    That is just two clicks from "zero" on the Festool electric planer. I thought it pretty light for a power tool. Maybe those marks didn't indicate MM. I'll probably never know now. (I've already...

    I guess, I'm just admitting that I have no desire to learn it. :) I'll just focus on getting faster and more efficient with my hand planes.
