    • Now do the math on your time and explain to the client how it would have been "cheaper" to just use walnut to begin with.... Or at least another domestic hardwood. Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
    • Yeah that is the biggest difference i see, a 30" bed vs. a 48" one. In terms of comparing to a hand planes, do I compare the 30" directly, or should I really divide than number in half to better understand the behavior? I've been going Pondering that..
    • I just recently bought the Griz 814, I hooked mine to 220v and there were only two complaints... #1  It's a knuckle buster in set up, but not a major problem...   And #2... It's a tad loud.  Other than that. It works the way it's supposed to, and it fits the space I had designated for it.  I can't speak to the helical cutters, but everything I've heard and read say's they are the better cutters....  but you give up table length for a better cutter that you admit you'll use from time to time.   Got a coin?  Flip it!
    • Hi Isaac -  My first question is usually about your budget.  But looks like you've set the 400-600 range.  Next question is - what do you use it for?  If you're just jointing short pieces, the benchtop one might suit you just fine.  But in general, their beds are fairly short - making it harder to joint longer pieces.  Not that it cannot be done - many people use them with success.  Just be wary. Have you looked at craiglist?  There are some other options... https://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/tls/5908502747.html that's one that pops up from a quick search. I would see that in 'roughly' the same class as the other two - longer than the rikon, and maybe a tad below the Grizz but not by much.  Buying used, you'd want to bring a straightedge to check the beds for coplaner and check tghe knives to see if they're usable or need to be replaced immediately.    
    • It is finished! Took forever to sand the interior of the spiral, but it looks pretty good I think. https://vimeo.com/195120738
