Summary: Unit meets my expectations. Arrived punctually. Bought to rough (read rustic) plane a cedar slab table. Gave me what I wanted and more. As I'm in Pacific NW, I'd have appreciated a shavings collection design; it rains some here and working inside generates a major garage cleaning.
Summary: This Planer is awesome! It cuts through wood like butter. It has an easily adjustable depth knob on the front that dials in fine increments without a problem. It has an exhaust chute on the side that can be hooked up to a shop vac. Without a vac it throws wood shavings everywhere.
