I have the Ridgid and it is a well built machine. I looked at others that cost much more, but the Ridgid pretty much had what they had at less cost.

Loren is spot on. While you can get pretty decent results to start with, it really takes a bit of milling and checking and experimenting to get that feel for what the board needs to get it really flat.

It is important to have a nice flat surface for referencing. I have a granite top on my TS so I use that.
