Pros: It's kinda pretty, and under careful use, will thickness plane wood.
Cons: Blades, set screws and feed problems.
Wow. Wish I'd read more reviews (besides Pop Wood's) before I bought. Blades are crap, but that's not the worst -- the first time I tried to reverse them, half of the set screws wallowed out (yes, 12 out of 24) and rounded over the t-wrench. deWalt guy said, "yeah they got em a little tight" They're sending me more screws and new blades, but in the meantime I have 12 freakin screws to tap out. It seems to finish pretty good, but as most reviewers said, you have to baby it and don't try to hog too much. If you use mostly hardwood, like maple & hickory, this might not be your machine.
