We've got the PC and like it lots, but based on a sample of one that opinion probably isn't worth much. Excellent fence, good dust extraction and being able to use the FF size biscuits is a nice option. I would unhesitatingly buy it again, especially if I was in the States as you are, because it'd be so much cheaper. :cry:

Cheers, Alf

I concur with Alf its probabley, ney it is the best one on the market. Wherever you are its deffinately worth the money.

I do a lot of joining and would say its one of my tools in constant use. Had it now since 1997 and its never let me down.

Again as Alf says opinions from now two is not really a prepresentative sample.

Make it three, concur with all the above.
Since you're Stateside best to do a search on the wreck or woodcentral.
