    For the most part I agree with this. I don't play it quite as loose as some others. If your jointer, or planer yield an error that will multiply as you build your piece and end up with a 1/64" gap...

    Cost per joint: in a production environment 'cost' includes things we don't think about in one man shops or where high end custom work is done. A machine that a part-time college kid can be taught...

    Always good to post positive experiences. Especially from the BORG, Harbor Freight and others who often get derided. I too have had very good service from the flooring folks at Home Depot and at...
