I thought this was an amazing tool that I’d surely love to try!! It’s like a combination of modern and traditional woodworking techniques; The ease of power tools mixed with the superior finish of hand tools. For lazy folks like me, it beats getting all sweaty using a jointer plane. The noise in the background of the first video is some African Drum music…Check out the videos (courtesy YouTube user SolidwoodMachinery):

Here's the second video of a much bigger machine. The feed-rate and quietness is INCREDIBLE!!:
