Save your money to spend on a used 15” planer. I have a DeWalt 735; it was okay, these little planers are abusively loud, and can only take a very shallow cut. Since I found my used Griz 15”, the DeWalt has been on vacation. The difference is night and day; depth of cut, feed speed, etc, etc. Instead of spending hours milling, you spend minutes. I only use the “little” planer now for thin stuff, which it does very well at. Plus, the decibels are way lower. Way, way, lower.
