I admit to buying cheap, Asian-made tools wherever possible. Problem is the manuals are often factually-erroneous, grammatically incorrect, or downright incomplete.

The second tool is from a 6” Harbor Freight jointer:
I can’t find this thing listed anywhere in the manual. Has anyone seen anything like this before? I assume it has something to do with the cutterhead…
