My feeling is that i shouldn’t have to buy a expensive parallelogram design just to get perfectly coplanar table. I know a dovetail jointer might need shimming, it just shouldn’t need it straight from the factory. If it does then it seems like poor quality control to me.

The PM doesn’t come with a mobile base,thats an issue since they sell it for $189 extra!!
Also i am possibly getting a $200 credit to woodcraft, the PM 54a would now be $799.

My dream jointer would be a Northfield but they are $10,000+ new. I have been living on ebay and my local craigslist but nothing is in my area or with cheap ($100 or less) freight has came up.
