I have a Belsaw and I really like it.

It will deliver more dimensional consistency in boards
compared to a portable planer. The Belsaw has a
lot of mass and while the feedworks are noisy, the
cut quality is very good. Snipe is usually not a problem
though longer boards need support going in and

Chip collection isn’t its best feature. I have mine as
well enclosed as possible and it still throws chips
out the front. Not a big deal, but not equal
to newer planers.

You can get a lot of different moulding knives
for it and they are inexpensive.

I see them for sale used in my area for $200 and
up. If more woodworkers knew how good they
are, they would be worth more, but as it is
they are an undervalued gem, imo.

$400 is a fair price.
