CL – I didn’t use it that much, but I loaned it to a guy and I think he ran a lot of used barn siding through it which probably contributed to its demise.

Run some stock that is at least 6-8 inches wide with a 1/16 cut and see how it does. If it doesn’t feed properly, forget it. Also take a vernier or micrometer and measure the thickness on both sides of the boards, and if it isn’t within 0.005 at all points, I’d also reject it. (I wouldn’t worry about snipe, ‘cause that pretty much is common to all lunch box planers.)
