I think well worth it, January 28, 2001
Reviewer: A. Comer Gaither from Earlysville, VA USA
I am fairly picky and actually had both the Lamello and the Dewalt side by side to see if the latter was worth the extra. The DeWalt's fence is quicker to adjust, and is probably fine for many applications, but there was some noticeable play, and the Lamello had absolutely none. Also, the Dewalt fence is not quite as versatile, but requires less set-up. What convinced me to mail the DeWalt back and not the Lamello is that when cutting, the Lamello never skidded even when messing around with just one hand.. The Dewalt did skid some unless I paid attention to what I was doing. Also, the Lamello has a clutch, and cuts very smoothly, quietly, and is made with a significantly more metal than DeWalt. It is easy to see why it costs more. While I am sure people can do a fine job with even the least expensive model out there, the Lamello gives you quite a bit more for the extra money.

If you use biscuit joinery a lot, it is worth it to have a better tool. Lamello simply makes a more solid, powerful and clean tool than the competition. It costs more to not get the mass production vendors, but it is a better tool. Like a Fein shop vacuum, the quality is just worth it here versus PC or DeWalt. When I used the DeWalt, it threw sawdust all over me. Wierd engineering that.
