The big problem here is a very (and I mean very, very, very) poorly designed base. It is made from some very soft black plastic. The depth control is horrible to say the least. You can set it and it will move as you use it. It has two screws, one on each side to adjust the depth control. You must get them both to exactly the same depth for it to be uniform. Good luck with that. Even if you did get them to the same height they won't be there for very long. As you cut there is vibration. What happens with vibration? Things move. You guessed it. The depth is now changing as you cut. So what started out as a (hopefully) uniform cut is now changing as you work.
I like porter cable tools, I own about a half dozen. This is not up to Porter cable quality. Redesign the base and make it out of some metal and you would have a very usable tool. But right now the way it is made it won't get used too much.
My only gripe is that the fence/depth guard slipped on me the first time I used it and I had a deep cut that needed some wood putty to repair it. Just make sure you tighten down the screws that hold the guard in place.
Other than that, been very happy with it.
Kudos to the company though because they were very empathetic and attentive to our needs when the original order was never received. Upon checking with the USPS, they claimed it was lost or stolen while in transit. So, due to the extended delay of our order, the company immediately shipped the item again AND refunded 25% of the purchase cost to help mend the relationship.
