Love my DW735 and Grizzly 6” jointer. No complaints as they do their jobs well and blade changing is a simple matter with either machine. Got my Dewalt on sale at HD, and bought the Grizzly used on Craigslist for $200.
Best money I’ve spent because I mill my own wood and usually work with reclaimed lumber which most lumber yards refuse to cut down for me.

There’s another thought… Lumberyards will mill your wood to spec pretty cheaply. Like a couple of bucks per cut. That was my experience here in California but they wouldnt do it when they found out it was reclaimed since it could potentially have nails to damage their expensive machines.

Seriously though, if you cant get both for $1000 or less, you arent trying hard enough. You can DO IT!!!
