Now what I didn't like so much about it. First, the interaction manual that comes with it is terrible. You are better off not having one at all it is so bad. One of the nuts that came with the machine didn't have threads cut in it so the out feed table for the planer is only held on with 2 screws right now. Not a huge deal, but should have been caught. You can't turn the machine on without the dust collection housing being attached. Again, not a huge deal but it wasn't mentioned anywhere in the owners manual and took me about 5 min to figure out why the machine wouldn't start. Finally, the last issue I have is with the gauges that tell you how much material you are removing. For the jointer, it is just a little sticker that you can move around with your finger. No way to calibrate it and not something that seems very permanent. For the planer the gauge is a little more permanent; however, it is in tenths. Why they would make the gauge in tenths, especially when the manual recommends cuts no bigger than 1/16th at a time, I don't know.
Overall, I am impressed with what this machine can do considering all the bigger it is and how much it cost. It definitely isn't a professional grade machine, but for the hobby woodworker it will work just fine in my opinion.
