As someone else said only you can decide depending on use. I can tel you I have a craftsman (not sure of the model) and tried using it for some kitchen cabinets I am making. I was joining soft maple so that should be easy with a jointer. to me it was a bear to work with. the short table (32”) and under power motor (1/2 hp) just made it hard work. I found a used delta professional and it is like night and day. The delta may not be the best jointer, but works like it should. Bigger table length make a huge difference. I would like to have even more length. So, CL is where the craftsman will go along with about 10 others in my area. Most are between $100-150, but I don’t want to ever join another board on the craftsman.
