  1. I went with the Shop Fox W1859. They're typically more expensive than their Grizzly counter part, but I actually found one cheaper, with free shipping, so I had to do it. I did find a really cheap, used, 6" one that I bought for $80. After using it a couple times, I knew that I needed an 8".

I am considering the Ridgid JP6010, the Grizzly GO814, GO814X, GO452Z as well as the Jet JJ-6HHDX and JJ-6CSDX. Obviously the price-point of the Ridgid is very appealing, but I also want a quality machine that is going to last, without having to take out a 2nd mortgage.
