Thanks for the great response HorizontalMike. I have a question about your Grizzle DP. How do you like it? Have you measured the RUNOUT on it? A past Girlfriend of mine gifted me a Porter Cable DP from Lowes for around $300.

I never had the heart to tell here the runout was so bad it was almost unusable.. I would try to find another arbor/chuck for it see if that helps but they are all twice as much as the DP costs…

I have never measured the runout, but have to say that I have never had any issues with this DP. IMO, SIZE matters, no matter what ”past girlfriends say”. But honestly, IMO the larger DPs are probably built or QC’d a bit better. Who would ever want to ship 330lb machines back and forth? ;-)
