Thanks Loren, you have stated it well. I would like to get as much accuracy as I can for my budget. Do you think the MiniMax would be more accurate? I can’t find any information online about them, but I know they have a better name. Even wild speculation would be helpful at this point. Also, did you find the 20” rip capacity very limiting? Or does the sliding table take care of it? Again, thanks for taking the time to reply.

@emart – I do understand where you are coming from, but I think these machines will have a better quality than what I could find to fill the shop with my budget. A 12” jointer alone would be a big investment. Not to mention a sliding table saw. I had to sell all my large tools to move across the country and would need everything. Router table, jointer, planer, miter saw, etc. Those things add up pretty quickly when you want to get decent quality/capacity. A nice used TS + 8” jointer puts me at about what I would pay for the MiniMax.
