I purchased this machine after reading a lot of top reviews. My inital take on the machine was it is pretty well made. However, when I went to set it up, the instructions were very lacking…there were several steps missing, and they did not even address how to attach the upper work hold down clamp. After l looking closely at the pictures on the web, I finally figured out how to install it.
The machine was very stiff to use at first. After a run of about 10 mortices, I reshapred the chisels and auger bit (that was recommend to me by someone, can’t remember who.) That seemed to help. The more the machine is used the smoother it seems to work.
Holds work down well
accuracy is as good as the operator
INSTRUCTIONS ARE HORRIBLE
Takes a while to work in
Heavy, better off putting in place in and leaving.
