All Allen wrenches were provided for assembly. I only had to tighten the brake pedal. Almost makes it look like I know what I'm doing. The paper is difficult to change. I like the longer conveyor on the Powermatic.

Powermatic PM2244 Final Thoughts
"All quality made."
No tearing panels off to access a hidden part. Time will tell if it will stand up to everyday use. It took maybe 15-20 minutes to have the sander up and running. But light cuts worked fine, no problems. These are just my experiences, nothing more.
