    • I have both. I use the small one much more. Get the one you think you will use the most. Based on your projects. Or your next project. A way to save is to make your own dominoes. I have had the small one since it was first introduced. And that is when I stopped making M & T joints. A time saver with high accuracy.
    • 500 due to the fact that its cheaper, lighter, less bulky and covers 98% of what I do. Before you buy a 700 go handle one they are rather bulky heavy something that can be much more apparent when you actually get your hands on the machine.
    • So back to that niggling 1/4", it didn't seem so farfetched to me.  It would only take a tiny difference in the mounting angle of the legs to the carcass to create that much difference in the position of the feet.  So dusting off some old (very old) geometry with the Google brush, I was reminded of this (OK, I probably never actually knew this): http://mathcentral.uregina.ca/QQ/database/QQ.09.07/h/lucy1.html So given that you have the three lengths of a triangle you can calculate any of the three angles.  If I've done the calculation correctly and assuming the legs are 100cm long it would only take an angle of .363 degrees  to move the tip of the leg .635 cm (1/4").  This may not be the exact dimension, but it makes the point that the error here is easily within the surface variation of the "flat" bottom of the carcass.   The good news, I don't think anyone visiting your niece is just going to happen to have a plumb bob in there pocket.  
    • I love my 500.  I use the 5, 6 and 10 MM bits, but recommend having the 5, 8 and 10.
