I've just read the article...and I have had (for a number of years) the D4R Pro. It has proved to be an excellent choice for the various wood working projects I wanted to use dove-tail joints. One pleasant surprise was the very reasonable cost of the high quality OEM replacement bits from Leigh... that re-affirmed my choice!
this is exactly the information I was looking for. Thank you!
