Ok. I'm retired and finally have the time and money to pursue my love of woodworking. Trouble is so many choices. I've stated down the road with Festool Kapex and CMS Router table and router. I have an old contractor table saw that will eventually be replaced with probably a Saw Stop. But right now I want to move forward with the purchase of a band saw (probably 17") and a combo jointer/planer. Grizzly makes some nice machines from what can see but Laguna does as well. I've read some no so nice things about Laguna and some real positive things about Grizzly. Question is, am I reading just planted marketing hype or is one better than the other? Are there other better models out there that I should consider? Sure could use some guidance from the community.
