Need some adjustment to perform as promised
on December 4, 2013
It has amazing function, and yes, it accurate, but it does not ready to use out of the box. It needs some adjustment in order to function well. The spring is too strong, so, it bounch back hardly. Just cut the spring a little bit to reduce the bounch back force, and it will be ok. The sharp edge, it is not really sharp, because it sharpen in the wrong way, I think. It sharpen from outside in. The result is not so smooth cutting, and we have to smoothen it with chisel. We can fix the problem by re-sharpen it with diamond files. Just draw it from inside out following the angle of the square chisel. The bottom line is: this product is not ready to use out of the box, needs some adjustment, and it will perform as promised. Almost fair enough for the price. Although leaving a question: why Porter and Cable not just make the right product?
