I would be concern if dropped, the edge would break. Includes stamped steel wings for sides--prefer cast iron. I also purchased the Rockwell dado insert. I had just never used anything quite this powerful. I've been happy with it since the purchase.

Rockwell RK7241S Final Thoughts
"I like things tight."
It was really nice as well and hard to say which is better. Worm drives are about torque but are not light. I also purchased the Rockwell dado insert. This is my 4th Rockwell machine. Loud and dusty, sure, but that is expected.
