Assembly of the jointers knockdown stand was a bit of a challenge because some the screw holes did not allign. The model that has the all one piece stand would have been worth the extra 75.00 dollars for all the trouble. And the box that it was shipped in was slightly damaged but the styrofoam it was in was in about 100 pieces. You would think that for such a heavy piece of machinery it would have been shipped in a sturdier box or a crate. The switch was also in about 25 pieces. Their customer service did a good job with the switch and sending me the correct wheel assembly as the one that came with it was the wrong one. So they did provide good service. Once I did get it assembled it is a nice machine. And so far it has met my expectations.
