Great machine, but too small a dust port
This is a great machine and came ready to use and perfectly aligned! However, the shipping pallet and associated crating is very flimsy and had significant damage. There were several nicked areas of paint, but not sure if that happened during shipping or prior to that. The website advertises a 6" dust port, but it only comes with 4". if you face joint anything wider than 6' with a depth greater than 1/8', the dust plenum clogs and chips spew out all over the place. A custom made 6" dust port is needed for full 12" jointing. I would have expected built in casters for the high cost of this machine. Due to this dust collection issue and lack of casters, I only gave this 3 stars. From a practical standpoint, the machine surfaces anything you throw at it and provides super smooth faces/edges. Customer service ( I dealt with Ray) was fantastic. I chose not recommended below solely due to the dust collection issue.
