An argument for a smaller option….

I was looking at a $1000-range jointer and found that I could spend about $1200 and get the Jet 6” Helical or for around $1900 get the 8” Helical. Considering there are a lot of 8-12” jointer less costly I think the quality, noise reduction and ease of blade rotation of a Helical head is worth it.

So, I might eng up with a 6” and when I get a board that is 7-10” It can be sawn long ways and then have two boards that fit on the jointer and glue them together. I like crossing woodgrains anyway. Looks cool.

Anyone say a cheaper larger unit is better?
