Thanks for the chat some month or so ago.
Here are some issues I have that you may be able to respond to.
Blade setup. It would be nice if they are set up when they leave the factory, or do they ’settle’ and therefore need doing before retail and then again have to be done by the user. I found it cut slightly uneven even when on zero and even after my adjustment. I laid a piece of wood across the foot to check the height and see if would move and although it didn’t move it still cut on zero. I will try and set it level on 0.1mm and see if that removes the cut on zero.
No Allen key and no indication of size so I have to fiddle around to find a fit which may not be the best and damage the hexagonal socket shape. It seems odd that one wasn’t supplied. Hardly a cost issue, so why isn’t it provided?
The Plastic foot bob gets in the way and should have an option to click it horizontal so as not to use, or removable, like the height adjuster. I’m levelling long piece before I use a No7 hand plane. As I do not want to start from the ends the foot is in the way and I have to move forward before I start to cut which is annoying.
