I have been saving my pennies for a thickness sander. I really need one for surfacing small stock for boxes.
There seems to be only two (and a half) models in my price range: Grizzly G0459 12” and the Performax 628900 Mini 10-Inch (which as far as I can tell is identical to the Jet 10-20 Plus?)
Grizzly G0459 12”: $495.00 on Amazon plus shipping, only one review (5 star).
Performax 628900 Mini 10-Inch: $499.99 on Amazon with free shipping, reviews state tracking problems.
Jet 10-20 Plus: $539.99 at Woodcraft plus shipping, but isn’t this the same as the Performax?
Let me know what I should do. Do you have any experiences with these machines? I am leaning toward the Performax. It seems to be the better deal and looks to be a little smaller to fit better in my shop.
