Well, I’ve also wrestled with this question since I don’t have a planer but I’m fixing to build my dream shop. After much thought I have come up with this answer: the bigger the better. I know that’s not much of an answer. My final answer is don’t let your planer be bigger than your pocket book. You know there are a lot of old planers out there that still have a lot of good life in them and maybe they are built better than what you can buy knew. Maybe that’s the way you need to go. Who am I to say? I hope that you make the right decision and get the planer of your dreams. May you always be happy in your work and God Bless.
