I just got the Grizzly G0452P – only run a few boards thru it but (except for my technique) it planes smooth as butter. Its very quiet and with dust collection hooked up leaves virtually no shavings behind. I am happy…and no I did not get the helical head, could not justify the extra $300 for a hobbiest tool. I know everyone says “get an 8” you will regret it” Well if they want to come and install a new panel in my house so I can get a 220 line in the shop AND haul an 8” machine down the stairs into the basement for me then I guess I should have gotten an 8” one :) I used a 5% coupon and got it for $496 delivered, thats cheaper than the Rigid delivered from HD (looked at that one too) AND the mobile base is built in.
