I remember when I bought my porter cable lunchbox planer someone told me, "You're going to want the dust collection hood with that."
I figured I'd just get it later... and then I used it for a VERY small project... holy cow that's a lot of shavings!
Probably too late with this, but here goes anyway. I've owned that set for years. Bought it 'cause I needed a lot of dowel stock, accurately sized and in specific hardwoods. The tool met all my needs. Easy to dial in and easy to use. Feed it clear, straight grained wood and keep the blades sharp. You will need a big drill motor especially on the bigger dowels.
