    I've used the NoMAr - older style & found it nicer.

    That looks nice, what are the main differences?

    Bead braking - on the ground / lower - Bread braker is steel lip or optional scatch proof blade ends. Compaired to waist ht. & scratch proof blade ends & off ground

    Mounts to wall,floor or trailer hitch - only. Compaired to hitch,floor,stand.

    Bolted together - compaired to some bolts & welded.

    It comes down to this for me- how often am I gonna use it or share, The height of the person doing the work - table top work or working low / knee height, If you have a garage/trailer/basement space for it - city living/counrty living. Portability to move it or let it be. Age / strength of bending over & lifting or working at table top height.
