(raised area, slight crack, seam between two clapboards that wasn't perfectly aligned) it tore the heck out of it. It is a powerful, high speed rotary planer and effects your work
piece the same way a planer or router would. I suspect that it is fantastic on unblemished, un-barnacled-pitted paint
, even multi-layered, but I would be cautious about how it reacts to divots, dings and especially the edges of glass laminations if they are proud of the surface at all. Perhaps Bletso has some input on this?
