Review Summary

Just remember, this doweling machine is NOT a replacement for a biscuit cutter! You need to be very accurate in its use, you do not have any slop as you might with a biscuit cutter. It does drill precise 32mm center dowel holes as advertised. It does take a lot more pressure to push the drill bits deep into the wood. The bits themselves dulled rather quickly, and I replaced them with Freud ones. The dust collection adapter is mediocre at best but better than nothing.
Also evertyhing is metric, so I also had to get fractional bits to fit our dowels.
