the joiner/planner blades were fine. That's why I gave them an excellent rating. The joiner/planner not so. Talked to a "customer service" tech who didn't seem very interested. I ask him about the locking handles. He said they're suppose to lock the infeed and outfeed tables. I ask him if I might have over tightened them and if I should just tighten them a little. All he said was, "You could try it". Not much specificity.
It remains to be seen if that will work. I got disgusted and quit for a while.
