If you are in an area where there is considerable trading of used machines, that is very tempting. In my area, it would take a lifetime to collect a shop full of used equipment, unless you just are willing to accept anything. I have a parallelagram jointer, Grizzly go609 with a Byrd cutterhead, and it works just exactly right. Don’t need to shim, just easy to adjust, although it worked exactly right without any adjusting. Had a oliver before, never could get it adjusted exactly right. Sunhill oliver to clarify. Instead of a drum sander, I went with a small open end widebelt sander, works great. Get as large a dust collector as you can find used, sanders need lots of suction.
