can control the amount of water and to what wheel I am using. For the price nothing better.  headspin2

I bought a CabKing in March 2011 and have been very impressed with it.  I was new to cabbing but learnt from trial and error, reading and the internet.  As a beginner, I found it a good unit to use.  After 12 months I've produced dozens of cabs.   I didn't find any major weak points although I haven't used any other machines so can't compare with others.

I got my Cab King 2 weeks ago and love it. I am still not very good at polishing though.  I need to work on that.

Let me start of with this....I was a Diamond Pacific client for about 10 years before I became an Authorized DP Dealer. I became a DP Dealer because their customer service really impressed me. I had a product fail, I called their 800 number MAD AND BOTHERED! The person who answered was kind and courteous, they let me explain the issue with the utmost patients. They asked me to return the item and a few days later they sent me a new one. No questions asked.
Diamond Pacific is an innovator in lapidary  products and stands by their machines. I have been using my Genie in a production mode for over 10 years with no problems. I use DP Nova and Galaxy wheels with exteermely good good return for my investment.
